There is a place called Sarai Aghat in Uttar Pradesh. 40 miles to the south west of his place and one mile to the north-west of Sankisa (former Sāṃkāśya) a site by the name of Agastya-āśrama exists. N.L. Dey refers to Alois Anton Fuhrer in this context. Fuhrer maintains that the name of the place Sarai Aghat in modern day Uttar Pradesh bears a connection with the Puranic sage Agastya. ‘Aghat’ or ‘Agahat’ is a crooked version of the word ‘Agastya’. The name of the great sage Agastya has become entwined with the name of this place, though in a transformed or degenerate state, only because of the fact that sage Agastya’s āśrama (ashrama; ‘abode’) was situated at this place.
