Haṃsadvāra (हंसद्वार) is the name of a sacred spot mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—Haṃsadvāra is, according to the Nīlamata, near the Muṇḍapṛṣṭhagiri, but as Dr. V.S. Agrawala has pointed out, the term was used in ancient Indian literature for the mountain passes over which the swans from India flew to Tibet (Lipulekh) and to Central Asia (Hunza).
