The reader will come across a number of interesting legends in this part which comprises the stories: Groups of mothers cursed; Antecedents of Audumbari; Origin of Yaksma, Sankhaditya, Sankhatirtha, Sraddha, Matsyendranatha and eleven Rudras; Greataness of Savitri eight Nagara families, Gautamesvara, Ahalyesvara, Satanandesvara, Ratnaditya, and of many others; Description of tirthas; story of the daughter of Chandogya; The expiation of Paravasu; Purification of Nagara; Importance of Gaya Sraddha, Balamandana; Efficacy of Kuharavas-Sambaditya; Procedure of Ganapati worship and innumerable siuch other interesting legends are the attraction of this volume of the Skanda Purana.
