Ānartapura (आनर्तपुर).—On account of separate occurence of Ānandapura in Maitraka records, Ānartapura should be regarded as a locality different from Ānandapura. It may be identical with Dwarkā (Dvarkā), ancient Kuśasthalī mentioned in the Mahābhārata as capital of the country called Ānarta. In most of the Maitraka records, it is stated thatthe family of the donee hailed from Ānartapura. Sometimes, the donee belonged to the Caturvedin family of Ānartapura.
