|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 9: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu's Travels to the Holy Places|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 9.66
sva-prabhāve loka-sabāra karāñā vismaya
pānā-nṛsiḿhe āilā prabhu dayā-maya
sva-prabhāve — by His own influence; loka-sabāra — of all the people; karāñā — inducing; vismaya — astonishment; pānā-nṛsiḿhe — to the Lord named Pānā-nṛsiḿha; āilā — came; prabhu — Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; dayā-maya — the most merciful.
Everywhere Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu went, His influence astonished everyone. He next arrived at the temple of Pānā-nṛsiḿha. The Lord is so merciful.
Pānā-nṛsiḿha, or Pānākal-narasiḿha, is located in the district of Krishna, in the hills known as Mańgalagiri, about seven miles from a city known as Vijayawada. One must climb six hundred steps to reach the temple. It is said that when the Lord is offered food with syrup here, He does not take more than half. Within this temple is a conchshell presented by the late king of Tanjore, and it is said that this shell was used by Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself. During the month of March, a great fair takes place in this temple.
