Siṅgaraura is another name for Śṛṅgaverapura, which is the name of a city mentioned in the Rāmacaritamānasa chapter two (Ayodhya-kāṇḍa). The site of the ancient Śṛṅgaverapura is marked by a village bearing the same name under the modernized form ‘Singraur’ 22 miles to the north-west of Allahabad. The Gaṅgā has changed its course and only a small branch now flows through the old channel.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

Singaraura, the headquarters of the Pattala, still exists under the same name on the left bank of the Ganga at a distance of 35 km northwest from Allahabad. A metalled road leading to the northeast for about 2 km from the place joins the Allahabad-Lucknow Highway at Mansurabad. The present name of Singraur is a distorted form of Sringaverapura, an ancient town mentioned in early literature, the site of which is marked by a great mound on the left bank of the Ganga.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
