Arvuda is a Nāga (Naga; a Snake). From Sabhāparva (Sabhaparva) it is known that Arvuda Nāga lived in Girivrajapura (the city of Girivraja). However, later he perhaps settled in in land of Arvuda adjacent to the mountain Aravalli. In this connection, this land came to be known as the dwelling place of the Arvuda community, and the name of the Aravalli mountain, also known as the Arvuda mountain, can be justified.
