Vaikuṇṭhadhāma (वैकुण्ठधाम) is the name of a world situated above Shivaloka.—Above this Brahma Loka is situated the Siva Loka, all the dwellers whereof are like so many different Sivas in form and appearance. Above, this again, is the Vaikuntha dhama, which is inhabited by people resembling the great Lord Hari in every respect. Above the Vaikuntha dhama is the Durga Loka in which every woman is a model of beauty and splendour, and a bestower of benefits.
