Akṣyatṛtīyā (अक्ष्यतृतीया) is the name of a festival that once existed in ancient Kashmir (Kaśmīra) as mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—Akṣyatṛtīyā proceeds as folows: Barley-grains were produced, Kṛta age was created and the river Gaṅgā was brought down on the earth from Brahmaloka, on the bright 3rd of Vaiśākha, so the worship of Viṣṇu with barley and that of the Gaṇgā, specially on the bank of the Sindhu, is prescribed on this day.
