Bhojacampū (भोजचम्पू) or Campūrāmāyaṇa refers to one of the works ascribed to King Bhoja, according to Bisheshwar Nath Reu.—King Bhoja of Dhārā, one of the greatest rulers of India, ruled  from 1018 to 1060 A.D. He was great in the art of Government and war, but still greater in the art of peace. He had earned immortal fame as a great patron of poets and men of letters and a mass of legends has grown about his name. He is reported to be the author of more than three dozen works [i.e., Bhojacampū]. [...] Śrī Viśveśvara Nātha Reu has laboured very hard in his treatise on ‘Rājā Bhoja’ (publsihed by Hindustani Academy) in collecting all the available material on the subject to give an account of the life and works of Bhoja. He has given a list of the following thirty-four books ascribed to Rājā Bhoja of Dhārā [i.e., Bhojacampū]
