Map of Bharat Varsha: Great India During the Mahabharata

Posted on January 14, 2007

In my travels on the web, I found an excellent map of Greater Bharat(India) from the time of the Mahabharata. It shows, in detail, the name of the various cities/towns/settlements and mountain ranges and kingdoms from way, way back. The map itself claims that the period is around the 6th century BC, but the historical accuracy might be questionable. Suffice it to say that this map will help you understand where the different kingdoms and places mentioned in the Mahabharata were located.

Map of Ancient India, Bharat - Mahabharata

    The Indian Ocean isn’t called Indian Ocean??? What is that thing?! (Although in antiquity, maybe it wasn’t called that.)

    Interesting map, though. Where did you get this, anyway?

  2. mike3 September 14, 2007 1:35 am

    “that” = “Indian Ocean”, by the way.

    Namaste. I am from Argentina, South America. I am doing a research about varnasrama and of course Mahabharata is a big big issue for me. This map is a very handy tool for me, so thank you for your work.

    My main interest is also Sri Krishna, since the main goal of varnasrama is Krishna`s satisfaction.

    Sankirtana yajña ki… jaya!

    There is one major mistake in it. Rajagriha was the capital of magadha till 5th century BC before pataliputra and is located in Bihar near Patna. The map wrongly shows it in Punjab. Rajagriha’s remains are now called Rajgir archaeological site maintained by archaeological society of India. Pataliputra was not a city when Buddha came to magadha. capital was shifted from Rajgir to Pataliputra later by Udayana, son of Ajathashathru.
    There are many more other kingdoms and towns at the time of Bharat war which can be included in this map.

    This map is very informative.

  23. Jagmohan Singh April 20, 2010 3:46 pm

    If this map is from the Sixth century BC then it really cannot be said that it refletcs the period of the Mahabharta as some state that the actual epic took place a few thousands years prior to this date. But overall an interesting map.

  24. Ramthanga Khawlhring April 22, 2010 9:14 am

  25. R.Sridharan May 28, 2010 5:37 am

    I am extremely happy and proud to about my ancestry being born in this Punya Bjumi Bharat Varsha.

    But traditionally we know that Bharat was made up of 56 desas or kingdoms

    Can you please give the names of the remaining kingdoms and show them at the appropriate places in the map?

    This nails the lie that there was no such thing as India before the British came and only they unified it


  26. sanatana dharmi June 17, 2010 4:18 am

    After Ram Rajya, Mahabharat was indeed “Mahan Akhand Bharat”, approximately 3100 years BC,

    It is sad, a culture which dates five thousand years and beyond, which has dealt with all forms of invasion, and infiltration(from within and without) is now being divided into smaller and smaller states with non-Hinduism(Sanatan Dharma) as its ideology.

    It is also painful to see Nepal, the only Hindu Country(officially) being targetted by communism(nastik ideology)

    It is also painful to see the demand to create new sub states within Bharath(a secular state).

    It is only when the element of “Dharma” and “Truth” prevail will the opposing evil called pseudoreligious-fundamentalism give way to nationalism.

    Jai Maha Bharath.

  27. Indian June 17, 2010 4:25 am

    if dharm which is righteousness and truth must prevail then India will be MAHA BHARATH.

    but religion without truth and righteousness will cause any Nation to disintegrate.

  28. Praveen Jain July 27, 2010 10:08 am

    what has been taken as base for deciding this period ?

    hindustan was the biggest civilization all over the world.They were great warriors and the people having capabilities of all the things and were masters in all the things.Those you will comment negative on this are foolish peoples.

  32. nilesh November 30, 2010 11:43 am

    If we live unitely no one can rule or come in comparision with by the lesson of the past we should learn something and live unitely forever and create a new future.Those foolish pakistanis and chinese should understand that live happily with us forever because now we are united and you have to fight with all of us that is impossible so don’t waste time.the negative comment are people with foolish minds.

  33. Prabhukanth December 15, 2010 9:37 am

    It was good to see the map of India during Mahabharata period.
    While there a kingdom called PANDYA KINGDOM who rule out the entire South India at that time.
    This kingdom has also took part in Mahabharata War on Pandava’s side (refer Mahabharata by author: Menon)
    This was not mentioned in the map.
    We have losed the unity after the down fall of Mauryan Emplire.
    This lead to the invasion of foreign powers from Alexander to Ghori, Aurangazeeb, Babar, Bhamani sultans and to the past British Empire
    Since India was an Hindu country who were these people to spread there religons in our country.
    If we go to spread our religon in there own country will it be pratically possible
    All the foolish should think of it

    why we do not call india as bharat. we all shouldt start to say bharat as it is our identity, nshould not called identity given by england

