A town in the Kuru country. In the Kurudhamma Jātaka (J.ii.365f; also J.iii.400; iv.361; v.457; vi.255; Cyp.i.3, v.1), Dhana˝jaya Koravya, is mentioned as its king and as the owner of A˝janavasabha, the elephant of wondrous power.
The town was seven leagues in extent (J.v.57; 484) and there was a road that ran straight from Indapatta to Bārānasī (J.v.59).
In times past, Indapatta was considered one of the three chief cities of Jambudīpa, the others being Uttarapa˝cāla and Kekaka (J.ii.213, 214).
According to a verse found at the end of the Buddhavamsa (Bu.xxviii.11), the Buddha's razor and needle were enshrined at Indapatta.
The modern Delhi stands on the site of Indapatta.
