uttara madra उत्तर मद्र

Definition: Is the name of a tribe mentioned with the Uttara Kurus in the Aitareya Brāhmana as living beyond the Himālaya. Zimmer points out that in the Vamśa Brāhmana Kāmboja Aupamanyava is a pupil of Madragāra, and thence infers that Kambojas and Madras were not far distant in space. This conclusion is perfectly reasonable in view of the probable position of the Kambojas.
