Girirāja (गिरिराज) refers to the “Himālaya”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.22. Accordingly as Śiva said to Sitā:—“[...] O my beloved, beautiful woman, clouds will not reach the place where I have to make an abode for you. [...] The honourable ladies of Himālaya’s [viz., Girirāja] harem will cause immense pleasure to your gracious Self. They will impart you useful instruction, though you need none, with pleasure every day”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
