Shrivaccha

Shrivaccha (Sanskrit: श्रीवच्छ, Bengali: শ্রীবচ্ছ ) was a Brahmin (Brahmana) who lived around 905 CE in Radha (south West Bengal).

In 938 CE, Shrivaccha's son Bhattaputra Jatarupa migrated[1] from Radha (south West Bengal) to Sambalpur region of Odisha. This is recorded in the 938 AD Vakratentali Charter of Janamajeya Mahabhavagupta I (935 - 970), who belonged to the Somavamsa family which ruled over the area around Sambalpur region of Odisha.
