Bekeljati was also known as Mpu Modin.

His father was Mpu Kuwung, his grandfather Mpu Manca, his great grandfather Mpu Marcukunda.

His descendants were (Mpu) Wangsa, Wanagati, Surowongso, Joko Pritut, Kyai Anjir. His line appears to have finished with Kyai Anjir.

Bekeljati was a Tuban Mpu who supposedly lived around 1500. He converted from Hindu to Islam under the instruction of Sunan Bonang.