  37. Govinda Thakkar February 11, 2011 6:57 pm

    In our Shàshtra, you never see Hindustàna or India. It is Àryàvarta (inhabited Àrya – meaning civilised people) or Bhàrata.
    Irànians can not pronounce S and distorted H and from Sindhu Nadï came Hindu – people around Sindhu; and with our loss of identity accepted what our masters say. Later (even in Wealth of the nations, Adam Smith shows the earlier Industan, which later became INDIA.
    In our constitution it is stated as BHÀRATA (also know as India) also was agreed that after 25 years or so we will have Deva Nàgarï as our script.
    I was told by Prof. Shàshrï that 50% wanted Samskrita, and 50% wanted Hindi, and it was Ràjendra Prasàda who voted for Hindi, and alineated Dràvid people to go for English, which was also to be removed after few years.
    Imagine Nehru Hindi, would have made our national language same as Pàpistàni Urdu. Thanks south to save us.
    Samskrita and Devanàgarï is ours all the time. There are more Samskrita scholars, in Karnàtaka than north and Shï Krishna Shàshri has started to spread thro’ Use more Samskrit or atleat transliterate (TimesIndic font I know).
    Let us spread Sanskrita, Bhàrata and Vaidika Dharma.
    North – South division, and Àrya migration was to divide us. That they came from north asia and Mohanjo dero and Harrapà is myth. Let us have more unity.
    Shivajï is from Kailàsh and we should keep as our Tirtha Sthàna.
    The first alien remark proves that he is ignorant.
    Even world is accepting that Vegitarinism which was taught is more healthy and ecological than meat propagated by Western culture and religions.

  38. Govinda February 12, 2011 12:13 pm

    It is not approriate map to limit the areas shown.
    Gàndhàrï and Shakuni were from area beyond Afghanistàn.
    Also I had seen in US state dept booklet, for Vietnàm that it was known as Champà desh as late as 700 years ago.
    Also Iràn was the people driven out of Àryàvarta, who were not able to abide with our values.
    Their (Pàrasi) god is AHUR MAZADA, is a distortion ASUR – ASUR are Ràkshas in our Shàshra(They have S distorted as H).
    Contrary to Westerner, our culture and values were spread for their benifit and peacefully.
    It is our HIGH values (In Western philosophy Higher and lower meaning HIGH moral and lower – realistic), which created our later history, to let go Shahbuddin Ghory and Mahmad Gizni so many times. We should have followed atleast “US 3 strick and you are out”

  39. Kr.Shiv Pratap Singh March 14, 2011 12:36 am

    No doubt that the map is good showing Bharat Varsha sixth century BC, but unfortunately it has also been distorted, and the entire credit goes to Lord McGhauley. The most unfortunate part for our country had been that all our ancient scriptures were damaged, distorted by the british invaders to promote their own civilization and prove that this part of the world belonged to uncultured tribesmen. They succeeded quite a lot as even now we feel that whatever is being stamped by the Britishers is the only authentic proof about our history, culture and traditions and rest is just hoax.What a pity and shame on us.
    Sorry to say Mr. R.Padmnabhan has mixed up Rajagrihi of Punjab with Rajagrihi shown below of Patliputra

  40. Babbu Rana April 8, 2011 4:34 am

    it is our bad luck that our HIndu kings quarrel with each other & give chance to enter these arabian in our LOving Hindustan to make pollution in all type like terrorist ,poverty & many types.till date they do not live us with peace. tell to gilani who is he to demand Kashmir etc.they r our lessee without paying any amount & give pain to all of us.they make holes in that mug in which they eat .we hate like these people. they should go to there native place in arab country.where they will called muhazir .

  41. gita June 16, 2011 11:16 am

    It is sad that so many people believe this to be a true map of India/Bharat, whatever you would like to call it, for that time. One can easily create their own map from the mahabharat and ramayan. Plus this seems very similar to todays india, I was under the impression that a lot of land sank under the ocean nearing the end of the mahabharat, but that doesnt seem to be the case here. I was also under the impression that Afghanistan was indian land, maybe even Iran, Burma…. Furthermore, coming from a Hindu family, myself, I think many ‘hindus’ have lost the values and morals that the Bhagavad Geeta instructs,that does not include the chapter on the caste system, as any intelligent literate person can see, that that chapter was added later, as it interrupts the flow of the book. What I am trying to say is Do your own research, but no, many indians do not understand their own culture, being a hindu is not a religion it is a way of life that is particular to each family. And you must question every facet of your culture, because unless you truly understand what you are doing you are just a blind fool following a belief that may or may not exist. Plus being a hindu I find it highly irritating that many hindus are up their own arses believeing themselves to be better than other religions, or castes, which makes you just as blind and ignorant as the rest of them. We are all equal, we are all the same, it is our egos, and false personalities that make us believe we are more than others. Read the Bhagavad Geeta to get some perspective. But to end, my friends dont believe everything you see so blindly. In fact look into Graham Hancocks site, it might shed some light.

