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. [...]”.
