Divyarūpavat (दिव्यरूपवत्) refers to “being exquisite in form” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.38 (“Description of the dais or maṇḍapa”).—Accordingly, as Himavat prepared the wedding of Menā and Śiva: “[...] O celestial sage, of what avail is a long-drawn description? The gods were drawn by Viśvakarman as desired by Himavat. The Altar was erected by him with wonderful features, fascinating the gods and exquisite in form (divyarūpavat...divyarūpavān...sambhūto mahān...). On being commanded by the lord of mountains, the intelligent Viśvakarman created different abodes for the residence of the gods and others. Great couches of wonderful brilliance very cosy and exquisite were made by Viśvakarman for their sake. [...]”.
