Amta Kalibari (Temple at Amta): Amta, the birthplace of Bhabapagla in Dacca of Bangladesh, has got a temple of Goddess kali. Here the Divine Mother has got the name of 'Anandamayi' from Bhaba.

Kalna Kalibari (Temple at Kalna): Bhabar Bhabani Mandir:
This temple is situated at Ambika Kalna of Burdwan district of West Bengal in India. This temple demands a particular mention. At the age of forty - one, Bhaba came to this West Bengal from Bangladesh and for the rest forty-one years of his life time he made this Ambika Kalna his residence. So, actually this temple is also home of Bhabapagla. At the time of coming to this W.B., Bhaba brought with him the image of Mother 'Anandamayi ' of Amta Kalibari and settled here  with a new name 'Bhabar Bhabani', As this is the home of Bhaba, so we get the priviledge of seeing the unique shetches and needle works made by Bhaba preserved by his grand-children. This Bhabar Bhabani Mandir is also very much important for another reason. After passing away of Bhabapagla, his mundane body has been kept here at a place which we call 'Samadhi Mandir'. This 'Samadhi Mandir' was made according to the order of Bhaba at his life time for the days to come. Now a days the grand children of Bhaba are taking care of this temple by their heart and soul. Sankalpa Chowdhuri, the youngest son of Bhaba is still staying here and Sanjoy Chowdhuri, the grand son of Bhaba is now the Secretary of this temple. The aura of love and affection of Bhabapagla are still hovering over this historic temple.

At this temple goddess Kali has got the name ‘Bhabar Bhabadara’ from Bhabapagla himself. A beautiful image of Bhabapagla made of white stone, creates a sensation in the hearts of every devotees at the very first glance.  Before some years of passing away, Bhabapagla chose this land for his heavenly purpose, when he came year for a picnic. Serenity is it's beauty.  Swami Someshnanda Giri, the direct disciple of Bhaba, is the Principal Maharaj and In-Charge of this temple.

 

Swami Someshnanda Giri (Formally - Sadai Chand Chowdhuri) , generally known as Maharaj, has sacrificed his whole life at the service of Bhaba, his master. The moto of his life is to established the wish and order of Bhaba.  Though born with blue blood, he has renounced the pomp and pleasure of his family life and has embraced the ascetic life of a Sanyasin. He got his initiation from Bhaba at his tender school life and from then on he was like the shadow of his master till the nick of time of bhaba. Bhaba wanted to stay at the bank of river Ganges for eternity. That's why  ignoring the shortage of accounts, Maharaj is trying to create and abode of peace.
