Mayūrakhaṇḍī is the name of an ancient locality, identified with Morkhaṇḍ, and mentioned in the “Kaḍaba plates of Prabhūtavarṣa” (9th century A.D.).—Govinda III is stated to have resided at the time of the grant in his victorious camp at Mayūrakhaṇḍī. This is the same place from which the Vaṇi-Diṇḍorī and Rādhanpur grants of Govinda III. are dated, and it has long ago been identified by Professor Bühler with the modern Morkhaṇḍ, a hill-fort in the Nāsik territory.

These copper-plates (mentioning Mayūrakhaṇḍī) were found at Kaḍaba, situated in the Tumkūr district of the Mysore State. It records that the king Prabhūtavarṣa, (i.e. Govinda III.) presented the village of Jālamaṅgala to the Jaina muni Arkakīrti, on behalf of the temple of Jinendra at Śilāgrāma. It is dated to the 24th May A.D. 812.
