Udāracarita (उदारचरित) is the name of an ancient king from Putrapura, according to in the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 51. Accordingly, “... and in the morning the king [Pṛthvīrūpa] set out thence, and slowly advancing he reached that city of Putrapura on the shore of the sea. There he rested for a day, being entertained in becoming fashion by the king of that place, named Udāracarita. And he crossed the sea in ships supplied by him, and in eight days reached the isle of Muktipura”.

The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Udāracarita, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
