The word Tripura (त्रिपुर ) means three cities or three worlds, Sundari (सुन्दरी) means beautiful woman. Tripura Sundari means the most beautiful woman in the three worlds.

The Tripura Upanishad places the goddess Tripura Sundari as the ultimate Shakti (energy, power) of the universe. She is described as the supreme consciousness, above Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
She rules over three cities, three paths children of the universe. a, ka, and tha , fully present. She is present in these letters. She is ageless, birth less, the greatest and she is the glory of all gods.
