Vraja Rajpur, the place of Shridas Gadadhara, the associate of Shri Nityananda Prabhu, is within the district of Bankura. He first lived in Aryadeha on the banks of Ganges and then he came to Jagannath Puri to associate with Mahaprabhu. But when Mahaprabhu ordered Nityananda Prabhu to preach in Bengal, at that time Shridas went back with Nitai. He was powerful and influential. Once he went to a Muslim Kazi in his village and asked him to please chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord Krishna. By the mercy of Shridas, this Kazi became a Vaishnava. In Navadwip he used to take care of Sacimata devi and Vishnupriya devi. Even today there is a temple present in his house. His samadhi is in Aryadeha. Haribol!
