Airāvata-go-rājya (ऐरावत-गो-राज्य) is a place-name classified as a rājya and mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Airāvata-go-rājya is not clearly legible. But D.C. Sircar takes the reading to be ‘Airāvata-go-rājya’. Airāvata-go-rājya may literally mean “a kingdom where elephants and cows are found”. It was situated in the viṣaya of Koṭivarṣa which formed a part of the Puṇḍravardhana-bhukti.
