Indra Sharman

Indra Sharman or Indrasharman ( Sanskrit: इन्द्रशर्मन , Bengali:  ইন্দ্রশর্মন ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 620 CE in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh

In 654 CE, Indrasharman's son 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.
