Welcome to the Seat of the Siddhas (The Illuminated Ones)
(an ancient ashram of Sri Anandamayi Ma)

The very first and holiest of all holy ashrams of Sri Anandamayi Ma, founded as early as 1926 at the seat of the Siddhas, the Siddheswari, in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, which was for long in a very poor condition, is now under complete renovation and is scheduled to be formally inaugurated on 7th February 2008.

Sri Anandamayi Ma proclaimed more than eight decades back that this place now known as Siddheshwari, where exists one of the most ancient temples of goddess Kali, was the seat of the siddhas, the illuminated and realised sages, even 5,000 years before. This sanctified site, where many miraculous and unbelievable incidents happened in the divine presence of Anandamayi Ma, and where she was first named as "Ma Anandamayi" by the paragon of her original devotees, commonly known as ‘Bhaiji', Sri Jyotish Chandra Roy, has now become a place of real pilgrimage for all devotees and admirers of Ma.

All those who are keen to visit the holy place, situated at 14 Siddheshwari Lane, Dhaka, very close to the renowned "Siddheshwari Kali Mandir", may directly contact Sri Jayanta Bhownik, the Ashram secretary either on telephone 0088- (0)98565 26557 or through e-mail
