It is nestled in the Rudra Himalaya, an integral part of the Himalayas and this region is called by many different names. such as Gandhamadana parvatha, Sumera parvatha, Pancha parvatha etc. The last is due to the fact of its having five sacred peaks, namely Rudra Himalaya. Vishnupuri. Brahmapuri, Udaygir-Kanha and Swargarohini. The celebrated Swargarohini trodden by the Pandava brothers and Droupadi to reach heaven is one among the five peaks mentioned in the Mahabharatha in detail. There lies in its vicinity the Mahapanth peak from which the pious people used to throw themselves to give up life to attaining of svargaprapti instantly. Around this Kshetra lie several holy spots and adorable niches relating to the life of His divine consort Uma. Among them that deserve mention are the Trijuginarayana-the venue of the Lord's marriage with Parvathi. Gourikund -the Punya Kasara. where Parvathi took bath after giving birth to Karthikeya; and Munda Katta Ganesh Mandir -the place where Maheshwar blessed Vinayaka with elephant head.
