India history and geographySource: archive.org: Geography in Ancient Indian inscriptions
Prācī (प्राची) is the name of a river found in India.—The river exists by its old name at present. The nearest distance of this river from Bhubaneswar is twelve to thirteen miles. The river traverses a course of thirty miles before it empties itself into the Bay of Bengal. Both the banks of Prācī abound in the old ruins of temples, wells, tanks and in mounds that wait excavation.
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.
