Suvarṇavarṣa (सुवर्णवर्ष) or Gōvindarāja (IV) is mentioned in the Janjirā plates (set I) of Aparājita.—“Then there sat on the throne the younger brother of Amōghavarṣa (II), the illustrious king Gōvindarāja (IV) (known as) Suvarṇavarṣa, who rescued royal fortune even as Hari (in his Boar incarnation) lifted the earth, and who, being of great might and having an invincible and well equipped army that delighted all good people, was Purushōttama (Viṣṇu) (himself), who bears the excellent Nandaka (sword) and the unfailing Sudarśaṇa discus. Then (there reigned) for a long period Amōghavarṣa (III), the uncle of Suvarṇavarṣa (Gold-rainer, i.e. Gōvinda IV), the younger brother of Nityavarṣa (i.e. Indra III), ridding (his) kingdom of troublesome people by his austerities and adventurous spirit”.

These copper plates (mentioning Suvarṇavarṣa) were discovered by one Bala Tukaram, while digging in the compound of his house at Chikhala-pākhāḍī, a part of Muruḍ Janjirā in the Kolābā District of the Mahārāṣṭra State.The grant was made on the mahāparvan of the solar eclipse which occurred on Sunday, the fifteenth tithi of the dark fortnight of Śrāvaṇa, when the sun was in the zodiacal sign (rāśi) of Siṃha in the cyclic year Vijaya and the expired Śaka year 915.
