Dānavāri (दानवारि) is the Sanskrit name of a deity presiding over Bāḍabāmukha, one of the sixty-eight places hosting a svāyambhuvaliṅga, which is one of the most sacred of liṅgas according to the Śaivāgamas. Alternatively, this deity could be Anala. The list of sixty-eight svāyambhuvaliṅgas and presiding deities (eg., Dānavāri) is found in the commentary on the Jirṇoddhāra-daśaka by Nigamajñānadeva. The word liṅga refers to a symbol used in the worship of Śiva and is used thoughout Śaiva literature, such as the sacred Āgamas.(Source): Wisdom Library: Śaivism
