India history and geogprahy
Ghorapaḍa (घोरपड) is the name of a river mentioned as lying on the western boundary of Vaḍavalī, according to the “Vaḍavalī grant of Aparāditya I”. Vaḍavalī still retains its ancient name and is situated six miles north of Ṭhāṇā.
These copper plates (mentioning Ghorapaḍa) were in the possession of a blacksmith at Vaḍavalī near Ṭhāṇā. Its object is to record the grant, by Aparāditya, of the village Vaḍavalī in the Karakūṭa-viṣaya and also of a field in the village Mora in the Vareṭikā-viṣaya. It is dated on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Kārttika in the Śaka year 1049, the cyclic year being Plavaṅga.Source: What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras
