Migration of Brahmins per Kaira Plates of Gurjara Dadda II in 630 AD BharuchIn this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Kaira Plates issued by Gurjara Dadda II who ruled around 630 AD in the Broach or Bharuch region of Gujarat.

Gurjara Dadda II belonged to the Gurjara clan of Broach, a branch of the Gurjara family of Rajputana who were feudatories to either the 
Gurjara family of Rajputana or the Chalukyas.

The 
Kaira Plates issued by Gurjara Dadda II were edited by Vasudev Mirashi.

As per the 
Kaira Plates of 630 AD, Gurjara Dadda II granted villages in Bharuch District to forty Brahmins (Brahmanas) two of whom were immigrants. These two Brahmins were:
  • Bhatti (Sanskrit: भट्टि Bengali: ভট্টি)
  • Bhadra (Sanskrit:भद्र Bengali: ভদ্র)

Both Brahmins came from places within 50 kms to north and east of Broach to Broach.
