The Upa Puranas (sometimes spelled Upapuranas) are minor Hindu scriptures which were composed in Sanskrit. The Upa Puranas are the appendices to the major Puranas, and are believed to have been composed in the same time period.

The Upa-Puranas comprise eighteen texts, of which just twelve have survived. These twelve Upa-Puranas are: Sanatkumara, Mudgala, Narasimha, Brihannaradiya, Sivarahasya, Durvasha, Kapila, Vamana, Bhargava, Varuna, Kalika and Samba.

The Upa-Puranas are similar in style and content to the major Puranas, although they are much shorter in length. Most of the Upa-Puranas were composed as commentaries on the original Puranas, and were intended to provide additional information on various topics, such as the Vedas. Dharma-Sastras, Dharma-Shastras, Ithihasas and Itivruttas. It is thought that some of the Upa-Puranas were originally connected to the major Puranas in a much more substantial way, but those sections were eventually lost.

The Upa-Puranas focus mostly on legends and mythology, particularly on Siva and Vishnu. They contain a variety of stories on Hindu gods and goddesses, as well as tales related to regional customs and traditions. The Upa-Puranas also provide mystical interpretations of religious ceremonies, rituals and symbols.
