Pabhāsa-tīrtha is mentioned in one of the Karle cave inscriptions. The name is given as Prabhāsatīrtha in Nasik cave inscription of the time of Nahapāna. The latter inscription records the donations given to the Brāhmaṇas by Usavadāta at this holy place. The place is the same as Prabhāsa or Somanātha-pattana in Kathiawar, where the epic legend locates the death of Lord Kṛṣṇa. It is frequently mentioned in the Purāṇas.
