India history and geogprahy
Yajñavaṭa or Yajñavaṭatīrtha is the name of a sacred place, as mentioned in the “Ghūmlī plates of Bāṣkaladeva” (989 A. D.). Bāṣkala is stated to have made the grant after taking a bath in the Yajñavaṭa-tīrtha at a holy place called Piṇḍatāraka. There is a kuṇḍa near the temple at Piṇḍārā and this may be the Yajñavaṭa-tīrtha mentioned in the inscription.
This inscribed copper plate (mentioning Yajñavaṭa) was found in the course of digging operations at Ghūmlī in the former Navanagar State. The date corresponds to the 22nd April, 989 A.D. and it records the grant of a village made by Rāṇaka Bāṣkaladeva surnamed Kuṃkumalola, for the merit of his parents, in favour of a Brāhmaṇa.(Source): What is India: Epigraphia Indica volume XXXI (1955-56)
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
