Maṇḍāura is the name of a village mentioned in the  “Tehri plate of Chandella Trailokyavarman” (1205 A.D.). Maṇḍāura is modern Madaora in the Lalitpur Sub-division. It is 28 miles south of Tīkamgarh and Tehri and almost at the same distance to the south-east of Lalitpur.

This plate (mentioning Maṇḍāura) was discovered in 1943 by Pandit Govind Sitaram Harshe of the Lakshmipura Mohalla of Saugar, Madhya Pradesh, while he was digging a pit in his house. The charter was issued by Trailokyavarman and records his gift of the village Maṇḍāura (situated in the Vaḍavāri-viṣaya) to Nāyaka Kuleśarman (from Raikaura).
