Asanga Sharman

Asanga Sharman or Asangasharman (Sanskrit: आसङ्गशर्मन , Bengali: আসঙ্গশর্মন ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 654 CE in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. His father's name was Indrasharman.

In 654 CE, Asangasharman migrated1 from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh to Udaipur region of Rajasthan. This is recorded in the Bhavihita Grants in 654 AD (Harsha Year 48) of Bhavihita who was the successor of Devaganga and belonged to the early Guhila family (Gahlot dynasty) of Kishkindapura, a locality near Udaipur region of Rajasthan.
