Brahmāṇḍapurāṇa (ब्रह्माण्डपुराण) refers to one of the eighteen Major Puranas according to the Matsyapurāṇa and other traditional lists of Puranic literature: a category of ancient Sanskrit texts which gives a huge contribution in the development of Indian literature.—The lists of eighteen Mahāpurāṇas (e.g., brahmāṇḍapurāṇa) and eighteen Upapurāṇas are not same everywhere, as some names are dropped in some references whereas some are included in others. It can be noticed that, except the Vāyuapurāṇa and the Śivapurāṇa, the names of the Mahāpurāṇas are similar in almost all the Purāṇas.
