Map Showing the The Deccan Plateau and South India

The term "Deccan" comes from the Sanskrit word dakshina, meaning "the south". The Deccan Plateau encompasses the four states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Most of the southern peninsula is a fertile rice growing region. The term Deccan Plateau is sometimes used to indicate the region south of the Narmada river, and to include parts of Maharashtra, Gujarat,  and Madhya Pradesh states.
