Champahatti, in the Vardaman district, is the place of Shri Vaninath, the younger brother of Shri Gadadhara Pandit. In Krishna lila he was Kamalaka sakhi. The Deities established by him of Gaura Gadadhara are located here. Also at this place Jayadeva Goswami resided along with his wife. Due to fear of name, fame and adoration, Jayadeva Goswami left the opulent palace conditions of King Ballal Sen and,-constructing a humble hut, lived peacefully here and composed the glorious Gita Govinda which Mahaprabhu was so fond of hearing. Just hearing these beautiful slokas sung by Svarupa Damodara used to cause Mahaprabhu to become ecstatic. Gaura Premanandi!
