Dadda III, the Gurjara-Pratihara ruler of Bhrgukachha, was a devotee of Shiva, whereas his forefathers from Dadda I onwards worshiped the Sun. Dadda III is also known to have made a grant in honor of that luminary.[3] Although Dadda I, ruler of Nandol, was a friend of Maitrakas but Dadda III, who for unknown reasons became hostile to them, wrestled Baroach from Maitrakas.
