History

कोलाहलगिरि

विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[1] ने लेख किया है ... कोलाहलगिरि (AS, p.238) मालवा और बुंदेलखंड को अलग करने वाली पर्वतमाला का नाम है, जो चंदेरी के पास स्थित है।[2] विष्णुपुराण के अनुसार कोलाहलगिरि एक पर्वत का नाम है- 'सापि द्वितीय संप्राप्ते वीक्ष्य दिव्येन चक्षुषा, ज्ञात्वा श्रृगालं तंद्रष्टुं ययौ कोलाहलं गिरिम्' (विष्णुपुराण 3, 18, 72.)

कोलाहलगिरि का उपर्युक्त उल्लेख एक आख्यान के प्रसंग में है। वायुपुराण 1, 45 में भी कोलाहलगिरि का उल्लेख किया गया है। यह 'कोलाचल' या 'कोलगिरि' का भी रूपांतरित नाम हो सकता है। श्री नं. ला. डे के अनुसार इसका अभिज्ञान ब्रह्मयोनि पहाड़ी, गया (बिहार) से किया गया है।


In Mahabharata

Kolahala (कॊलाहल) (Mountain) is mentioned in Mahabharata (I.57.32)

Adi Parva, Mahabharata/ Book I Chapter 57 mentions Uparichara Vasu, conquered kingdom of Chedi and his sons planted kingdoms and towns. Kolahala (कॊलाहल) (Mountain) is mentioned in Mahabharata (I.57.32). [3].... And as the King (Vasu) coursed through the upper regions, he was called Uparichara. And by his capital flowed a river called Suktimati. And that river was once attacked by a life-endued mountain called Kolahala maddened by lust. And Vasu, beholding the foul attempt, struck the mountain with his foot. And by the indentation caused by Vasu's stamp, the river came out (of the embraces of Kolahala). But the mountain begat on the river two children that were twins. And the river, grateful to Vasu for his having set her free from Kolahala's embraces, gave them both to Vasu. And the son was made the generalissimo to his forces by Vasu, that best of royal sages and giver of wealth and punisher of enemies. And the daughter called Girika, was wedded by Vasu.
