India history and geography

Source: Shodhganga: Cultural history as g leaned from kathasaritsagara

Atimukta is the name of a flower (pushpa) mentioned in the Kathasaritsagara by Somadeva (10th century A.D).

Somadeva mentions many rich forests, gardens, various trees, creepers medicinal and flowering plants (e.g., Atimukta) and fruit-bearing trees in the Kathasaritsagara. Travel through the thick, high, impregnable and extensive Vindhya forest is a typical feature of many travel-stories. Somadeva’s writing more or less reflects the life of the people of Northern India during the 11th century. His Kathasaritsagara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Atimukta, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravahanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyadharas (celestial beings).
