Excerpts from Uttara Ramayana about Hell (Yama Loka) near South Pole

Ravana decided to attack in all directions and conquer all corners of the world.
He said the same to Narada and started preparing for his travel.
Holy sage Narada went to Yama, the lord of Naraka Loka (Hell) and informed him the same.
O king of the forefathers, the night-stalker named Ravana is coming to subdue you by his prowess, even though you are hard to defeat. For this reason I have hurriedly come, O lord. I now wonder what will happen to you who hold the rod of chastisement‘.
While he was talking, they both saw from afar Ravana’s aerial vehicle arriving and shining like the sun. Dispelling the darkness of that entire white region with the effulgence of the Pushpaka, the mighty Ravana drew near.
Here, Ravana saw souls suffering for their sins and few enjoying comforts for their pious deeds.
By his prowess, the mighty Ravana forcefully liberated all those who were being tortured for their sinful activities. Those living beings who were liberated by Ravana enjoyed for some time a happiness that was unexpected and unimaginable.

While the mighty Ravana was freeing the deceased, their guards angrily rushed upon him. A great clamor arouse from all directions as Yama’s heroic warriors rushed to the scene. Hundreds and thousands of warriors assaulted the Pushpaka with spears, iron bars, pikes, bludgeons, javelins and iron clubs. Like a swarm of bees, they quickly demolished the seats, compartments, platforms and archways of the Pushpaka. Although the Pushpaka vehicle, which was a transport for the gods, was being assaulted, it remained intact by the power of Lord Brahma. The great Yama’s army was huge and incalculable. There were hundreds and thousands of soldiers who formed the advance troops. Thereafter Ravana and his ministers fought according to their will and strength with hundreds of trees, mountains and buildings.

Although their limbs were wounded with all kinds of weapons and were smeared with blood, Ravana’s ministers put up a great fright. The ministers of Yama and Ravana struck each other fiercely with weapons. Then Yama’s mighty fighters abandoned Ravana’s ministers and rushed upon Ravana himself with a shower of pikes. With his limbs lacerated by the blows of weapons and smeared with blood, the lord of the rakshasas seated in the Pushpaka looked like a blossoming ashoka tree. The mighty Ravana counterattacked by hurling pikes, clubs, spears, jevelins, iron clubs, arrows, bludgeons, mountain peaks and trees by dint of his ability to discharge mystic weapons. That fearsome shower of trees, boulders and weapons fell upon Yama’s troops stationed on the ground.

After defeating Yama’s soldiers, Ravana roared loudly.
When Yama heard it, he himself decided to enter the war.
Seeing Ravana gaining upperhand in the battle, an extremely angered personification of death asked Yama to leave Ravana to him.
But Yama wanted to finish the battle himself and as he was preparing to strike Ravana with his rod, Lord Brahma personally appeared there and reminded of the boons given to Ravana.
Only a human can defeat Ravana and no one else.
Respecting Brahma’s boon, Yama left the battlefield.

After defeating Yama at south pole, Ravana to go to the nether region called Rasatala, and entered the ocean, which is inhabited by daiyas and nagas and well-protected by Varuna.
