Migration of Brahmins as per Sangli Grant of Govinda IV in 933 AD

Migration of Brahmins as per Sangli Grant of Govinda IV in 933 AD

In this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Sangli Grant of Govinda IV in 933 AD.

Govinda IV was a Rashtrakuta ruler who ruled from 930 AD to 935 AD.

In 933 AD Govinda IV  granted a village in Sangli district in Southern Maharashtra to a Brahmin named Keshava Dikshita (Sanskrit :  केशव दीक्षित , Bengali : কেশব দীক্ষিত ) son of Damodara Bhatta (Sanskrit :  दामोदर भट्ट , Bengali :  দামোদর ভট্ট) of Pundravardhana in northern Bengal (West Bengal and Islamist Bangladesh).

Thus in 933 AD, Bengali Brahmin Keshava Dikshita migrated from north Bengal to South Maharashtra, a trip which would have easily taken 1 to 2 months on foot!
