A kingdom situated on the far west of India, flanked by mountains, and inundated by seven rivers.

In the Middle Ages, during the emergence of Islam, when Makran (a semi-desert coastal strip in Balochistan, in Pakistan and Iran, along the coast of the Persian Gulfand the Gulf of Oman) was under the occupation of the Arabs, Hinglaj gained popularity as a prosperous city (Hinglaj, one of the most revered sites of pilgrimage situated in the desert of modern day Balochistan in Pakistan). This Hinglaja was known as Aṅgaloka in the Purāṇic times. Matsyapurāṇa (Matsyapuran) calls the inhabitants of this state Aṅgalokya (Angalokya). During the age of Purāṇas, this state was home to non-Aryan (and therefore supposedly inferior) communities. And that is why Pulika, Kulatthu, Barbara, Yavana communities have been equated to Aṅgalokya’s.

Citing from Brahmaṇdapurāṇa (Brahmandapurana), N.L. Dey has called the inhabitants of Aṅgaloka Aṅgalaukika (Angalaukika)— kāmboja daradāścaiva barbara aṅgalaukika.
He has also likened them to Agalassians, as the historians coming with Alexander the Great did.

In ancient times, these people inhabited the area next to the land of the Śivi (Shibi) community, and geographically they lived along the lower region of the confluence of the rivers Hydaspes (modern Jhelam)and Acesines (modern Chenab).

Again, according to Subodh Kapoor, Aṅgaloka is the name of the region or country through which the river Sīta (Sita) (erstwhile Jaxartes and modern Syr Darya) flows.
