India history and geogprahy

Palla (पल्ल) is the corrupt form of Pallī: a name-ending for place-names mentioned in the Gupta inscriptions (reigned from 3rd century CE). The suffix—palli, pallī, pallaka or its diminutive pallikā is derived from √ pal to go, to move. It means a small village, (esp.) a settlement of wild tribes (e.g. Triśira-pallī = Trichinopoly). Palla is the corrupt form of Pallī which means an inhabitation. Pallī has been used as meaning a den of thieves in the Uttarādhyanasūtra and other Jain canonical texts, the earliest portions of which are assigned to about 300 B.C.
