I think Demon Mahisha who was killed by goddess Durga is a character of Markendya Purana.

The Markandeya Puran is one of the Puranas that lacks a sectarian presentation of ideas in favour of any particular god.

Brahma Puran has 60 of its chapters dedicated to the description of geography, holy sites of Godavari River region, places in and around modern Odisha and the tributaries of Chambal River in Rajasthan.
