Brahmapuri is the city of Hindu God Brahma, the creator and the first of the trinity in Hinduism. It is believed that the city is located on the summit of Mount Meru. It is believed that the Holy River Ganga descended here and it gets divided into four streams here – namely Sita, Alakananda, Chakshu and Bhadra.

There are a total of nine cities atop the Mount Meru. Brahmapuri is also known as Brahma's Manovati.
