With the famous annual Gaura Purnima festival at ISKCON’s headquarters in Mayapur, West Bengal running from February 17th to March 11th, and thousands of devotees and pilgrims pouring into the spiritual city, there’s now an alternative, more peaceful way to get there from Kolkata airport.

Avoiding the bumpy, risky roads and pollution, travelers can instead book the Jaladuta boat service organized by the Mayapur Tourism department and enjoy a relaxing cruise down the river Ganga.

The boat leaves from Vivada Jetty at Millennium Park 2, twenty minutes’ drive from ISKCON Kolkata. It then passes by villages and beautiful scenic countryside, before reaching Prabhupada Ghat in Mayapur, just ten minutes’ walk from the ISKCON temple.
