Posted on: 14-04-2017 , 11:20:AM | DY365 Bureau

Bahubali’s tale is set in the kingom of Mahishmati, which contrary to popular notion, is not entirely fictional.

According to historical records, Mahishmati is a city likely to have been located in central India, what is now the state of Madhya Pradesh. The city finds mentin in numerous records as well as tales, which suggest that it was a capital city and an socio-political centre.

It is believed that Mahishmati was a part of the Avanti kingdom, an ancient Indian janapada. Puranic records suggest that Avanti was split by the Vindhyas into two parts – while the capital was Ujjayini, located in the north, Mahishmati was the headquarters of the Southern part. Though historical accounts and stories offer conflicting views, the city is considered to have been the erstwhile capital of the Haihayas, an ancient confederacy of five clans that ruled over large parts of Western and Central India.
