The story is told at great length in the Devi Mahatmya - literally, 'Glory of the Great Goddess', also referred as Durga Saptashati - a text embedded inside 'Markandeya Purana'. The folio of is from a dispersed manuscript of the Devi Mahatmya.
The Purana describes that the Mount Meru is surrounded by four other mountains as it's supports- Suparshva, Kumud, Mandara, and Mermandara. On these four mountain ranges stand four great trees- the Mango, the Jambu, the Kadamb, and the Banyan. The manuscript of the Anandi Patan has an extraordinarily painted leaf with a picture of Mount Meru on it.
Mirroring the activities and elements of the human and animal world with colorful geometrical patterns, the cow dung coated mud walls of these houses reflect the ancient tradition of elaborate wall painting or Bhitti Chitra practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar and the adjoining parts of Tarai in Nepal.
Coming from the Pahari-Basholi school, this painting by Devidasa of Nurpur dates back to the seventeenth century and is currently on display at Cleveland Museum of Art.
