Gita Vatika, spread over 5.2 acres, is situated in the northern part of the city. It has been established by the founder editor of Kalayan, Swami Hanuman Prasad Poddar, who lived here for 45 years and established the Hanuman Prasad Poddar Memorial Samiti. The Samiti has set up a Shri Radha Krishna Meditation Centre and built a magnificent temple of Sri Radha Krishna in Naagra style of north India. ‘Hare Ram & Hare Krishna’ chanting, started from 1968, is still continuing day and night. Recently a majestic Mandap (canopy) has been constructed for this purpose.
