Caitrakaccha (चैत्रकच्छ):—Sanskrit name for one of the twenty-four sacred sites of the Sūryamaṇḍala, the first maṇḍala of the Khecarīcakra, according to the kubjikāmata-tantra. It is also known as Bhṛgunagara in the Ṣaṭsāhasraṭippanī, and as Nagara in the Śrīmatottara-tantra. The Khecarīcakra is the fifth and final cakra located just above the head. Each one of these holy sites (pītha) is presided over by a particular Khecarī (‘sky-goddess’). This Caitrakaccha-pītha is connected with the goddess Bimbakacchapā.
