Jambūmūla (जम्बूमूल) refers to the “foot of Jambū”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.22. Accordingly as Śiva said to Sitā:—“[...] O gentle lady, the clouds usually come only upto the foot of Kailāsa. They never go above it. The clouds never go above the mountain Sumeru. The clouds Puṣkara, Āvartaka etc. reach the foot of Jambu [viz., jambūmūla] (and return)”.
