Mahabharat, Vana parva, tirtha-yatra parva https://www.wisdomlib.org/hinduism/book/the-mahabharata-third-book/d/doc7362.html. Says:

One should next proceed to the excellent tirtha of Brahma. Bathing there, a person, of the (three) inferior orders, obtaineth the status of a Brahmana, and if one be a Brahmana, his soul being purified from every sin, he attaineth to the highest state.

Do any other scriptures mention this particular property of Brahma tirtha?

The property of Brahma Tirtha : bestowing Brahman-hood after a holy bath has been mentioned in other scriptures such as Narada Purana.

In a conversation between Vasu and Mohini, Vasu tells about this special property of Brahma tirtha

By taking a holy dip in the Brahma Tirtha a man obtains Brahmana-hood. This is the greatest spot of Brahma. By going there none comes to grief.

[102, 65: Pilgrimage to Kuruksetra, Uttarabhaga, Narada Purana]

  • Where exactly is this place located? In Kurukshetra?
