maru In the plural, is mentioned in the Taittirīya Aranyaka, as the utkara (‘mound of earth thrown up ’ from the excavation of the altar) of Kurukçetra. This seems to mean that the Maru deserts (the later Maru-sthala) were so called because they stood to the ‘altar,’ Kurukṣetra, in the same relation as the waste earth of the utkara to the altar at the sacrifice.
