India history and geography

Source: Nilamata Purana: a cultural and literary study (history)

Sopur is the name of a village siuated near the confluence of the Sindhu and the Vitastā, mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—From the present confluence the river passes the village of Sambal. Thereafter, a small channel connects the Mānasa lake with it. Passing the villages of Uchakuṇḍal and Marakuṇḍal, the river enters the Volur lake and then comes out as an outflow of water of the lake at the south-west corner about two miles above the town of Sopur. About four miles below Sopur, the Vitastā receives the stream Pohur and after flowing about 14 miles further, it reaches the gorge of Bārāmūlā.
