Durvaśana (दुर्वशन).—According to Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta, Madya-lila 9.197, “After thus assuring the brāhmaṇa, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu proceeded further into southern India and finally arrived at Durvaśana, where He bathed in the river Kṛtamālā. At Durvaśana Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu visited the temple of Lord Rāmacandra, and on the hill known as Mahendra-śaila He saw Lord Paraśurāma”.

In Durvaśana, or Darbhaśayana, seven miles east of Ramnad, there is a temple of Lord Rāmacandra overlooking the ocean. The hill known as Mahendra-śaila is near Tirunelveli, and at the end of this hill is a city known as Tiruchendurḍ. West of Mahendra-śaila is the territory of Tribāṅkura. There is mention of Mahendra-śaila in the Rāmāyaṇa.
