Mahisamaṇḍala

v.l. Mahiṃsamaṇḍala.– A country, converted by the Thera Mahādeva, who taught the Devadūta Sutta there (Mhv.xii.4, 29; Dpv.viii.5; Sp.i.63).

The country is generally regarded as the modern Mysore.

However, see J. R.A.S.1910, 429 ff., where the author says that Māhissati was its capital and that it was an island in the Narbadā River; see also Mhv.Trs.84, n.5.
