India history and geography
Vijayāmahāpurī (विजयामहापुरी) or simply Vijayāpurī is the name of an ancient city of the Ikshvaku kings, as depicted in the Kathās (narrative poems) such as Uddyotanasūri in his 8th-century Kuvalayamālā (a Prakrit Campū, similar to Kāvya poetry).—Page 135.6: There is a reference to Vijayā Mahāpurī which was situated on the sea shore and the same as Nagarjuna Kunda, the famous capital of the Ikshvaku kings as stated in their inscriptions. It seems to be a historical fact that the monument of Vijayāpurī stood intact and the place enjoyed wide celebrity. The leader of the caravan was one Vaiśramaṇadatta. There follows (lines 27 f.) a description of the attack on the Sārtha and its plunder by wild Bhillas.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
