Govindabhaṭṭa (fl. 1191. A.D.) is the name of a person mentioned in the “Kaseli grant of Bhoja II”. Accordingly, “...by pouring water on the hand of Govindabhaṭṭa of that place, the gift being exempt from all taxes, free from all molestation and not to be interfered with by royal servants even with a finger, and lasting as long as the moon and the sun endure”.
This copper plate (mentioning Govindabhaṭṭa) was in the possession of a Brahmaṇa of Sātārā, who lent it to James Grant. It records the grant, by Bhoja II, of the village Kaśeli for providing food daily to twelve Brāhmaṇas. It was made at the request and for the prosperity of the prince Gaṇḍarāditya, on the holy occasion of the Dakṣiṇāyana-saṅkrānti, which occurred on Thursday, the fourth tithi of the bright fortnight of Āṣāḍha 1113 Saka years had elapsed and the cyclic year Virodhakṛt was current.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
