The word Mayapur derives from Miyapur (Bengali: মিঞাপুর [Miñāpura]), the Bengali name of a village, known as Muslim-inhabited village, specially for the settlement of Muslim fishermen. The name Miyapur was mentioned in various government documents, including maps and surveys. In the 20th century, the Gaudiya Vaishnava reformer Bhaktivinoda Thakur proclaimed this place as Mayapur.Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was born in the city in 1486 AD. Mayapur is one of the nine dhams of the holy islands, which look like petals of a lotus flower. The main attraction in the city is the Chandrodaya Temple, which is the first shrine established by ISKCON in the area. Tourists can also pay their respects at the samadhi of Prabhupada, who was the founder of ISKCON. Shree Chaitanyamath, the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Chand Kazi’s samadhi and the temple of Goswami Maharaj are other main attractions.

Mayapur is a tourist’s delight, with over 80 lakh visitors in 2007 that included 50,000 foreign nationals. Tourists from close to 40 countries are regular visitors to Mayapur for practicing spiritual yoga.
