Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya’s House

This is located south of Jagannatha Mandira on the bank of Shweta Ganga tank. This was the residence of Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya.

When Lord Chaitanya first came to Puri, He fainted in front of Deity of Lord Jagannatha and Sarvabhauma took Him to his home. Mahaprabhu stayed here for 2 months before leaving for His south Indian tour. Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya spoke to Lord Chaitanya in his house about the impersonal doctrine for serve days and finally Lord Chaitanya defeated all his impersonalist conclusions and bestowed his causeless mercy upon him by showing His Shad-bhuja rupa, or six-armed form, a combined form of Lord Krishna, Lord Rama and Lord Chaitanya. There are Radha-Krishna deities called Radha-Rasikaraja in this house worshipped by Sarvabhauma Bhattacharaya. There is a hidden tunnel in the house that is said to lead in two directions – to the sea and to the Jagannatha Temple. It is said that this tunnel was used by Sri Chaitanya.
