1) Daśanapura (दशनपुर).—The place occurs in the Darsi grant of Kumāraviṣṇu, and in the Manglur grant of Siṃhavarman II. Both the grants are dated from this place. Daśanapura has been identified with Darsi in Nellore district. Moreover, Palakkaḍa of the Uruvupalli grant of Siṃhavarman is sometimes considered as the Telugu equivalent of Daśanapura.

2) Daśanapura (दशनपुर).—Mr. Burnell took Palakkaḍa as the Telugu equivalent of Daśanapura. Both these suggestions have been questioned by the distinguished scholars like Dr. Hultzsch and Dr. Fleet. According to C. R. Krishnamacharlu, Palukuru in Kandukur taluq of the Nellore district might be taken identical with Palakkaḍa or Palākaṭa.
