Daihat is located on the Bandel-Howra railway line two miles from the station. Daihat is the place of Shri Mukunda Ghosh, the brother of Shri vasudeva Ghosh. The Deity that he worshiped, Shri Rasika Raya, is still present in Daihat. Daihat is also the birthplace of Vamsi Vadananda or Vamsidas as he is called in Shri Bhakti-ratnakara. In Krishna lila he is the most dear flute of Krishna. His place of residence in Shridham Navadwip was very close to Kulia. When Lord Chaitanya took sannyasa and went to Jagannath Puri, He appointed Shri Vamsidas as the protector of Shrimati Vishnupriya devi. Shri Vamsidas established a Deity of Lord Gaurangadeva. Hare Krishna!
