THE TEMPLES IN BIRBHUM

He stopped and pondering on the subject went away to have his bath. In the mean while the Lord Krishna assumed theperson of the poet Jayadeva and came to his house and had a meal served out by Padmavati and then he wrote out and completed the verse.  Padmavati little knowing of the trick that had been played by the Lord himself sat down to eat the food left on the plate. At this time the poet Jayadeva returned and was astonished to find Padmavati partaking the food because as a modest Hindu wife she never dined before her husband.

The wife was also equally astonished to find her husband returning a second time after a bath and asked him what he meant by this.Jayadeva was curious and the wife narrated what had happened. Both went to look at the poem which Jayadeva hadbeen writing and found that the verse which he had wanted to put down but could not bring himself up to it had been written in its proper place.Both the devotees Jayadeva and Padmavati were convinced that the Lord himself had come and had written the verse in order to relieve Jayadeva of his difficulty.

This is the famous verse:

Geet Govinda, a gem of Sanskrit lyrical poem in praise of Radhika and Krishna and various manifestations of their love and Lila written as late as the 12th century A.D. is still refreshingly fresh. The poet's words are so picturesque and the feelings are so human that one who listens melts in
the environs raised by the words.

Regarding the Radha Vinod temple on the side of the poet's house, the Annual Report of the Archaeological Survey runs thus: "The existing temple here is supposed to have been erected in the seventeenth century on the site of no mean value from the architectural point of view.
