Founded by Srimat Swami Swarupananda Giri as a simple, forest hermitage near Sitakund, Chittagong District, Bangladesh, one and a half kilometres from the town centre beside the road to the ancient Chandranath Temple, through the efforts of his successor, Srimat Swami Jyotiswarananda Giri (1909-2006), Sankar Math O Mission grew to become a large ashrsam with numerous branches Bangladesh, India and worldwide.
