Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Kupiteśvara (कुपितेश्वर) is the name of a Liṅga (symbolical manifestation of Śiva) that is associated with the Udakuṇḍa-tīrtha (a sacred bathing place). It represents the forty-seventh of the sixty-four siddhaliṅgas mentioned in the Nepalese Tyasaphu (a folding book or leporello). At each of these spots Śiva is manifest as a Liṅga. Each of these liṅgas (eg., Kupita-īśvara) has its own specific name, mantra, set of rituals and observances, auspicious time etc.
The auspiscious time for bathing near the Kupiteśvara-liṅga at the Udakuṇḍa-tīrtha is mentioned as “caitra-kṛṣṇa-tṛtīyā māgha-kṛṣṇa-caturdaśī” (latin: caitra-krishna-tritiya magha-krishna-caturdashi). This basically represents the recommended day for bathing there (snānadina).Source: Wisdom Library: Śaivism
