Joyrambati is three miles to the west of Kamarpukur and two miles to the east of Shihar – the birthplace of Hridayrama Mukhopadhyaya, a nephew of Bhagwan Sri Ramakrishna Dev. Bishnupur and Arambag are twenty-seven miles and twelve miles distant respectively from Joyrambati.
The village, surrounded on all sides by green pastures, untrimmed meadows, trees and shrubs, has a rural atmosphere. The area that extends for about half a mile between this village and the Amodar is very fertile and yields all kinds of vegetables and other agricultural products.
After the birth of Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi, who is worshipped as Holy Mother, the spiritual consort of Sri Ramakrishna, the village began to show signs of prosperity which was not so much in evidence before her advent. The main source of irrigation of the nearby cultivable lands is the big lake called ‘Aher’ or’Mother’s Tank’ or ‘Mayer Dighi’; where the visitors and the village-folks take their bath and get refreshed. It is said that the Holy Mother in her girlhood used to cut grass for cows in neck-deep water from this very tank. At present water is supplied to this reservoir from the river Amodar by means of an electric pump and is used for the irrigation of the surrounding fields.
There is another tank called ‘Barujjey Pukur’ (i.e. Banerji’s tank) which lies on the south-eastern corner of this village and is surrounded with palmyra trees.
