Bhojakaṭapura (भोजकटपुर) or Bhojapura was an ancient capital city of Vidarbha (modern Berar).—The expression Daṇḍakyabhoja in the Brāhmaṇas may indicate that the Bhojakaṭa was either included within or within the reach of Daṇḍaka. It is clear from the Mahābhārata list that Bhojakaṭa (identical with Elichpur) was distinct from Bhojakaṭapura or Bhojapura, the second capital of Vidarbha (modern Berar). In the Khila Harivaṃsa (cf. Viṣṇu Purāṇa) Bhojakaṭa is expressly identified with Vidarbha.
