विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[7] ने लेख किया है ...1. ब्रह्मकुंड (AS, p.649) : मद्रास (तमिलनाडु) में रामेश्वरम् की 5 मील की परिक्रमा में यह प्राचीन पुण्य स्थल है. यहां महिषमर्दिनी का मंदिर भी है.

2. ब्रह्मकुंड (AS, p.649) = ब्रमसर = मानसरोवर. कालिका पुराण में ब्रह्मपुत्र या लौहित्य का उद्भव ब्रह्मकुंड से माना गया है-- 'ब्रह्मकुंडात् सुत: सोअथ कासारे लोहिता ह्वये, कैलासोपत्यकायांतुन्यपत् ब्रमण: सुत:' (देखें लौहित्य). कालिदास ने सरयू का उद्गम ब्रमसर (=मानसरोवर) से माना है जो कालिका पुराण का ब्रह्मकुंड ही है. सरयू तथा लौहित्य (ब्रह्मपुत्र) दोनों ही मानसरोवर से निकलती हैं. (देखें सरयू)
