Agastyakūṭa (अगस्त्यकूट).—This is the sacred mount where the sage, Agastya, sat and did penance during his sojourn in the southern parts of India. In the Kiṣkindhā Kāṇḍa of Vālmīki Rāmāyaṇa we find King Sugrīva commanding that all his soldiers going in search of Sītā should pay homage to the sage Agastya.Source: archive.org: Puranic Encyclopaedia
