Maynadal Temple




Maynadal is a small village situated in Khairasole and is known for kirtan among the Vaishanabs across the country. It is said that Chaitanyadev took rest in the village during his pilgrimage to this Rarh region after taking “Sanyas” from Keshab Bharti in Katowa. Mahaprabhu resides here in a temple built with terracotta craftsmanship. Param Vaishnav Nrisingha Ballav Mitra Thakur came here and he not only established an idol of Mahaprabhu but also popularized the Manoharshahi Kirtan. We come to know from the writings of Harekrishna Mukhopadhyay that Maynadal was once an excellent centre of learning for kirtan and playing Mridangam. The tradition of kirtan is still prevalent here.
