Ṭiharī (modern Tehri) is the name of a village mentioned in the  “Tehri plate of Chandella Trailokyavarman” (1205 A.D.). Ṭiharī is the same as modern Tiharī or Tehri-Bānapur, near Tīkamgarh. Tehri was formerly included in the Orchhā State of Bundelkhand, but now forms part of Vindhya Pradesh. It is situated at the eastern end of the State near the borders of U. P.

This plate (mentioning Ṭiharī) 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).
