  • A city which has gained great importance in all the Purāṇas of India.
    1) Origin.
    There was once a King named Kuśa in the Pūru dynasty. (For genealogy see under ‘Gādhi’). This Kuśa begot of his wife, Vaidarbhī, four sons named Kuśāmba, Kuśanābha, Asūrtarajasa and Vasu. Each of them built a city of his own and started his rule there. Girivraja is the magnificent city built by Vasu. [Sarga 32, Bāla Kāṇḍa, Vālmīki Rāmāyaṇa].
    2) Jarāsandha's rule.
    Vasu had a son named Bṛhaḍratha and Jarāsandha was the son of Bṛhadratha. During the rule of Jarāsandha Girivraja became glorious like Nandanodyāna. This city lying in the midst of five mountains was the seat of prosperity then. [Chapter 21, Sabhā Parva]. Jarāsandha kept many mighty kings of his time, as prisoners in this city. Unable to control his wrath against Kṛṣṇa once he hurled his mace a hundred times and threw it from Girivraja to Mathurā. Śrī Kṛṣṇa, Bhīmasena and Arjuna entered Girivraja in disguise and engaging Jarāsandha in a duel killed him and crowned his son as King. [Chapter 24, Sabhā Parva]. Once King Duṁdhumāra abandoning the gifts offered by the devas came and slept in Girivraja. [Śloka 39, Chapter 6, Anuśāsana Parva].
