"On the banks of the Ganges in Koladwip, Nabadwip, the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math shines resplendent. The flag flies high, singing the Math's glories to the world. There the residents sing the glories of Lord Gauranga (Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu) and aspire to serve Sri Sri Radha Govinda in the line of Srila Rupa Goswami."
Located in the holy land of Nabadwip, in West Bengal, India, the Temple of Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math was founded in 1941 by Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Dev Goswami Maharaj. (A Math is a place dedicated to the development of spiritual values and service to the Supreme Lord.)
Situated about seventy-five miles north of Calcutta, the land of Navadwip is famous for being the place of the Appearance and Pastimes of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. The word Saraswat refers to the spiritual line and followers of Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Thakur, the Spiritual Master of Srila Sridhar Maharaj and Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupad.
Srila Sridhar Maharaj has stated: "Here in Nabadwip, we find a happy place where the Absolute is the most generous in His benevolence. When the Absolute is distributing Himself, He becomes Sri Chaitanyadeva. And that Sri Chaitanyadeva, in the highest stage of His mercy, is found here."
