Ārāma (Arama) is a kind of artificial park or orchard. In Purāṇa (Purana), among the acts of social benefience –like the digging of a pond and so on, the establishment of ārāma (Arama) was also an act of virtue, to be performed by a king. The procedure of the foundation of ārāma, as mentioned in Purāṇa, has meticulously been written down in the Smṛtiśāstra (Smritisastra) of the later ages. While building the Tripuradurga (Castle of Tripura), Mayadānava (Mayadanava; a Demon called Maya) planned to build up ārāma inside the castle, along with lakes and ponds. If someone forcibly takes possession of an established ārāma, the urusrper has to be punished. If someone destroys such an orchard-park by fire, the offense is to be redressed with narakavāsa (narakavasa, staying in the hell in afterlife).
