Shri Keshava Bharati, the sannyasa guru of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprbhu, was born here. After taking sannyasa, Keshava Bharati lived at first in Karduhe and then at Katwa in an ashram that he established. Shri Vrindavan das Thakur wrote the extremely sweet and intimate Shri Chaitanya Bhagavata here and also established the Deities of Nitai Gauranga. This was also the place of Vrindavan das Thakur's maternal grandparents. A hand written copy of Shrimad-Bhagavatam in which Mahaprabhu has written in His own hand the meanings of a few words is still kept here. Hare Krishna!
