India history and geogprahySource: archive.org: History of Gujarat
Takkadesa is the name of a country, offered by Gurjjara king Alakhana to the Kashmir king Sankaravarman as a peace-offering.—This Takkadesa appears to be the same as the Tsehkia of Hiuen Tsiang (A.D. 630-640) who puts it between the Biyas on the east and the Indus on the west thus including nearly the whole Panjab. The tract surrendered by Alakhana was probably the small territory to the east of the Chinab as the main possessions of Alakhana must have lain further west between the Chinab and the Jehlam, where lie the town of Gujarat and the country still called Gujar-desa the land of the Gujars.
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.
