Chakdah, which is in the district of Nadia, is the place of Shrila Mahesh Pandit. He was of the branch of Shri Nityananda Prabhu and one of the twelve cowherd boys who descended with Lord Balaram from Vraja. In Krishna lila he was Udar Gopal. Shri Pradyumna, the son of Lord Krishna, killed the demon Sambrasura here and this place is therefore also famous as Pradyumnanagar. Hare Krishna!
