India history and geogprahy

Anantanāga (अनन्तनाग) is the name of a sacred spot mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—Ananta Nāga is the modern Islāmābād, also known as Anantanāga situated at the foot of the western extremity of the Mārtaṇḍa Plateau.

Anantanāga is a plain where the streams Sandran, Bring, Ārapath and Lidar meet to form the Vitasti river, mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—The Vitastā is the most important river of Kaśmīra to give the country the appellation ‘Vaitastika’. Its traditional source is the Nīlakuṇḍa called also Śūlaghāṭa and Vitastātra, but it is actually formed by the streams Sandran, Bring, Ārapath and Lidar meeting in the plain close to Anantanāga near the village Khanabal.
