Jagadbandhu Sree Angan

Type: Monastery
Contributed By: Nayeem


Jagadbandhu Sree Angan or Sreedham Sree Angan was established by the “Jagadbandhu Shundar” during the “Roth Jatra” festival of “Ashar 1306” of Bengali calendar. The land for the Angan was donated by “Sreeram Sundar” and “Sreeram Kumarmudi”. Everyday lots of “bhokto”(devotee) used to visit the place. For them, the Angan has a facility for providing accommodations. It has around 30 rooms that can take 150 devotee. This Angan is a specious area, and there are several prayer hall around it. If you enter the prayer halls, you have to take your shoes off.

Most interesting thing about the Angan premise is, that it was the “Nouka Mandir”. Inside the Mandir, a boat is placed. The founder, Jagadbandhu used to go for a jaunt at river Padma with His devotees, and returned during the last part of the night. This is the reason for such name. Beside the Nouka Mandir, there is a “Roth” placed inside a building. The Roth was completely made from wood. This is not looked like a giant one, only a medium one. During the “Roth jatra” at Ashar of Bengali Almanac, this is used to exhibit for the people. This place is calm and relent place, no chaos from the outside life. If you pass some time inside the premise, it will simply please your mind.
