Malayaketu is a proper personal name indicating Malaya: one of the territories of tribes mentioned in the 7th-century Mudrārākṣasa.—The term Malaya, represented by the name of Malayaketu and by a certain Siṃhanāda, king of Malaya, included among the five foremost vassals of Malayaketu. Malaya is beyond doubt the name of the Western Ghats, the mountain range along the west coast of south India (or a particular peak in this range), associated in Sanskrit literature with pleasant winds bearing the fragrance of sandalwood.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, 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.

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
