Mahipālakṣetra (महिपालक्षेत्र) or Mahipāla is a place-name classified as a kṣetra and mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 52. 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. This field seems to have belonged to a person named Mahipāla literally meaning ‘a protector of the country’, i. e. a king.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
