Campahaṭṭa

geographical name (Campahaṭṭa, Cāmpāhāṭī or Campakahaṭṭa)
a place in the southwest part of Rtudvīpa, also known as Cāmpāhāṭī. It was formerly known as Campakahaṭṭa because there was a market (haṭṭa) there that sold the flowers of the Campaka trees that grow profusely in this area. It is considered non-different from the Khadiravana forest of Vṛndāvana. The great poet Jayadeva Gosvāmī wrote the Gīta-govinda while residing in Campahaṭṭa
