Vallabhapur is the place of Shri Kasisvara Pandit and Shri Rudra Pandit, who were both associates of Mahaprabhu. The Deities Shri Radha Vallabha that were established by them are still worshiped. Kasiswara Pandit was a great devotee of Lord Chaitanya, and on His order, he has established and rendered service to the Deity of Gaura Govinda in Vrindavan. In Krishna lila he is Keli manjari.
Shri Rupa and Shri Sanatana were very affectionate towards Shri Kasiswara Pandit. He first lived in Jagannath Puri near Lord Chaitanya and never wanted to leave the Lord. But Lord Chaitanya gave him Gaura Govinda to worship and the Lord ordered him to take the Deities to Vrindavan and establish Them. So he left for Vraja. Shri Rudra Pandit was a cowherd boy named Varutaka in Krishna lila. Haribol!
