Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

There is an ancient tradition, not to be discarded even on geological grounds, that the low-lying land between the mainland and Saurashtra was once covered by the sea in which the Vedic Sarasvati emptied her waters.

It is equally worth noting that the Puranas refer to Nagas living in Patala.1 Patala,   later considered to be the nether regions, is associated with Sindh. The Puranic legend refers to the river Sarasvati having brought Vadavanala, Aurvanala or Kalagni, submarine fire, to be merged in the sea  near Prabhasa. There are also references to Patala as the land of the Nagas, as also the place where Vadavanala found a haven on earth.

1 Bhajam-Vide references Gujarat 'Somanatha', pp. 15 and 17.
