Śrīmūvāsa (श्रीमूवास) is the name of an ancient monastery, according to the historical poem Mūṣikavaṃśa by Atula dealing with the royal lineage of North Kerala in roughly 1000 verses.—Many places of North Kerala can be identified from the descriptions of Atula. [...] The poem makes two references to Śrīmūvāsa, which was either a Buddhist or Jaina monastery, as it is variously described as that belonging to Jina (12.96) and Sugata (14.25). The poem refers to king Vikramarāma rescuing the place from sea erosion by building a wall. Valabha II is said to have visited the shrine on its return from his unsuccessful expedition. The place has been identified as the sea shore west to modern Pallikkunu, mentioned as Vihāradurga in the poem.
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.
