Kenduli (केंदुली) is a village in Khurda district of Odisha. It is the birthplace of the Sanskrit lyricist, Jayadeva. Medieval Indian literature refer to this place by the name Kenduvilva.



Kenduli Sasan is a village on the banks of the Prachi River in Khurda district. It is only a few kms away from the holy city of Puri in Odisha, the seat of worship of the Hindu deity Jagannath.


Kenduli Sasan has recently been identified as the birthplace of Jayadeva, who was born into an Utkala Brahmin family. It is also where the poet spent his childhood, with his parents, Bhojadeva and Vamavati. Being called a Sasana (which in ancient Odisha referred to a seat of Brahmin learning), this village appears to have been a centre for Hindu literature during the 10th and 11th centuries. Jayadeva himself refers to his birthplace in the seventh song of the Gita Govinda as Kenduvilva, located by the sea: Kinduvilva samudra sambhava Rohini ramanena

Jaydev Kenduli

Jaydev Kenduli is a village and gram panchayat in Ilambazar community development block in Bolpur subdivision of Birbhum District in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is believed by many to be the birthplace of Jayadeva, an issue that is still debated by scholars.[1] It has developed as a religious centre with many temples and ashramas (hermitages).

Jaydev Kenduli had long been considered as a possible birthplace of the poet Jayadeva, who had composed Gita Govinda in Sanskrit. However, now there appears to be a consensus among scholars that Jayadeva was born in another place in Orissa bearing the same name, in Kenduli Sasan. He was believed to be the court poet of Raja Lakshman Sen, who ruled in the 12th–13th century.
