TEMPLE AND SACRED SITES OF KAMARUPA

Kamarupa has often been used to mean area in the eastern part of the subcontinent. The boundaries of Kamarupa are clearly mentioned in the Puranas and the Tantra literature. The Kalika Purana mentions that Kamarupa was triangular in shape and extends towards the east to the Karatoya River and bounder by the Dikkaravashini in the east. On the other hand the Yogini Tantra divides the Kamarupa into three different parts named Ratnapitha, Bhadrapitha, Saumarapitha and Kamapitha.
