Devakulyā (देवकुल्या) is the name of a river mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa that remains unidentified.—The Devakulyā has been mentioned along with the Vaitaraṇī and the Ṛṣikulyā in connection with the description of Gaṅgodbheda-tīrtha, but none of these three has yet been traced out in the vicinity of Beḍābrār which Stein identifies with Gaṅgodbheda tīrtha.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
