Skandapurāṇa (Skandapurana) informs us of a different Agastyatīrtha (Agastyatirtha) which is located on the southern part of Aruṇādri (the Aruna Mountains). Aruṇādri or Arunācala lies to the west of Kailāsa (Mount Kailas). Therefore, this Agastyatīrtha lies on the bordering areas of northern India.It is said that a person who takes a holy dip at this place of pilgrimage acquires the knowledge of all languages. Agastya appears at this place of pilgrimage every month, especially in the month of Bhādra (Bhadra; the lunar month in Indian calendar stretching from mid-August to mid-September). Whether the rise of the Agastya star in the month of Bhādra symbolizes the special appearance of Agastya at this place of pilgrimage is a subject of interest to the scholars.
