The Nilamata (Teachings of Nila’), is the oldest written record which deals with the holy legends regarding the origin of
Kashmir and its sacred places and moreover, one of the main sources of information used by Kalhana when writing his Raja tarangini.
Ved Kumari: “If the Rajatarangini is important from the point of view of the political history of ‘Kasmira’, the Nilamata is no less important for the cultural history of that part of the country.”
