Ramanaka (Ramaniyaka)

posted in: English 0

An island near Dvaraka where, according to Chapter 38 of the Southern Text of Bharata, there was a forest.
It was in this island that Vinata, mother of Garuda and Kadru, mother of the nagas lived. Garuda, after freeing his mother from her slavery evicted the nagas from this island.
(Brahmanda Purana, Chapter 17).

Following the eviction, many of the prominent nagas lived in Patala. But, Kaliya, in fear of Garuda, lived in Kalindi (Yamuna). After his suppression by Sri Krsna Kaliya, with his family, as advised by Krsna returned to Ramanakam. (Bhagavata, 10 th Skandha).
