Āmghāṭā

geographical name
a village in Godrumadvīpa also known as Āmraghāṭā. It is on the east side of the Gaṅgā, about midway between Svarūpa-gañja and Devapallī. Once while Śrīman Mahāprabhu was performing saṅkīrtana with His associates, He arrived at this place. After several hours of saṅkīrtana, the devotees’ hunger and thirst was aroused. Śrī Mahāprabhu planted a mango seed which immediately grew into a tree full of ripened mangoes, which had neither seeds nor skins. The mangoes were fragrant and their taste was sweeter than nectar. Śrīman Mahāprabhu and Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu relished those fruits along with Their associates. This place is thus known as Āmghāṭā, the place of mangoes
