Subordinate Branch-Śrīpāṭa of Śrīnivāsa Ācārya Ṭhākura

Mānikyahāra is situated in the district of Murshidābād. One can get down at Bājārsau station in Kāṭwā-Ājimgañja railway route and from there one can travel four kilometers south-east by van-rickshaw to reach this Śrīpāṭa.

This Śrīpāṭa is a subordinate branch Śrīpāṭa of Śrīnivāsa Ācārya Ṭhākura. The worship of Śrī Rādhā- Śyāmasundara is continued till today very nicely by the Gosvāmī family. Once the Deity of Śrī Rādhā Ṭhākurāṇī was stolen and then again another Deity of Śrī Rādhā was installed here. It is memorable that this Deity of Rādhā-Śyāmasundara was installed by the king of Banoyārībāda and the queen Manamohinī Devī. The pictures of Śrīnivāsa Ācārya, Narottama Dāsa Ṭhākura and Śyāmānanda Prabhu, alongwith the left foot-print of Śrī Kṛṣṇa and the picture af Pañcatattva are exhibited in this temple. Śrī Rādhā-Śyāmarāya can be visited in Sāṭui village which is on the same road going to Mānikyahāra. Or else, one can come to this Sāṭui village by getting down at Caurigāchā station in the same railway track of Ājimgañja. Śrī Rādhā and Śyāmarāya are presently worshiped in two different temples. But in both the temples vacant places have been filled up by Śrī Kṛṣṇa at the side of Śrī Rādhā and by Śrī Rādhā at the side of Śrī Kṛṣṇa and thus the divine pairs are worshiped together.The temple is many years old which can be understood by seeing the temple-walls which have been built with small bricks.
