Commentary: Gauḍīya-bhāṣya by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura:
—“to protect”) refers to that which protects people below from the movement (or from the coming or falling) of the moon rays (and therefore in a broader sense from the sun rays also). It is also called cāṅdoyā, sāmiyānā, or maṇḍapa (a canopy, awning, or paṇḍala).
The word ṭāṅgāiyā (a local word; the infinite or participle verbs tānāna, ṭānāna, and ṭāṅgāna (?) are derived from the Sanskrit verb tan, “to spread,”) means “put up” or “tie up.”
