About Book:

The present volume is one of the series of Ancient Indian Tradition and Mythology. The purest gems lie hidden in the bottom of the ocean or in the depth of rocks. One has to dive into the ocean or delve into the rocks to find them out. Similarly, the truth lies concealed in the language which with the passage of time has become obsolete. Man has to learn that language before he discovers that truth. But he has neither the means nor the leisure to embark on that course. This series of Ancient Indian Tradition and Mythology in English Translation helps him to acquire that knowledge of the truth. This present volume comprises section III--Reva-Khanda of Book V--Avantya Khanda of Skanda-Purana. The reader will come across a number of interesting legends in this section which comprises the stories of the greatness of two hundred and twenty-six tirthas, some of them are Sankarsana, Manmathesvara, Suvarnasila, Karanja, Kamada, Bhandari, Rohini, Cakra, Dhautapapa, Skanda, Angirasa, Koti, Ayonisambhava, Angaraka, Pandu, Trilocana, Indra, Kalhodi, Kambukesvara, Narmadesvara Ravi, Ayoniprabhava, Agni, Bhrkutesvara, Brahma, Devatirtha, Nagesvara, Adivaraha, Ramesvara, Siddhesvara, Ahalya, Karkatesvara, Sakra, Nandahrada, Tapesvara, Rukmini, Yojanesvara, Dvadasi, Asmahaka, and many others.
