Bṛhallohita (बृहल्लोहित) is the name of a lake lying near the Candrabhāga mountain, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.5. Accordingly:—“[...] Vasiṣṭha saw the celestial lake full of Gaṇas and resembling the Mānasa lake. He saw Sandhyā too on its bank. With her seated on its bank, the lake, full of splendid lotuses, appeared like the sky in the dusk with the moon rising and the stars twinkling. On seeing her there full of noble feelings, the sage eagerly looked at the lake called Bṛhallohita. From the ridges of that big mountain which appeared like a big fort wall, the river Candrabhāgā rose and flowed towards the Southern sea. The sage saw that too. That river breaks the western wing of the mountain Candrabhāga even as Gaṅgā of the mountain Himālaya and flows towards the sea”.
