Krauncha is the name of a passageway situated close to the Himalayas
. The legend affirms the passage Krauncha have been opened by Parasurama
with his arrows to make a way from Kailasa to the southwards.
The Vayu Purana records that Krauncha is the splitting of the mountain to Kartikeya. Lord Indra
had a dispute about their respective powers, and agreed to decide it by running a race round the mountain. They disagreed as to the result, and therefore appealed to the mountain, who wrongly decided to help Indra.
