Barua is the name of a river mentioned in inscriptions from Baṅglā (1281 A.D.). The battle referred to in the inscriptions probably lasted only for a day. A large number of soldiers on Vīravarman’s side must also have lost their lives ; but there is no record of that besides vague claims on behalf of the partisans of Gopāla in the records under study. The battle is stated to have been fought on the banks of the river variously called Valuvā, Volukā, Valuā, Valūbā, Vālukā and Valuka which is no other than the modern Barua.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
