Kanchada Pada,located on the bank of the Ganges, was the residence of Shri Vasudeva Datta, a very intimate associate of Mahaprabhu and the brother of Mukunda Datta, also an intimate associate of Mahaprabhu. Both Shri Vasudeva Datta and his brother were expert kirtan singers. When Mahaprabhu left for Jagannath Puri, Vasudeva Datta left this place to reside with Mahaprabhu in Puri. Shivananda Sen's wife's parents were also from this village. In this village, on a street named Krishnapur, one can even today have darshan of a Deity called Krishna Raya which was established by Kavikarnapur. Har Krishna!
