A Vedic unit of distance used in ancient India, believed to be approximately 6 to 15 kilometers (4 to 9 miles).
A Yojana is a Vedic measure of distance used in ancient India. The exact measurement is disputed amongst scholars with distances being given between 6 to 15 kilometers. In modern Nepali and Hindi yojana also means "plan" or blueprint and has an interesting connection with the Cartesian notion of distance. However "Yojana'" and "Yojanaa" are different. They are pronounced differently. Difference is "a" and "aa" at the end, the second one pronounced "aa" as in arm [ārm].
