Ambhojaśambhu is the name of a Brāhmaṇa mentioned in the Khārepāṭaṇ plates of Raṭṭarāja (śaka year 930).—Ambhojaśambhu, whose disciple Ātreya received the present grant, is described as having belonged to the Karkaroṇī branch of the Mattamayūra clan.

These copper plates (mentioning Ambhojaśambhu) were found by a Brāhmaṇa of Khārepāṭan, a town in the Devagaḍ tālukā of the Ratnāgiri District. The inscription refers itself to the reign of the Śilāra king, Māṇḍalika Raṭṭarāja. As his predecessors were loyal feudatories of the Rāṣṭrakūṭas, it gives first the genealogy of that family from Dantidurga to Kakkala. The inscription is dated, in lines 41-42, on the full-moon tithi of Jyeṣṭha in the śaka year 930, the cyclic year being Kīlaka.