  42. gita June 16, 2011 11:21 am

    Furthermore, there have been documentaries on british tv that have shown that the Western Aryan race that so called mixed with the native hindu race WAS A MYTH. The british archeologist that discovered how advanced hindus were at the time found it difficult to accept that here was a race that was so advanced it actually had sewer drains and toilets, at a time when people in Europe and England were living in mud huts and going to the toilet on the ground or in pots that were then emptied into the streets!!! There needs to be a lot more legitimate archeology to be carried out in india, to demonstrate to the rest of the world how advanced it once was. Now I fear its just full of wanna be westerners!!

    Four decades of Western indoctrination and I venture, searching for an India I have never known! I feel humbled by the enormity of a civilisation I abandoned, for material prosperity. India is not a land drawn on a historical document. It is an entity that dwarfs all civilisations…East or West. I know this, for I have lived in many lands.In my book, Metempsychosis, The Eternal Wandering Spirit I have endeavoured to capture the soul of a culture;it is the only way I can make ammends for a act of desertion. If there is any truth in the concept of an eternal soul, then, I know, mine will return back to the land of its inception…India.

    Afganistan, the whole of today’s pakistan, nepal, bangladesh, the entire Himalayas and Karakoram, the whole of today’s north east india, burma were all part of bharatvarsha. the then kings and emperors had supreme influence in ceylon, iran, iraq and parts of arabia and also in the east like thailand and indonesia.

  59. Iain Folley June 9, 2012 6:45 pm

    Excellent map! The one in the Penguin Classics is only interested in the north though it does identify Puskara. Herodotus wrote of India, about the same time the Mahabharata was written, that it was the most populous country in the world. However this was a good half millenia after the events that formed the subject matter of the Mahabharata.

    Very good, informative and useful. Appears to be historically correct!

  86. G.Mukundan November 5, 2013 9:25 pm

    I could not find in this map where DAKSHASHILA is portraied. There is a mention about Dakshashila in Mahabharatham. Sometimes ere, our current politicians have also argued about Dakshashila. That kindled my interest to know about it!

    The civilizations of Mohenjo-Daro & Harappan were flourishing during 3000 to 3500 B.C around Sindhu (Indus) river. Most recent location found in South-east Gujrat at Lothal & Dholavira North-east Kutch are also equivalent in time of Mahabharata they should also have been depicted on the map. Any way good collection of information. It is time to unite whole of Indian Subcontinent like this for peace of world.

    One interesting point is that while my travels in India I travel a lot in Orissa and I once was in a village where they have a Kicakeshwari temple, where kicaka worshiped Durga devi, and they have a tree where the Pandavas hid their weapons during their stay at virata. But here on this map matsya kingdom is in the centre of India! How is that? There in Orissa they told me that for sure tha pandavas were hidding there….

    Can we again get back to this Bharat Varsha…

    1. It will help in more trade without barriers

    2. More investments to promote trade and Industries

    3. No building of tensions of war/dispute across the existing boundaries-India without boundaries

    4. The spending on defense can diverted to Industrial Development

    5. The religious harmony will improve and more equality among the people

    There are numerous other advantages which we realize later.

    This map definitely carries old status of states of real Hindu Kingdom.But somehow it would be different from actual Map of B C E( before common erra)which is far more before of BC.

  122. Krishna Rao Varanasi February 22, 2015 8:39 am

    It is astonishing of having gone through it. I think that most of the areas in the map were ruled by Asuras like Jarasanda, Poundraka Vasudeva etc.,Almost all these kingdoms with their soldiers and warriors were participated in Mahabharat war. Before the Mahabharat war, Jarasandh also attacked Madhura and later Dwaraka for 17 times to kill God Krishna in retaliation against Krishna and Balarama for their killing his son in law Kamsa, engaged 23 Akshonis soldiers and defeated. Later, 18 akshonis of soldiers and warriors participated in Mahabharat war. Any – good enlight.

  133. Arjun August 31, 2015 11:39 pm


    In the comments I’ve seen so many research persons upon this topic. About ancient India, Mahabharata and all.

    Can anyone help me with the usage of “Bharatat Purvam” in Aryabhatiyam. Many say it is the time line as Before Christ(BC) in western lands in our Astronomical studies and starts with the end of Mahabharata War.

    My concern is, then what is the significance of Emperor Bharata(Son of Dushyanta and Shakuntala) who ruled this whole land and after whom the Old Jambudweep was renamed to “Bharat”.

    Is my interpretation is correct? Or any other point is there that I missed.

    Please feel free to contact me and help me.
    MOB: 9745534632 (Whatsapp also).

    Please with due respect no religious speech I need just logical comments.
