Kāntipurī (कान्तिपुरी).—Padhavali is very close to Kāntipurī (Kutwar) and according to tradition Padhavali and Kutwar once formed part of the same city. Thus, it can be said that the flourishing days of Padhavali were contemporary with those of Kutwar or ancient Kāntipurī, one of the three capitals of the Nāgas who ruled over this part of the country in the 3rd and 4th centuries A.D.
