Annapurna

In Hinduism, Annapurna is a goddess of fertility and agriculture and an avatar of Durgha.


The goddess has lent her name to the Himalayan mountain Annapurna, a 55-km-long massif[?] whose highest point, Annapurna I, stands at 8,091 m (26,538 ft), making it the 10th-highest summit in the world and one of the "eight-thousanders[?]".
