Himachal Pradesh




At the time of sunrise, she gave birth to Anjaneya. Who was otherwise known as Hanuman. The child saw the beautiful rising sun in the sky and, thinking' it to be a ripe fruit, flew towards it and, not being able to bear the heat, fell back to the earth. The Purana therefore declares that, since Anjana Devi gave birth to her child on account of Tapascharya on this hill, the hill is called Anjanachala. The following verses from the Bralimanda Purana give us the legend, and tell us how the hill came to be named as Anjanachala.

There is also a reference in the Brahmanda Purana about how the hill came to be called as Vrishabhachala. Vrisbabhasura at the time of his death represented to the Lord that, since he died on the top of the hill, the hill should be named after him as Vrishabhachala, and the Lord also granted this boon. This legend is seen from the follow ing verses of Brahmanda Purana.
