Stambhasaṃyukta (स्तम्भसंयुक्त) refers to a “being endowed with (a thousand) columns”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.41 (“Description of the Altar-Structure”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] O great sage, tired of seeing the portrayal of yourself, you became engaged in seeing the other builds of Viśvakarman. You entered the great altar of Himavat, studded with various gems and decorated with gold pots and stumps of plantain trees. It had a thousand columns (sahasra-stambhasaṃyukta). It was wonderful. O sage, you were struck with surprise on seeing the altars. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
