Govindabhaṭṭa (fl. 1191. A.D.) is the name of a person mentioned in the “Kaseli grant of Bhoja II”. Accordingly, “ 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.
