Suśobhita (सुशोभित) refers to “shining beautifully” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.38 (“Description of the dais or maṇḍapa”).—Accordingly, as Himavat prepared the wedding of Menā and Śiva: “[...] Chariots were driven by charioteers, other vehicles by other drivers. There were foot-soldiers too. All of them were artificial. O sage, Viśvakarman was so delighted that he made all these things to fascinate the visiting dignitaries, the gods and the sages. O sage, the statue of Nandin, at the portals, of crystalline purity and brilliance, was a prototype of the real Nandin. Above that there was the celestial chariot Puṣpaka decorated with sprouts. It shone with gods represented therein [, suśobhita ?]. [...]”.
