next verse (28) informs us that Tripurantaka afterwards bathed in the "waters of the
Reva which are tossing among the rocks of the Vindhya mountains that are hallowed by the
traces of Agastya's footsteps.
From the Narmada he
turned to the Godavari (verse 29) and visited Tryambaka, i.e. Trimbak near Nasik. Still
continuing to travel southwards, the pilgrim reached Rameshvaram and the bridge of Rama
(verse 30). Finally he returned to the north-west and came to Devapattana or Prabhasa,
where the river Sarasvati flows in to the ocean (verses 31-33).
There he received high honours from the chief temple priest
(verse 34). Here the illustrious temple priest (Ganda) Brihaspati, who is visibly the
husband of Uma (this phrase has a double sense; it means that the name of Brihaspati's
wife was Uma and that he was an incarnation of Shiva) made him an Arya and appointed him
as sixth Mahattara.
