‘Amodar Ghat’ & ‘Mayer Dighi’ a large & deep pond in Joyrambati is belonged to Sri SriMatri Mandir. During Her earlier days Mother used to cut grass in this pond to feed cows. One Bus stop is at the bank of this pond known as ‘Mayer Ghat’.
The Rivulet Amodar, which was regarded by the Holy Mother as the Ganga, has formed on the northern out-skirt of the village a sort of a triangular-shaped peninsula which looks exactly like the back of a tortoise. Being dotted with marks of cremation, it presents a picturesque sight that excites a spirit of renunciation by reminding people of the transitoriness of the world. The course of the Amodar is towards the north at this particular place. Swami Saradananda used to meditate daily under the shade of the Amlak (myrobalan) tree that stood in the middle of this small peninsula during his stay at Joyrambati. Yogin-Ma, Golap-Ma and others, after their bath in this sacred river spent much of their time in meditation and in reading of the Gita, Chandi etc. Subsequently, a brick-built bathing-ghat was constructed on the spot where the Holy Mother used to take bath.
Joyrambati, the small village is twenty-seven miles distant from Bishnupur in Bankura District. The place is two miles to the east of Shihar and three miles to the west of Kamarpukur, the holy birthplace of Shri Shri Thakur.
The humble vibes of this holy place convey the message of Dharma, Karma and Moksha. Shri Shri Sarada Devi, the spiritual consort of Bhagavan Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa, was born in Joyrambati in 1853. Outwardly, she presented herself as an ordinary woman to the World for hiding her divine essence of nature. The veiling figure of the motherhood of God was truly an incarnation of wisdom, welfare and forgiveness. A true prophet of the modern age, Shri Shri Thakur was survived 34 years by the Holy Mother. The birthplace of the Mother and Guru of all disciples of Shri Shri Thakur has become a sacred place of pilgrimage for the people seeking eternal peace and self-purification. .
