Ṛṣabha Hill is in southern Karṇāṭa, in the district of Madurai. Twelve miles north of Madurai City is a place called Ānāgaḍa-malaya-parvata, which is situated within the forest of Kuṭakācala. Within this forest Lord Ṛṣabhadeva burned Himself to ashes. Now this place is known as Palni Hill.Source: Prabhupada Books: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta
