The kingdom of the Daradas is identified to be the Gilgit region in Kashmir. Arjuna is said to have visited this country of Daradas during his northern military campaign to collect tribute for Yudhisthira's Rajasuya sacrifice. Many Daradas are also said to have attended the sacrifice and offered him lots of gifts. Daradas had also participated in the Kurukshetra war fought between the Kauravas and Pandavas.
The Vayu Purana, Brahmanda Purana and Vamana Purana mention the Daradas with the Kambojas, Chinas, Tusharas and the Bahlikas etc. The Bhuvankosha of the Puranas locates the Daradas, Kambojas, Barbaras, Bahlikas and Lampakas in the Uttarapatha division of ancient India.
As per the 'Drona Parva' of the Mahabharata, Krishna had conquered the Daradas along with Anga, Vanga, Magadha, Kasi, Vatsa, Garga and many others.
