Poet Jayadeva's birthplace row setlled

Bengalis and the Oriyas have now come to an agreement over the birthplace of the 12th century Sanskrit poet Jayadeva immortalised by his magnum opus ‘Gitagovinda’. It has been conclusively proved that Kenduvilva in Puri is indeed the birthplace of the poet. A ‘sankirtan’ trip to Kenduvilva village is organised every year in collaboration with state culture department and ISKCON on the Akshay Trutiya day, believed to be the poet’s birthday.
