Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Sovīra:A country mentioned in the Mahāgovinda Sutta (D.ii.235),and again in the Aditta Jātaka (J.iii.470; cf.Mil.359,where it is mentioned as a place to be visited by sea).

In the time of King Renu,Bharata was king of Sovīra,andRoruka was its capital.

Cunningham identifies Sovīra with Eder,a district in the province of Gujarat,at the head of the gulf of Cambay.(Anct.Geog.of India,p.569f.; he identifies Sauvīra with Sophir or Ophir; cf.Hopkins,Great Epic,373,474.).

The compound Sindhu-Sovīra (E.g.,VvA.332) suggests that Sovīra was situated between the Indus and the Jhelum.
