Madhya Pradesh: Cultural and Historical Geography From Place Names in Inscriptions (In 2 Volumes)

Malati Mahajan (Author)
Synopsis The present work aims in tracing the cultural and historical geography of Madhya Pradesh from available place names from the inscription found in the region which have been classified in this book on the basis of prefixes and suffixes and are arranged under different heads such as topography, flora, fauna, settlement, administrative divisions, social, economic and religious conditions chronologically. The place names which have been taken here are dynasty-wise and for the convenience of the readers they have been classified under different groups such as (1) Mauryas, Sungas and Satavahanas (2) Guptas and their feudatories and contemporaries, (3) Pratiharas and Paramaras, (4) Chandellas and their contemporaries and (5) Kalachuris of Tripuri. Some epigraphs mentioning the place names of Madhya Pradesh but found in adjoining provinces as well have also been discussed. The maps of the kingdoms of Paramaras and Chandellas of Jejakabhukti give an idea about the extent of the empire of these dynasties. The present book is the first ever systematic attempt towards the reconstruction of the cultural and historical geography of Madhya Pradesh based on place names corroborated and supplemented, wherever possible, with the archaeological, literary and sculptural and epigraphical data.
