Counted among the "sixteen great nations" (solas Mahajanapadas) in Buddhist texts like the Anguttara Nikaya, Anga also finds mention in the Jain Vyakhyaprajnapti’s list of ancient janapadas. According to Mahabharata Karna ruled the Kingdom during the period.
Some refer that the Angas were grouped with people of ‘mixed origin’, generally in the later ages.
