Māhissati

A city in the Buddha’s day, mentioned as lying on the route from Bāvarī's hermitage to Sāvatthi (SN. vs. 1011).

According to the Mahāgovinda Sutta (D.ii.) it was the capital of Avanti and was founded at the same time as Campā.

It was probably the capital of Southern Avanti, Avanti Dakkhiṇāpatha, the capital of Northern Avanti being Ujjenī.

In the Māhābhārata (ii.31, 10) Avanti and Māhismati are spoken of as two different countries.
