Sri Ramakrishna Kutir

If you are going to visit Amarkantak, you can stay at Sri Ramakrishna Kutir. We stayed there three days in 2007 during our tour at Amarkantak. It was an unforgettable memory. The cordial behavior of Secretary Maharaj and other monks were remarkable. We took part in daily evening prayers in the temple. Daily we got prasada from the temple. Still today we recollect that golden memories.

Amarkantak is an old pilgrimage centre (Topobhumi). This place is the source of three rivers – the Narmada, the Sone and the Johila. It is also the meeting point of the Vindhyas, the Satpura and the Maikal hills. The natural scenery is very beautiful and calm. You can visit Sri Narmada mata temple, Narmada Udgam (Source of river Narmada) , Mata ki Bagia (Garden of Sri Narmada mata), Sonmuda (Source of river Sone), Kapildhara, Dugdha Dhara, Durga Dhara, Vrigu Kamandul, Sri Yantra Mandir, Sri Jaleswar Mahadev Temple and many other old temples. The calm and holy environment of this place will certainly give you some inner feelings.

Sri Ramakrishna Kutir (a monastery) is situated on the banks of river Narmada. You can stay here for two or three days. There are other Ashrams and lodges near the temple.
