JAGARNATHPUR

In this connection it has to be mentioned that the cult of Vaishnavism has had a deep and significant impact on the people of Ranchi district from the days of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, in the 15th century, when that great Vaishnavite apostle of Bengal had traveled through parts of Ranchi district on his way to Puri to offer worship there to Lord Jagarnath.

Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita and a host of other Vaishnava works describe the travels of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu through Jharkhand after crossing the Damodar River near Bankura. Wending his way along portions of the Bundu and Tamar thanas and Ranchi, he passed through Chaibasa and then, following the old Pilgrim road via Keonjhar and Jaipur he eventually reached Puri.

Even today the people of Bundu and Tamar and other parts of Ranchi district refer to the khol, a necessary musical accompaniment for the kirtan as such, reverentially as srikhol. Vaishnavism has such a hold here that there am many families of this area who declare themselves as Vaishnavas by caste. Even many of the tribals are Kanthidharis owing to the direct impact of the cult of Vaishnavism.
