|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 9: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's Travels to the Holy Places|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 9.197
tāńre āśvāsiyā prabhu karilā gamana
kṛtamālāya snāna kari āilā durvaśana
tāńre āśvāsiyā — assuring him; prabhu — Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; karilā gamana — departed; kṛtamālāya — in the river known as Kṛtamālā; snāna kari — bathing; āilā — came; durvaśana — to Durvaśana.
After thus assuring the brāhmaṇa, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu proceeded further into southern India and finally arrived at Durvaśana, where He bathed in the river Kṛtamālā.
Presently the Kṛtamālā River is known as the river Bhāgāi or Vaigai. This river has three tributaries, named Surulī, Varāha-nadī and Baṭṭilla-guṇḍu. The river Kṛtamālā is also mentioned in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (11.5.39) by the sage Karabhājana.
