Every day, hundreds, if not, hundreds of thousands of people go through this alley because it is part of the Goswamis’ parikrama path. Although it is a public, highly traversed area, it is also regularly dirtied with all kinds of trash and filth, and people even do bathroom business here.
The idea is that we can restore the walls enough to paint decorative murals of the pastimes of Krishna, both beautifying the alley, and re-enforcing the fact that it is not a place to litter and make dirty.
At its current level of sponsorship, it is being cleaned once a day.
About Three-Goswami Samadhi
When facing the samadhi, you’ll see Raghunatha Bhatta’s samadhi mound on the left side, Krishna Dasa Kaviraja’s in the center, and Raghunatha Dasa Gosvami’s on the right side. All three Goswamis left this world on the same day, but in different years. At the time of their disappearances, there was a fear that marauding Muslims would dig up and desecrate the bodies of Vaishnava devotees. Therefore, their bodies were cremated under the instructions of Srila Jiva Goswami. Some of their ashes were kept at the Teen Gosvami Samadhi site, and part of their ashes were enshrined elsewhere.
