India history and geogprahy

Duhāgrāma is the name of an ancient city mentioned in the “Pedda-Dugam plates of Śatrudamana” (5th century A. D.). Duhāgrāma seems to be no other than modern Pedda-Dugam (literally, ‘the bigger Dugam’) which is the find-spot of the record.

These plates (mentioning Duhāgrāma) were discovered in the course of digging the earth for the foundation of a house at the village of Pedda-Dugam in the Narasannapet Taluk of the Srikakulam District, Andhra State. It was issued to the villagers headed by Brāhmaṇas and others, residing at the three localities called Duhāgrāma, Vasuvāṭaka and Govāṭaka.
