Kanchan Gadiya

 

Kanchan Gadiya is close to Bhaja Soha Station. Within Kanchan Gadiya one can see the house of Shri Haridas Acarya, an associate of Mahaprabhu who was also called Vraja Haridas because he remained living in Vrindavan on the order of Mahaprabhu. He had two sons, Shridas and Shri Gokuldas, who remained in Kanchan Gadiya when their father went to Vrindavan. Haridas Acarya requested Shrinivas Acarya to initiate his two sons. Upon returning from Vrindavan, Shrinivas came to Kanchan Gadiya and gave Vaishnava diksa to both of them. Haridas Acarya left his body in Vrindavan and his two sons brought his remains here and built a samadhi.Here in Kanchan Gadiya is also the house of Shri Radha Ballavadas Mandal who translated the Vilap Kusumanjali of Shri Raghunath das Goswami. The house of Vrindavan Chattaraj, also a disciple of Shrinivas Acarya, is here as well. Also is the house of Narasimha Kaviraj, another disciple of Shrinivas Acarya and one of the eight poets called the Asta Kaviraj as. Finally, here is the house of Shri Raghunath Kar, still another disciple of Shrinivas Acarya, who also was one of the Asta Kavirai poets  Harihol
