India history and geography
Velanāṇḍu is the name of a viṣaya (region) of the ancient kingdom of Veṅgi, ruled over by the Eastern Cālukyas from the 7th to 12th centuries. A viṣaya was divided into a number of villages. Smaller villages were called Grāmaṭikā and Puṇḍi. The kingdom of Veṅgi comprised Andhra and part of Kaliṅga for more than five hundred years and during this period, the Eastern Cālukyas developed there a prosperous civilisation. Their reign advanced the society and brought with them scientific advancements, religious freedom, literature and various forms of art and architecture.
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.
