Asthipura is a sacred tīrtha (tirtha; site of pilgrimage). It is located towards the west of Thāneśvara (Thaneswara) and towards the North of Aujasaghāṭa (Aujasaghaṭa). It is thought that the corpses of the warriors, dead in the war of Kurukṣetra (Kurukshetra), were put to fire in this Asthipura. It is further said that the Chinese traveller Xuanxang was shown a huge bone-structure in this place.
