Nutan Bari Overview

Ranked 2 of 13 sightseeing in Jairambati

Nutan Bari, also referred to as the New Home of Sarada Devi, was constructed by Swami Saradananda, during 1915 and 1916. The site is located on the western side of the Punya Pukur, a holy tank. This site is dedicated to Goddess Jagadhatri, a form of Goddess Durga. In the ancient times, this place was used for providing accommodation to the pilgrims visiting Jairambati.

This place has four rooms made of mud walls and straw roofs. One of the rooms was used by Sarada Devi as her bedroom and other, as her worshipping chamber. The preaching hall has now been transformed into a temple that is enshrined with a life-size portrait of Sarada Devi. The room adjoining the preaching hall was used as a kitchen, while the room opposite to the kitchen belonged to Nalini-Didi, niece of Sarada Devi.

The last room, a prayer hall dedicated to Goddess Jagaddhatri, is bounded by railings. The room is also believed to have been used by Swami Saradananda and Subodhananda during their visit to the destination. The shrine has now been converted into an ashram.
