Śrīman Mahāprabhu, after taking sannyāsa, started His journey towards Nīlācala from Śāntipura. He was walking through the bank of the Ganges and reached this Āṭisārā village where He spent one night in the house of Śrī Ananta Ācārya. Mahāprabhu spent the whole night there by speaking about the topics of Kṛṣṇa. Next day He started from here towards Chatrabhoga.

 

ŚĀSTRA PRAMĀṆA

This is described in Śrī Caitanya- bhāgavata (Antya- khaṇḍa, 2/51-52)-

sei āṭisārā-grāme mahā bhāgyavāna
āchena parama sādhu – śrī ananta nāma

rahilena āsi’ prabhu tāṅhāra ālaye
ki kahiba āra tāṅra bhāgya-samuccaye

One most fortunate saintly person named Śrī Ananta lived in Āṭisārā village. Mahāprabhu came and stayed in his house. How can I describe the limit of his good fortune?
