In this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Patna Grants of Mahashivagupta I Yayati in 944 AD.

Mahashivagupta I Yayati ruled from 920 AD to 955 AD. He belongs to the Somavamshis of Odisha.

The Patna Grants were issued by Mahashivagupta I Yayati in his 24th and 28th regal years.

As per the Patna Grants of 944 AD, Mahashivagupta I Yayati granted a village in Bolangir District in western Orissa to a Brahmin Bhatta Mahodadhi (Sanskrit: भट्ट महोदधि Bengali: ভট্ট মহোদধি), son of Siddheshvara ( Sanskrit: सिद्धेश्वर Bengali: সিদ্ধেশ্বর ) from Shravasti region of Uttar Pradesh.

Shravasti is roughly today where the ruins at Saheth and Maheth exists, on the boundaries of the Gonda and Bahreich districts of Uttar Pradesh.
