Migration of Brahmins per Sankheda Plates of Gurjara Dadda II in 642 AD

In this post I will talk about the migration of Brahmins as per Sankheda Plates issued in 642 AD by Gurjara Dadda II who ruled 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 Sankheda Plates issued by Gurjara Dadda II were edited by Vasudev Mirashi.

As per the Sankheda Plates of 642 AD, Gurjara Dadda II granted villages in Baroda District to a Brahmin named Surya (Sanskrit: सूर्य , Bengali: সূর্য়) who came from Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh.
