Madanapur or Madanapura is the name of a city mentioned in the “Semrā copper-plate grant of Paramardideva” (1162 A.C). Madanapura (Madanapur), which still retains its old name, is the find-spot of Pṛthvīrāja’s inscriptions; it is about 38 kms. to the south-east of Dudāhī. Madanapura [is also] known after the tank and after the king Madana, i.e., Madanavarman.
These plates (mentioning Madanapur) were found at Semrā: a town in the Chatarpur District of the Bundelkhand region (formerly the state of Bijāwar) of Madhya Pradesh. They were issued by Paramardideva to record the confirmation of a grant, from his camp at Sonasara, for the sake of the increase of his own and his parent’s merit and fame.
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.
