According to one belief, after killing the demon rulers Tharaka, Shurapadmasura and their followers in a war, Lord Shanmukha reached Kumara Parvatha with his brother Ganesha and others. He was received by Indra and his followers. Indra being very happy prayed Lord Kumara Swamy to accept and marry his daughter Devasena for which the Lord readily agreed. The divine marriage took place on Margashira shudha shashti at Kumara Parvatha. Gods like Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra and many other deities assembled for the marriage and coronation ceremony of Shanmukha for which waters of several holy rivers were brought. With these waters of Mahabhisheka fell down to form a river which was later known by the popular name Kumaradhara.

In the 'Shankara Vijaya' Anandagiri observes that Sri Shankaracharya camped here for a few days during his religious expedition (Digvijaya). Shankaracharya referred to this place as 'Bhaje Kukke Lingam' in his 'Subrahmanya Bhujangaprayata Stotram'.

SERRAS GERAIS 🇧🇷⠀
O que eu mais tenho mostrado pra vocês ultimamente aqui são os lugares incríveis que as serras gerais tem pra visitar, porém eu nunca expliquei exatamente o que elas são. As serras gerais são a maior cadeia de serras do Brasil e nela compreende os municípios de Almas, Arraias, Aurora do Tocantins, Dianópolis, Lavandeira, Natividade, Pindorama, Rio da Conceição e Taguatinga. Cada município tem atrações incríveis e lugares maravilhosos para visitar. ⠀
💡O turismo nessa região está começando agora, então muitos pontos turísticos ainda estão vazios e algumas atrações não tem estrutura. Mas, vale lembrar a importância da preservação da natureza e consciência na hora de visitar esses atrativos, lembre-se sempre de levar o seu lixo embora. ⠀
🗓 A melhor época para viajar nessa região é de Maio até Setembro, que é na época da seca. ⠀
Vocês estão gostando de conhecer um pouco do Tocantins? Me conta aqui nos comentários, de todos os lugares que eu mostrei até agora, qual o seu favorito? 🌍

Be a sunflower and turn to the light wherever you are 🌻
I haven't introduced myself on here and have so many new faces showing up every day so figured I would let everyone know some facts about me:
1. I am a former collegiate athlete (and was also a three sport athlete in high school😬)
2. I love anything to do with food, especially finding new places to try new things - any recommendations, message me!
3. I love to travel - exploring places is a passion of mine and this COVID is really putting a damper on my travel plans - Ben and I were supposed to go to Europe for a month this summer😭
4. Health and fitness has become a huge part of my life - I want to continue to be that athlete throughout my life, but in a different way than I was before. And I love working with people who feel the same!
5. I am engaged to this amazing man above and am planning a wedding - if anyone has tips and tricks, they are greatly appreciated!😛
