A prosperous city situated on the flanks of Himālaya (the Himalayas). It was ruled by Aṅgada (Angada), the son of Lakṣmaṇa (Lakshmana) in Rāmāyaṇa (Ramayana). The entire settlement was known as Kārupatha (Karupatha) or Kārapatha (Karapatha).

During Rāmā’s (Rama’s) lifetime, Bharata took over the land of Kārupatha and established the city of Aṅgadīyā (Angadiya) according to Rāma’s wishes. After the city was set up, Rāma’s brother Lakṣmaṇa  accompanied Aṅgada (Angada) to the western part of India. He stayed in Aṅgadīyā for a year, helping his son Aṅgada settle down there; after that Lakṣmaṇa returned to Ayodhyā.
