  • A mountain. It was on this mountain that some parts of Tripura, which was burnt by Śiva fell. From that time it became a holy place. In [Padma Purāṇa, Ādi Khaṇḍa, Chapter 15], we see the following passage about the benefits obtained by visiting this holy place. “One who goes to Amarakaṇṭaka mountain will enjoy the fourteen worlds for thirtyseven thousand crores of years. Afterwards he will be born on earth as King and reign as supreme emperor. A visit to Amarakaṇṭaka has ten times the value of an Aśvamedha. If one has Śiva's darśana there, one will attain Svarga. At the time of eclipse, all kinds of holy things converge towards Amarakaṇṭaka. Those who take their bath in Jvāleśvara in Amarakaṇṭaka will enter Svarga. The dead will have no rebirth. Those who renounce their lives at Jvāleśvara will live in Rudraloka till the time of great Deluge. In the valley of Amarakaṇṭaka and in the Tirtha live Devas known as Amaras and numerous Ṛṣis. Amarakaṇṭaka Kṣetra has a circumference of one yojana. (about eight miles).
