Kāmapūra (कामपूर) refers to “satisfying the desires (of one’s devotees)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.20 (“The celebration of Gaṇeśa’s marriage”).—Accordingly, after Kārttikeya went to the Krauñca mountain: “[...] Pārvatī became grief-stricken by separation from Skanda. She piteously told her lord—‘O lord, let us go there’. Śiva went to that mountain partially for her happiness. He assumed the pleasing form of Jyotirliṅga named Mallikārjuna. Even now Śiva is seen there with Pārvatī satisfying the desires (kāmapūra) of his devotees. He is the goal of the good. [...]”.
