Kosala

 

a state and historic region in ancient India, located north of the middle course of the Ganges River (corresponding to the later region of Oudh). It apparently arose in the seventh to the early sixth century B.C. At the end of the sixth century a number of neighboring regions, particularly Kasi, came under Kosala’s dominion. In the fifth century B.C., under King Prasenajit, Kosaia was forced after a long struggle to accept vassalage to the king of Magadha, Ajatasatru. Later, the sources cease to mention Kosaia as a political entity.
