Teen Gosvami Samadhi (Three Gosvami)

Teen Goswami Samadhi (samadhis of three Goswamis) is about 20 meters from Radha Govinda Temple.

Raghunatha Bhatta Goswami (1563), Krisnadasa Kaviraja Goswami (1583) and Raghunatha dasa Goswami (1588) left this word on the same day but in different year.
Raghunatha Dasa in 1582, Raghunatha Bhatta in 1579, and the year of Krsnadasa Kaviraja is not recorded.

If we look into the shrine we will see three small square marble platforms. The one on our left marks Raghunatha Bhatta Goswami’s samadhi, the center one, Krsna dasa Kaviraja Goswami’s samadhi, and the one our right Raghunatha Dasa Goswami’s samadhi.

For sometimes during the late fifteen hundreds and most of the sixteen hundred, it became necessary to suspend the system of entombing the body of a great saint, due to fear of the Moguls desecrating the shrine. Thus here in Radha-kunda the bodies of the great devotees were burnt on the bank of Sivakhari. The ashes of these three Goswamis were entombed here.

On the order of Srila Jiva Goswami some of the ashes of Raghunatha Dasa Goswami were entombed on the bank of Radha-kunda in the Gopinatha temple and some of the ashes of Raghunatha Bhatta Goswami were entombed in a garden in Vrindavana.
