Kholla or Golla is a term referring to an administrative region during the rule of Kannaḍa-speaking Śilāhāra dynasty (r. 765-1215 A.D.).—The deśa (administrative unit) was there divided into nāḍas or khollas. Thus the territory round Kolhāpur was known as Eḍenāḍa. It had several khollas or gollas. Deśas, viṣaya and khollas are sometimes named together with the numbers of the villages comprised in them. The viṣayas and khollas comprised nagaras or towns, and grāmas or villages. Very few towns in the kingdoms of the Śilāhāras find mention in their inscriptions.
