The Indian subcontinent is a term that denotes the region of South Asia. The region is part of the Asian (and, in turn, the Eurasian) continent lying mainly on the Indian tectonic plate to the south of the Himalayas, forming a land mass which extends southward into the Indian Ocean. According to some academicians, while the term was more prevalent in the past it is being replaced by the term South Asia.
