Bijaya Dhananjaya Pur Sasan (also known as B.D.Pur, or previously as Tentulia Sasan) is a village/Grama Panchayat under Jagannath Prasad block of Ganjam district in Odisha, India.

History

King Dhananjaya Bhanja (forefather of Kabi Samrat Upendra Bhanja) donated a small piece of land to a group of Brahmin so they could assist him in worshiping the deities of the kingdom, as well as to look after the medical needs of the community. The Tripathy family were engaged as Kaviraj (practitioners of Ayurveda) and everyone else was engaged as priests. After the advent of democracy in India, most of the priests took teaching jobs. At present almost half the people in the village make their living through teaching or intellectual jobs.
