Not open for further replies.
Saint Arunagirinatha was born in the village Mullundrum known as Praudhadeva Raya Puram. He came from a family of Gauda Brahmins originally from Varendra village in Rajashahi district in Bangladesh. They came some time during the 11th century. Arunagirinatha lived during the 15th century.

The family was known by the general name "Dindima Kavi", as they had the privilege of Dindima (a type of drum) played when they appeared in public.

Arunagirinatha was one of the greatest composers of India.
