Parvatāgra (पर्वताग्र) refers to the “summit of a mountain”, according to Śivapurāṇa 1.15. Accordingly, regarding the benefit in the rites of Devayajña:—“[...] the bank of a holy tank, the bank of an ordinary river, the bank of a holy river and the banks of the seven holy Gaṅgās are each of ten times more benefit than the previous [...] The shores of the sea are of ten times more benefit than the previous. The summit of a mountain (parvatāgra) is of ten times more benefit than the shores of the sea”.
