Sanskrit Names of Earth

Earth is the planet we live on. We often refer the land itself as ‘earth’ because water can’t be called earth. This is the reason many people say that it is an ‘ocean’ than ‘earth’ that we live on because majority of Earth is water.

There are appellations of ‘mother’ and ‘sustainer of life’ given to earth because it provides the means for life. In Sanskrit language, I could find around 58 names of Earth from various dictionaries.

If you know more names or have any feedback regarding this list, I will be very happy to hear from you through the comment section.
