India history and geogprahy
Gotamī (गोतमी) is the name of a river mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa. The Gotamī according to the Godāvarī Māhātmya flows from the Vārāhaparvata. Gomatī mentioned in v. 1255 of the Nīlamata is probably a misreading for Gotamī of v. 1152.(Source): archive.org: Nilamata Purana: a cultural and literary study (history)
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as 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.
