The Fount of Indian Culture

By accident, Nandini, ;he sacred cow of Vasistha fell into it. When efforts to extricate it met with failure, Vasistha sought the bell of Himalaya to lift the cow and to fill up that deep fissure. But the later declined on the ground that the place was uninhabitable. Thereupon, Vasistha promised to make the spot and the country adjacent, pure and habitation - worthy. Pleased with it, Himalaya sent his son Arbuda on this work. At the behest of his father, Arbuda closed the hole, and hence it was called the Arbuda kshetra. Vasistha built an asram with a temple of Maheswar in it and it is now called the Achaleswar shrine. He caused a. big fire-pit made in his hermitage for his nithya naimithika rituals. It is believed that the four Rajaput clans - Agnikula Kshatrias emerged from this sacrificial pit, who ruled the present Rajasthan and its surrounding countries for centuries with an enviable record of unparalleled glory and valour, among the rulers of our sacred land. Vishnu Purana also embodies a certain amount of proof of the glorious past of this hill.
