Parvata Astra

Parvata means "mountain" and Parvata Astra is a celestial weapon in Hindu mythology that creates mountains. Arjuna used the Parvata Astra during a demonstration of skill in the Mahabharata, Adi Parva section 137. (Note: In the text it is spelled Parvatya.)

"By the Agneya weapon, he created fire, and by the Varuna weapon he created water, by the Vayavya weapon, he created air, and by the Parjanya weapon he created clouds. And by the Bhauma weapon, he created land, and by the Parvatya weapon, he brought mountains into being. By the Antardhana weapon all these were made to disappear."
