Champaran, formerly known as Champajhar, is a village in Raipur district, 60 km from the state capital via Arang. The village is identified with Champaranya and therefore has religious significance as the birthplace of the Saint Vallabhacharya, the reformer and founder of the Vallabh sect. A handsome temple has been constructed in his honour. Near this temple is a temple of Champakeshwara Mahadeva.
