Pātālaloka (पाताललोक) is another name for Nāgaloka which refers to the “residence of the Snakes”, according to the Varāha-purāṇa (chapter 24).—Nāgaloka is located in the endless bowels of the earth with countless palaces, houses and towers. It is also known as pātālaloka. Lord Brahmā allocated specific regions for snakes to dwell, such as Pātāla, Vitala and Harmya. Nāgas are referred to as a class of semi-divine beings with bodies half-man and half-snake and grouped along with Kinnaras, Yakṣas, Gandharvas etc. Etymologicaly, the word nāga could be derived from naga meaning mountain.

The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
