Mayamari is not far from Jagannath Temple, on the banks of Jalanga. It is believed to be indistinguishable from the Talavan forest in Vrindavan.
The history of this place is told in Sri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya. Lord Balarama, making His pilgrimage, came to Navadvipa and stopped here to rest. Local brahmanas told Him of a demon named Maya, who caused many disturbances to the inhabitants of these places. Balarama went to this demon, and after a long battle he killed him. Since then, this place has been called Mayamari.
