Chudasama is the name of an ancient dynasty of Saurashtra (now in Gujarat, India).—Chudachandra, also known as Chadrachuda or simply Chuda, was a legendary king and the founder of the Chudasama dynasty of Saurashtra (now in Gujarat, India). [...] The bardic accounts are unanimous in ascribing the origin of the Chudasama to Chudachandra, a Rajput of the Samma tribe then ruling at Nagar-Samai or Saminagar (now Thatta, Sindh, Pakistan); and they also agree that before his arrival in the peninsula, Vala Ram was the ruler of Vamanasthali (now Vanthali).

It is almost certain that Chudachandra reigned at Vamanathali, and that he founded the rule of the Chudasama dynasty in Saurashtra at the close of the ninth or the start of the tenth century or possibly a few years previously. According to bards and traditional dates, he succeeded around 875 CE.
