Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

Prabhasa was a traditionally sacred place even in the days of Dharmaraj, the son of pandu. The Mahabharata refers to it again and again.1 It was well known as a holy place situated as it was-where the river Sarasvati flowed into the sea. It was also connected with Soma, the Moon God. Daksha had twenty-seven daughters, corresponding to twenty-seven   constellations, all married to Soma. Rohini, however, was the most beautiful of them, and Soma continued to live with her. His  other wives naturally complained to Daksha, who somehow induced him to be fair with them.
