By Swami Harshananda
Sometimes transliterated as: Daksinapatha, DakSiNApatha, Dakshinaapatha
According to the purāṇas, which contain a lot of geographical and historical material on the country, the Bhāratavarṣa is a part of the Jambudvīpa. It is divided into seven regions.
The modern Deccan region is almost the same as Dakṣiṇāpatha.
