'pichaldā' paryanta sei yavana āila
mantreśvara — named Mantreśvara; duṣṭa-nade — at a dangerous spot in the river; pāra karāila — arranged to cross; pichaldā paryanta — up to the place named Pichaldā; sei — that; yavana — Muslim governor; āila — accompanied Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
The Muslim governor accompanied Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu past Mantreśvara. This place was very dangerous due to pirates. He took the Lord to a place named Pichaldā, which was near Mantreśvara.
The very wide mouth of the Ganges near present-day Diamond Harbor was called Mantreśvara. Through the Ganges, the boat entered the Rūpa-nārāyaṇa River and reached the village of Pichaldā. Pichaldā and Mantreśvara are located very close together. After passing Mantreśvara, the Muslim governor accompanied the Lord as far as Pichaldā.
