India history and geography
Kandarapura (कन्दरपुर) or Kṛṣṇapura is mentioned in the Mattepad Plates of Dāmodarvarman and the Chezarla inscription of Kandara’s grandson. Kandarapura was the capital of Kandara janapada. As suggested by D. C. Sircar, it may be identical with Chezarla in Narasaropet taluq of the Guntur district. There are more than seventy-eight shrines at Chezarla, and Kapoteśvara is the deity of the main temple there.
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.
