Significance on History and Hinduism
Trikuta is one of the twenty mountains surrounding Maha-Meru. The height is said in the Bhagavata Purana to be 10,000 yojanas, and the three peaks are iron, silver and gold. The mountain is believed to be[according to whom?] the second home of the divine goddess Durga. She was created with the power of the 3 goddesses to end evil, hence, the mountain is called Trikuta.
