#Kashmir was an inland sea called Satisaar, inhabited by Pahadis/ Nagas (Sanskrit for mountain).
Brahma’s grandson, Rishi Kashyap on his pilgrimage from South India, (when In Jalandhar) was approached for help to free Satisaar of demons Jalodbhav who were tyrannizing the Nagas.
Kashyap Rishi performed poojas to save Nagas from Jalodbhava.

Tripursundari Sharika Devi, Durga incarnation, came to his aid in the form of an enormous bird/ Haer with a Divine stone in her beak; dropped it on 2 demons & killed them.
That stone transformed into Hari Parbat 🙏🏻
Indra helped Kashyap Rishi kill all demons but Jaldeva escaped. Vishnu ji transformed Himself into Varah & killed him.
Hitt by his tail, the mountains made a pass through which the waters of Satisaar flowed out..
That spot where mountains parted is called Varahmula/ Baramulla.
It came to be called Kashyap Saar(Lake) or kashyapa meru (Mountain), Kashmira!


Since the mystic river Saraswati originated in Himalayan region, the dwellers near her, the Saraswats worshipped Saraswati/ Sharada & Shiva.
