||At last the son of the slayer of Paka, arriving in the country of North Harivarsha desired to conquer it.
||The land that is beyond Hemakuta is called Harivarsha, South of the Nila range and on the north of the Nishadha is a mountain, O king, called Malyavat that stretches from east to west.
||These five Varshas viz, Sweta, Hiranyaka, Elavrita, Harivarsha, and Haimavat-varsha are in the middle, of which Elavrita exists in the very middle of all.
||The Varsha known as Haimavat is superior to Bharatavarsha, while Harivarsha is superior to Hainavatvarsha, in respect of all qualities'
