In the Virbani district about 20 miles south of Suri, on the banks of the Ajaya river, is Kendubilva, the place of Jayadeva Goswami. Jayadeva was a royal pandit in the court of King Laksman Sen. His most famous literary work is called Gita Govinda. In this book Jayadeva glorifies the incarnations of the Supreme Lord Krishna. Lord Chaitanya was extremely fond of hearing this Gita Govinda, and Svarupa Damodara and Mukunda would sing it to Him regularly during the Lords residence in Jagannath Puri. Haribol!
