Sarasvatītīrtha (सरस्वतीतीर्थ) is the name of a Tīrtha (sacred bathing place) that is associated with the Campakeśvara Liṅga (symbolical manifestation of Śiva). This place represents the thirteenth 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 has its own specific name, mantra, set of rituals and observances, auspicious time etc.

The auspiscious time for bathing at the Sarasvatī-tīrtha near the Campaka-īśvara-liṅga is mentioned as “dvādaśamāsayā pūrṇimā” (latin: dvadashamasaya purnima). This basically represents the recommended day for bathing there (snānadina).
