About Jajpur

Jajpur is popularly known as Biraja Khetra, which translates as "the place sacred to Goddess Biraja", Jajpur is situated on the right bank of the Baitarani River. The origin of the name of Jajpur is shrouded in mystery. Some scholars think that it is derived from the word Yajnapura, while other scholars opine that the name originated from Jajatipura. King Yajati of Somavansa was known to have made a great yajna called dasaswamedha at this place. For this, he brought 10,000 brahmins from North India and settled them in various Sasanas for which now we find a series of Brahmana Sasana villages in Jajpur area.

In ancient times Jajpur was called as Viraja or Parvati Khetra. At times it was also known as Baitarani Tirtha. Viraja Khetra finds mention in Sanskrit in the Mahabharata. The Puranic literatures refer to Viraja as Baitarani Tirtha, which was one of the famous tirthas of India.
