Darbhanga is also known as "Cultural Capital of Bihar" or "Unstated Capital of Mithilanchal".HistoryThe history of Darbhanga dates back to the Ramayana and Mahabharata periods; it is among the oldest cities of Bihar. According to the Vedic sources, the Videhas first migrated to the area from the banks of Saraswati in Punjab; they were guided to the east of Sadanira (Gandak River) by Agni, the God of Fire. Settlements were established and, thus, flourished the kingdom of the Videhas, the Selfless.In the course of time, Videhas came to be ruled by a line of kings called Janaks.
