Rajapura (Kamboja)

Rajapura or Rajapuram was the capital of the ancient Kamboja Kingdom [1][2][3][4][5] mentioned in the Mahabharata. Karna led a war expedition against the Kamboja and some other tribes of the Uttarapatha a little time before the Kurukshetra war i.e. Karana Rajapuram gatva Kamboja Nirjitastvaya.[6] The Chinese pilgrim Xuanzang who travelled to India in the 7th century refers to Hoshepulo which has been identified as Rajapura of Sanskrit tradition by Watters and others.[7][8][9]
