Jump to: navigation, search

Prince Vishnupalita Kambhoja [1] (Kumara Kanbhoja Vhenupalita in Mhar (Mahad)inscriptions)[1] finds reference in the Buddhist inscriptions (today known as Gandharpale caves situated near confluence of Gandhari & savitri rivers)found at Mhar or Mahad in Kolaba district of Maharashtra, in Bombay Presidency. Kanbhoja of the inscriptions is same as the Kambhoja or Kamboja[2] of ancient Sanskrit and Pali texts and of king Asoka’s Rock Edicts. The prince is believed to have ruled in Kolaba (near Bombay), probably around the 2nd century CE.[3]

Inscriptions[edit]

Inscriptions and charters belonging to the Bhoja rulers, dating to the 5th century, executed by Nidhivara and written by Buddhadasa of the Kamboja have been found in Bandora, Goa.[4][5][6][7]

Luders's inscriptions No 176 and 472 refer to the gift of a monk Kaboja Kamboja) from Nandi-Nagara made at Sanchi Buddghist Stupa.[8][9][10] According to IHQ: "The monk was a Kamboja of Nandi-Nagara which might have been a place in the neighborhood of Sanchi".[11] But no evidence of any ancient place called Nandi-Nagara near Sanchi (in Malawa) is attested. Probably the Nandi Nagara of the Sanchi Inscriptions refers to modern Nandode (Rajpipli) in Gujarat which in earlier was known as Nandan Nagar[citation needed] or Nandi-puri.[12]
