Amoghavarṣa (I) (अमोघवर्ष) of the Rāṣṭrakūṭa line of kings is mentioned in the Paṭṭaṇakuḍi plates of Avasara II.—“The son of Jagattuṅga (Govinda III) was Amoghavarṣa (I), who was like fire to the forest of his enemies; then Akālavarṣa (Kṛṣṇa II)”.

Amoghavarṣa (II) is also mentioned, “After Indrarāja (III) came his son Amoghavarṣa (II), who had a very handsome form. He had a younger brother (named) Govindarāja (IV), who, like Vasanta (spring), was an abode of the sentiment of love, and, like Kṛṣṇa, was (always) surrounded by a multitude of excellent women”.

Amoghavarṣa (III) is also mentioned, “After Indradeva there flourished his younger brother Amoghavarṣa (III), who was dear to the Earth, and was the lord of all feudatory princes, being attractive by his royal qualities. Thereafter, there flourished the king, his son Kṛṣṇarāja (III), who became well-known by his birudas such as Vanagajamalla (the Wrestler with wild elephants)”.

Amoghavarṣa (III) is also mentioned in the Janjirā plates (set I) of Aparājita.—“Then (there reigned) for a long period Amoghavarṣa (III), the uncle of Suvarṇavarṣa (Gold-rainer, i.e. Govinda IV), the younger brother of Nityavarṣa (i.e. Indra III), ridding (his) kingdom of troublesome people by his austerities and adventurous spirit. The illustrious Amoghavarṣa (III) shrines, having destroyed all wicked (people)−(he) who, looking respendent, raised the bow of (his elder brother) Indra and with the sharp edge of his sword (and) the assistance of princes, put an end to the terrible battle in the capital of the illustrious Rāṣṭrakūṭa (prince) Karkara, caused by a conflict of wicked people, even as a beneficent cloud removes all dust, and with the rainbow appearing high up (in the sky), extinguishes wild fire caused by friction of bamboos by means of hail-stones and lightning”.

Also, “Therefore, when that king Baddiga (Amoghavarṣa III) went to the abode of Śambhu to make it look brighter (with his fame), though it was already very bright, the girl in the form of royal fortune went over to Kṛṣṇarāja (III), having bathed, as it were, under the showers from golden vessels. ”
