Roha (रोह) refers to “(having) ascended (the throne)”, according to the King Vatsarāja’s Pūjāstuti called the Kāmasiddhistuti (also Vāmakeśvarīstuti), guiding one through the worship of the Goddess Nityā.—Accordingly, “[...] I uninterruptedly bow to Nityā who has a form worthy of worship. She has ascended the shining throne (bhāsura-pīṭha-roha) made of the sun, moon, and fire. She holds in her hands a hook, a snare, arrows, and a bow, and carries the crescent moon on her crest. She is pure and clean, and her eyes, adorned with the tips of the locks of hair, are very beautiful. [...]”.
