India history and geogprahy

Pāṇḍīpura (पाण्डीपुर).—Adur grant of Kīrtivarman I refers to the city of Pāṇḍīpura, which is no other than the site of modem village Adur, about eight miles to the east of Hangal in the Dharwar district, Mysore State. The city is described in the Rāṣṭrakūṭa records of the 9th and the 10th centuries by the same name, but in later inscriptions of the Western Cālukyas and the Kadambas, we find it slightly changed as Pāṇḍiyur. ijter on, by the loss of the initial letter, the name of the city adopted the similar form as stands to this day.
