DAKṢIṆAPĀÑCĀLA : A place famous in the Purāṇas. This place lies to the south of the Ganges up to the river Caṁpat. It is mentioned in Mahābhārata Sabhā Parva, Chapter 14, Stanza 27, that the King of this country fled to the south fearing Jarāsandha. Pāñcāla lies to the south and north of the Ganges. But the country was divided into two when Droṇa defeated Drupada the King of Pāñcāla, and took away from him the part of the country north of the Ganges. After that, the part taken by Droṇa was called Uttarapāñcāla and the part south of the Ganges was called Dakṣiṇapāñcāla. (M.B. Ādi Parva, Chapter 137).
