India history and geogprahy

Triraśmi (त्रिरश्मि) or Tiraṇhu is another mountain (parvata), which is associated with the Sahya mountain. Apart from the Sanskrit name Triraśmi, we find the Prakrit forms Tiraṇhu and Teraṇhu, used in the inscriptions. Uṣavadāta is said to have caused a cave to be made in Triraśmi hills, while the grand-mother of Vasiṣṭhiputra ŚrīPulumāyi donates the village Pisājipidaka, which lay on the South-west side on the mount Tiraṇhu. The inscriptions of Śrī Sadakaṇī and of the Ābhīra ruler Īśvarasena generally refer to the mendicants dwelling in some monastry on this mount. The Triraśmi mountain is identical with present Pāṇḍu-Leṇa hills, situated about three hundred feet above the road level at Nasik. As regards the name Triraśmi, Pandit Bhagvanlal has suggested that its pyramidal or triple fire-tongue shape was the origin of this name.

Triraśmi (त्रिरश्मि).—Of the geographical names which occur in the Nasik cave inscriptions of Īśvarasena, Triraśmi-parvata (or the three-rayed hill) is plainly identical with the Pāndu-lena hill where the epigraph is incised. Pandit Bhagvanlal has suggested that its pyramidal or triple fire-tongue shape was the origin of its name Triraśmi. Govardhana which was probably mentioned in line 8 is identical with the modern village Govardhan-Gangāpur on the right bank of the Godāvarī, about 6 miles west of Nasik. It is mentioned in four other inscriptions on the cave-hill and was, in ancient times, the head-quarters of a territorial division (āhāra) named after it.
