Ajuna

Ajuna ( Sanskrit: अजुन , Bengali : অজুন ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 490 CE in   Sihor, Gujarat. His father was Guhadhya and his brother was Mankasvamin.

In 490 CE, Ajuna along with Mankasvamin migrated[1] from Sihor in Gujarat to Saurashtra region in Gujarat. This is recorded in the 490 AD Dharasena I Copper Plates of Maitraka Dharasena I who belonged to the Maitraka dynasty that ruled in Gujarat and Saurashtra (Kathiawar) from the 468 AD to the 767 AD.
