Pitāmaha Paṇḍita is the name of a Brāhmaṇa residing in Brahmapurī according to the “Prince of wales museum plates of Mummuṇirāja”. Accordingly, “Koko-Paṇḍita, the son of Pitāmaha Paṇḍita, who is of the Śāṇḍilya gōtra and the Kauthuma śākhā, and who has hailed from the Gauḍa country”.
These copper plates (mentioing Pitāmaha Paṇḍita) 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.
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.
