India history and geogprahy

Mandaraja is the name of a viṣaya (province) mentioned in the “Prince of wales museum plates of Mummuṇirāja”. This viṣaya comprised the territory in the vicinity of Dive Āgar.

These copper plates (mentioing Mandaraja) were handed over to the Curator (Archaeological Section, Prince of Wales Museum, Bombay) by one Hasan Razak. Its object is to record the grant, by Mammuṇirāja, of the village Ki-icchitā (Mandaraja-viṣaya) to twelve Brāhmaṇas residing in the agrahāra of Brahmapurī. The grant was made on the occasion of a lunar eclipse which occurred on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Bhādrapada in the Śaka year 971, the cyclic year being Virodhin.
