Mādhavacampū (माधवचम्पू) is the name of a work ascribed to Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century), also known as Rāmadeva or Vāmadeva, son of Rāghavendra.—The Mādhavacampū is a small kāvya of the campū type which was composed in prose and poetry. It consists of five chapters called ucchvāsas. The story runs thus—Kṛṣṇa went to the forest for hunting with his friend Kuvalayākṣa, there he saw a maiden named Kalāvati and they were attracted to each other, Kalāvati chose Kṛṣṇa as her husband amongst a number of invited suitors in the svayaṃvara ceremony and when they were coming back to Madhupura Kṛṣṇa had a fight with Rākṣasas and he got triumph over them, then Kṛṣṇa and Kalāvati started to stay in Madhupura but Kṛṣṇa had to move to Dvārakā as per Nārada’s request, Kalāvati sent a swan to Kṛṣṇa as her messenger to describe her distress of being alone. Finally Kṛṣṇa came back to Madhupura in pretention of demolishing the Rākṣasas. Cirañjīva maintains his originality in describing the incidents and characters of the Mādhavacampū.
