Sri Yukteswar Samadhi Temple

Sri Yukteswar Giri samadhi mandir (burial place temple) in the garden of the Puri ashram.
Paramahansa Yogananda had his younger brother Sananda build this temple over the burial site of Sri Yukteswar's body and supervised all the details of the construction through a regular correspondence with his brother. Yoganandaji was highly pleased with his brothers inspired design of the gleaming white marble structure topped with its golden lotus made of polished copper. Construction of the samadhi temple was completed in 1952.
