Scriptures such as Rigveda and Upanishads mention several women sages andseers, notably Gargi and Maitreyi. Some kingdoms in the ancient India hadtraditions such as Nagarvadhu ‘bride ofthe city’. Women competed to win the coveted title of the Nagarvadhu. Amrapali is the most famous example of a Nagarvadhu.
