Brahmapur is a holy place because Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu passed through this place during His south India tour. Around 4 km from Brahmapur town there is a village known as "Nimaikhanda" where Mahaprabhu took little rest under a banyan tree near Mishra bandha (pond).
In the year of 1986 on the occasion of 500th birth anniversary of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, ISKCON padayatra party toured this village. It was headed by Srila Gour Govinda Swami, H.H. Lokanath Swami and was accompained by H.G. Gour nitai Das. Also in 1998 ISKCON has acquired half acres of land at Brahmapur to built a beautiful temple for Sri Sri Sri Radha-Radhakanta Mahaprabhu and a guest house to spread the original message of Srila Prabhupada and Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. By the blessings of H.H. Bhakti Caru Swami Maharaj, community here is growing nicely.
