Description:
Malwa (Malwi, Devnagari:मालवा, Marathi:माळवा IAST: Māļawā) is a region in west-central northern India occupying a plateau of volcanic origin in the western part of the state of Madhya Pradesh. This region had been a separate political unit from the time of the Indian tribe of Malawas until 1947, when the British Malwa Agency was merged into Madhya Bharat (also known as Malwa Union). Although political borders have fluctuated throughout history, the region has developed its own distinct culture and language.

The plateau that forms a large part of the region is named the Malwa Plateau, after the region. The average elevation of the Malwa plateau is 500&nbsp;metres, and the landscape generally slopes towards the north. Most of the region is drained by the Chambal River and its tributaries; the western part is drained by the upper reaches of the Mahi River. Ujjain was the political, economic, and cultural capital of the region in ancient times, and Indore is presently the largest city and commercial centre.<!--We have ancient capital vs. modern large city: what is the modern capital?
