A river in India; one of the most important of those that flow from the Himālaya (Mil.p.114).
The best horses were born in the country around its banks (AA.ii.756; MA.i.248), hence their name Sindhava (J.v.260 (22); cf.ii.290). Serī was king of both Sindhu (Sindhavarattha) and Sodhika (? Sovīra) (SA.i.90).
Mention is made (VvA.332) of merchants from Anga and Magadha going to Sindhu Sovīra and passing through great wildernesses on the way. The Sindhavā are mentioned in the Apadāna (Ap.ii.359) in a list of tribes.
The Sindhunadī is the modern Indus.
Isidāsī was once born as a goat in Sindhavārañña. Thig.vs.438.
