Migration of Brahmins as per Dharasena IV Grant in 650 AD

Migration of Brahmins as per Dharasena IV Grant in 650 AD

In this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Dharasena IV Grant in 650 AD.

Dharasena IV belonged to the Maitrika Clan  of Valabhi  region of Saurashtra in Gujarat.

As per the Dharasena IV Grant of 650 AD, Dharasena IV granted a village near Thasra in Gujarat to a Brahmin Narayanamitra (Sanskrit: नारायणमित्र , Bengali: নারায়ণমিত্র ), son of Keshavamitra ( Sanskrit: केशवमित्र , Bengali: কেশবমিত্র ) from Vadnagar in north eastern Gujarat (incidentally the birthplace of Shri Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India).
