SOMANATH

SOURCES

Almost all Puranas, particularly Vamana Purana, Kurma Purana, Skanda Purana Garuda Purana, Padma Purana, Vishnu Purana, Bhavishya Purana, and Matsya Purana; Bhagavatas like Devi Bhagavata and Srimad . Bhagavata, together with the Mahabharatha enshrine elaborate accounts of this, and each seems vying with the other in eulogizing the glory of this kshetra. It is dedicated of course to Lord Siva, but in this self same kshetra many sports of Yadavas with Sri Krishna as the protagonist are played. Of all, the Skanda Purana in its Prabhasa Khanda has dealt at length, highlighting many miracles and mysteries of this place. Besides including its topography, geology, flora and fauna, it
narrates the story of installation of the Adi jyotirlinga vividly. The Mahabharata in Salya Parva embodies an interesting account of the penance of Soma, the Moon-god and installation of linga by Brahma.
