Padi or Vadi is one of the terms designating an ‘administrative division’ used in the inscriptions of Andhra Pradesh.—Padi is variously understood as a military camp, hamlet, quarters and district. In the sense of a large district or territory this appellation was employed by the Cholas. But at the time of the Early Pallavas padi was meant for a small division like Nadattapati. For the Cholas Perumbanapadi was an extensive sub-division of Jayangondasola-mandalam. The appellation vadi seems to be a variant of padi. Some of the known vadi divisons, also under the Cholas, are Kandravadi, Noyyana-vadi, Odda-vadi and natavadi.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Indian Epigraphical Glossary
Paḍi.—(EI 21), a measure. Note: paḍi is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
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.
