हैदराबाद (पाकिस्तान)

हैदराबाद (AS, p.1030) = 2. सिंध (पाकिस्तान) का शहर. कहा जाता है कि वर्तमान हैदराबाद के स्थान पर प्राचीन समय में पाटशिला नामक नगर बसा हुआ था (दे. पाटशिला)[2]


विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[3] ने लेख किया है ...पाटशिला (AS, p.546) चीनी यात्री युवानच्वांग ने, जिसने भारत का भ्रमण 630-645 ई. में किया था, सिंध (पाकिस्तान) के इस नाम के नगर का उल्लेख किया है. वह इस स्थान से होकर गुजरा था. वाटर्स तथा कनिंघम के अनुसार पाटशिला नगरी वर्तमान हैदराबाद (सिंध) के स्थान पर बसी होगी. शायद इसी नगर को यूनानी लेखकों ने पाटल कहा है. पाटशिला का पाटशिल है.
