Praveśā (प्रवेशा) is another name for Pratoyā, one of the seven major rivers in Kuśadvīpa, according to the Varāhapurāṇa chapter 87. Kuśadvīpa is one of the seven islands (dvīpa), ruled over by Vapuṣmān, one of the ten sons of Priyavrata, son of Svāyambhuva Manu, who was created by Brahmā, who was in turn created by Nārāyaṇa, the unknowable all-pervasive primordial being.
The Varāhapurāṇa is categorised as a Mahāpurāṇa, and was originally composed of 24,000 metrical verses, possibly originating from before the 10th century. It is composed of two parts and Sūta is the main narrator.

Praveśa or Prāveśa.—(EI 17), explained as ‘a small territorial unit’; but probably refers to the assessment of the rent of a loca- lity along with another; cf. Siviḍi-praveśa-Kandalivāḍa-grāma inter- preted as ‘Kandalivāḍa-grāma having its rent assessed along with Siviḍi’ (Ep. Ind., Vol. XXXI, p. 59, note 1). See prāveśya, prāpīya. Note: praveśa 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.
