  22. Prabhat Kumar Bajpai says:

    Nice information in maps of Ramayana period and Mahabharat periodl. However I would like to know the names of southern part of India during Mahabharat period. Since mahabharat period is later than Ramayana period how come that details which were available during Ramayana period were not available during Mahabharat period. Keepup your good work.

  23. Rohit Gupta says:

    Did India look the same during Ramayana and Mahabharata??? O dont think so.

  24. taran says:

    mr prabhat kumar bajpai….u must watch michael wood’s story of india thoroughly……u will know that mahabharat happened before ramayana period (i would be taken as a person who knows nothing, but history is different than blind belief).

  25. PRIYA RANJAN says:

    GOOD TAAR THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED TO LEARN RAMAYANA, THEY MUST KNOW THE STATES OF RAM & HIS TIME
    I PERSONALLY THANK FUL TO YOU PEOPLE FOR PRVIDING THIS DATA.

  26. Prabhat Kumar Bajpai says:

    dear taran, it is common belief on the basis of hindu scriptures that mahabharat period is later than ramayana period. may be michael wood has done some research and came to other conclusion. nevertheless my interest is in the names of southern part of india during mahabharat period.

  27. milind says:

    Please search about it.

  41. Dear Taran,

    Please read about the description of the 4 Yuga. The Ramayan happenned in Treta yuga, whereas the Mahabharata happenned in ending of Dwapar yuga.

  42. nagendra says:

    IN both the epics its said that our Gods control the whole world but it was never mentioned anywhere . Both epics just travel around india. Why? I have been searching for this answer for a long time. Plz do let me if any one has good link which will help me find my answer.

  43. Prof Dr. NSR Sastry says:

    It is not Gods control the World but this World (Vishwa > Brahman) itself is God (Parabrahman Paramatma). Brahman is FULL (poorna) and every thing (world) that comes out of Brahman is also FULL. Yet Brahman is still FULL, always, with not form, no begining, no end, nof features / characteristics and is omnipresent and omnipotent. Accorfing to Hindu tradition (sanaatanadharma), this God=Brahman (Paramaatma) is one with every being (Jeevaatama or simply Aatma) known and unknown – one (not two – advaita). So all worldly things (sun, rain, fire, water, earth, sky etc) are the same God, though we may use diffrent names and descriptions for convenience, imagine their forms and worship them for their benevolance – Surya Dev, Varuna Dev etc. This God=Brahman comprises of two aspects – PURUSHA (male) and PRAKRITI (female). And the PRAKRITI is the real power (Shakti) of the Purusha. The creative or conceptual aspect of Brahman came to be refered as Brahma with His own power (Prakriti – Saraswati). That aspects that maintains the balance in the World came to be called as Vishnu with His own power (Kakshmi). That aspect of Brahman that takes care of the trancendent aspects came to be known as Shiva with His own power (Parvathi). So are other Gods and Goddesses imagined. Srimad Bhagavadgeeta in Mahabharatha is the explanation of Brahman=God by Krishna saying that He is all aspects of World, as we believe that Individual and God is one. Vaalmiki mentions not once of Rama as God but as a model Man. Man by good virtues can be God. Vashistha Geeta and Adyatma Ramayana (of Vyaas) give idea about these aspects.

  44. sameer reddy says:

    this is my answer to mr karthik pandey:- brother govt of india can’t afford to approve any material which is linked with religion. its really sad that not well established historic things like this don’t make significance in our country on the name of religion.
    about southern indian kingdoms, bro there is a speculation about this topic. it includes rational discrimination included according to some historic scholars. ramayana was basically in back drop of aryans and southindia at that time was mostly unknown and whwn occupied they say the people here were called sudras(because of there wild culture and dark complexion). so there’s’t any clear names or descriptions can be made out of ramayna for southern india according to my knowledge.

    to many who have problems with logical explanation for distances places etc… here is my answer. the map here is just an part of representation which can explain these to so proved facts. for that matter ramayna may not takeplace in india at all. according to our mythology ramayana took place around 1.2million yrs ago when almost humans looked like a monkey as far as science is concerned. but mythology says lord rama was aajanubahum(handsome simply). geographical features are dynamic and tend to change every now and then. mahabharatha has some credibility in terms of geographical and historic documentation wise so the map given here may be very precise. but mind you there are flaws in it to. as far as distance and travelling concerned, people our ancestors were gaints. if you don’t believe me ask any anthropologist and indianologist. people were literally not less then 15 feet high and could walk long distances. for eg:- lord rama when when was sent with maharshi vishwamitra walked 12 kose distance non stop in a matter of few hrs without stopping! let me remind you 1 kose is appr.4.35kms.

    any queries plz mail me at sexysam24688@yahoo.com. i’ll try to answer your questions in logical ways. only by questioning and finding answers only we can understand our culture an save our hinduism.

  45. M.M.SHARMA says:

    This is good effort .The dvips mentioned in the great epics may also be spotted in the maps for rich and deeper study.iNDIAN sites are informative..Thanks. DR.M.M.SHARMA

  48. Anand says:

  49. ncs says:

    Sri Lanka is not part of mahabharata

  50. BG says:

    Excellent effort to capture this information. Thanks for sharing.

  51. Sudarshna says:

    what made rama and his friends, not go through madhya pradesh, andhra/karnatka to reach rameshwaram? there si a specific deviation which makes the route longer…i understand that rama do not know where seetamma was so he moved to places wherever he got information. But this deviation look really interesting. Any thoughts please. thank you

  52. prakash singh mehra says:

    What was the area of uttrakhand called during the times of Mahabharat?

  53. CHAKRADHAR ROUT says:

    THANX A LOT FOR PROVIDING GOOD INFORMATION WHICH HELPS US TO KNOW ABOUT THE HEROS AND THEIR STATES.

  54. A.S.S.Rao says:

    Really thanks for your effort. During the time of Ramayana Ram not considered as god becuase his step mother Kaikeyee asked him to go to forest. During Mahabharath time also Krishna was never considered as god, becuase Duryodhana, Karna and Shakuni inuslted him inmany ways. Even Budha, Jesus not considereed as god.. But there teachings and actions raised them to above ordinary men.

  55. vinod kumar shrivastava says:

    map of ramayan la cks sharbhang ashram at amarakantak. here central waterline of india is divided in two parts. son ganga path and narmada path. so rishi sharbhang resided here and known as sharbhang.shar i.e.arrow of narmada-ganga is broken here.lord ram came here during vanvas. this place should be in the map. -vinod shrivastava, damoh mp

  56. p p deshpande says:

    very nice

  57. Sudarsan says:

    Sri.Rama passed through Dandakaranya, Nallamalla forests of AP, Ahobila of AP, Thiruevvul, Thiruputkuzhi(where he performed Tarpan to Jatayu), Avanti/Kanchi all in TN before heading south. It will not be out of place to mention Sri.Rama chose to build landroute to Lanka, near Dhanushkodi, to adhere to sastras, and Hanuman leapt to Lanka across Mahendragiri near Kanyakumari

  58. amit kumar says:

    the route followed by shri rama is wrong in the map

  59. SHOBHA says:

    IT IS VERY HELPFULL.

  60. india should rename its states as like of ancient periods………Mahajanapad like Kosal for central UP,Kuru for Haryana,Delhi n Western UP,Madra for Punjab,Panchal in UP,Kashi for near Banaras,Ang for Munger(Bihar) Magadh for Bihar,Vang for Bengal….most important Prayag for Allahabad
    every nation has renamed its cities n states after independance..must change name to Bharat
