VADNAGAR

Myth

Vadnagar has also yielded an image of Bodhisattva dated back to the 3rd or 4th century AD. This image seems to be brought from Mathura to install in one of the Buddhist monasteries of the town.

HISTORY

Several ancient inscriptions and literary sources mention a town called Anarthapura" or "Anandapura", which is identified as the area in and around the present-day Vadnagar. The Mahabharata mentions the Anarta Kingdom in the norther part of the present-day Gujarat. The oldest Puranic legend about Gujarat is about a king named Anartha. The Junagadh rock inscription (150 CE) of Western Kshatrapa king Rudradaman I mentions a region called "Anartha" (meaningless) in the northern part of the present-day Gujarat. The Maitraka rulers of Vallabhi (505-648 CE) issued several land grants to the Brahmins of Anarthapura or Anandapura. The last mentions of Anarthapura appear in 7th century, when the Chinese traveler Xuanzang recorded his visit to O-Nan-To-Pu-Lo (Chinese form of "Anandapura"). The Harsola copper plates (949 CE) of the Paramara king record the grant of two villages in Gujarat area to the Nagar Brahmins originating from Anandapura. This Anandapura is also identified with Vadnagar, which is associated with the Nagar Brahmins. In 2009, the archaeologists discovered a 4 km long fortification near Vadnagar, which they believe could be the historical Anarthapura.

It is also said that Vadnagar was the earliest capital of Gujarat. [citation needed] Vadnagar's main town is located inside the walls of a fort which has 6 huge gates namely Arjun Bari, Nadiol, Amarthol, Ghaskol, Pithori and Amarthol in which Amarthol gate area is the oldest existing part of the town. The river Kapila used to flow through the town of Vadnagar
