Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu next arrived at the banks of the river Tapi. After bathing there, He went to Mahismati-pura. While there, He saw many holy places on the banks of the river Narmada.
PURPORT
The river Tapi is presently known as Tapti. The river's source is a mountain called Multai, and the river flows westward through the state of Saurastra and into the Arabian Sea. Mahismati-pura is mentioned in Mahabharata in connection with Sahadeva's victory. Sahadeva, the youngest brother of the Pandavas, conquered that part of the country. As stated in the Mahabharata:
tato ratnany upadaya
purim mahismatim yayau
tatra nilena rajna sa
cakre yuddham nararsabhah
"After acquiring jewels, Sahadeva went to the city of Mahismati, where he fought with a king called Nila."
