1 day trip tour to Kamarpukur and Jairambati

A day-trip from Kolkata to Kamarpukur and Jairambati can be very hectic but also fulfilling. Since both the maths close promptly at mid-morning, devotees have to reach early in the morning to collect the bhog coupon, visit both the sites, and complete partaking of bhog, all of this by noon. Alternatively, the first part of the day may be spent at Kamarpukur, partaking in the bhog there.

While in Kamarpukur, it is best that devotees first visit Sri Ramakrishna’s house to avoid disappointment when the gates close at mid-day. Other spots connected with Sri Ramakrishna’s life are located within walking distance outside the Mission gates, and can be visited any time of the day. Local girls and women eagerly double as guides for a modest fee (Rs 30-50). The only problem for some devotees is that only Bengali is spoken. The evening may be spent at Jairambati when the math there reopens, enjoying the simple beauty of Ma Sarada Devi’s village before starting back for Kolkata. In the afternoon, when both the maths close for recess, nearby places of interest may be visited. Please note that devotees are expected to maintain moun or silence, or talk softly, within the math premises.

Tip: One of the best facilities provided in the Jairambati Math are clean toilets and drinking water, both well-marked for the benefit of devotees who are day visitors. Unfortunately, this essential need is missing on the Kamarpukur Math premises
