When the family’s property was divided among the brothers of Sarada Devi, this house was given to her brother, Prasanna Mukhopadhya.
It is believed that Sarada Devi started preaching Brahmacharya and Sanyasa in this old house. She worshipped Goddess Jagaddhatri at this site. The house is now under the supervision of Belur Math.
