Brahmāṇḍamaṇḍapa (ब्रह्माण्डमण्डप) refers to the “cosmic hall” where Viṣṇu was coronated by Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.25. Accordingly as Rāma narrated to Satī:—“[...] in an auspicious hour, the great lord [Śiva] made Viṣṇu sit on the exquisite throne and delightedly decorated him in every way. A beautiful coronet was fixed on Viṣṇu and the auspicious holy thread was tied to his waist. He was then coronated by lord Śiva in the Cosmic Hall (brahmāṇḍamaṇḍapa). What was His own and even non-transferable, Śiva the independent and favourably disposed to His devotees, conferred on Viṣṇu and eulogised him”.
