The city of Lahore,Pakistan was founded by Lava, meaning Particle, was founded by  Lava, son of Lord Rama.

The city of  Lopburi Thailand and Laos were named after him.



The LohanasKurmisLeva Patidars and Leva Gurjars are present-day Indo-Aryan ethnic groups who claim to be descendants of Lava.

A legend based on oral traditions holds that Lahore, known in ancient times as Shehwar Elahi ka thikana (“Den of Shehwar” in Sanskrit),was founded by Prince Lava or Loh, the son of Sita and Rama, the Hindu deity in the RamayanaKasur was founded by his twin brother Prince Kusha.

To this day, Lahore Fort has a vacant temple dedicated to Lava (also pronounced Loh, hence Loh-awar or “The Fort of Loh”).

Ptolemy, the celebrated 2nd-century Egyptian astronomer and geographer, mentions in his Geographia a city called Labokla  situated on the route between the Indus River and Palibothra, or Pataliputra (Patna) mostly, in a tract of country called Kasperia (Kashmir). It was described as extending along the rivers Bidastes or Vitasta (Jhelum), Sandabal or Chandra Bhaga (Chenab), and Adris or Iravati (Ravi). This city may have been ancient Lahore..

 

To this day, Lahore Fort has a vacant temple dedicated to Lava (also pronounced Loh, hence Loh-awar or “The Fort of Loh”).[7]

The oldest authentic document about Lahore was written anonymously in 982. It is called Hudud-i-Alam (The Regions of the World).[8] In 1927 it was translated into English by Vladimir Fedorovich Minorsky and published in Lahore. In this document, Lahore is referred to as a small shehr (city) with “impressive temples, large markets and huge orchards.” It refers to “two major markets around which dwellings exist,” and it mentions “the mud walls that enclose these two dwellings to make it one.” The original document is currently held in the British Museum.[9]
