Advaita Acharya discovered the original Deity of Madanmohan (Krsna) in Mahavan-Gokul and served Him here at the base of an old "vat" tree. Before His departure for Navadvip He entrusted the Deity to brahmana Chaubhe in Mathura. Years later Caitanya Mahaprabhu sent Sanatana Goswami to Vrindavan to discover lost places of Krisna's pastimes and write books about devotional service. Advaita Acarya performed his bhajana here at Advaita-vat at the base of the hill.
This is the place where Shri Advaita Acharya resided when he came to Vrindavan. Advaita Acharya is the incarnation of Mahavishnu who appeared in this mortal world as one of the intimate associates of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Advaita Vata is very close to the historic Madanmohan temple built by Shrila Sanatan Goswami. Advaita Acharya stayed under the Banyan tree at this place for several days. Under this tree He served the deity of Madan-Gopal with great love and devotion. Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu also resided here for some time during His visit to Vrindavan. There is a monument erected at this place in remembrance of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s stay at Advaita Vata. Web site : http://advaitavat.blogspot.it/
