15. THE FIVE VILLAGES

Ever wondered what the names of the five villages (for which the battle of Mahabharat was fought) demanded by the Pandvas in lieu of Hastinapur, were named?  Here goes:

1. Swarna-prastha (Sonipat, Haryana)
2. Parna-prastha (Panipat, Haryana)
3. Indra-prastha (Delhi)
4. Vyagra-prastha (Baghpat, Haryana)
5. Tila-prastha (Tilapat,Haryana)

These villages (!) have been continuously inhabited since the times of the Mahabarata.
