Vajjaḍadeva (वज्जडदेव) or Vajjaḍa of the Śilāhāra line of kings is mentioned in the “Bhadāna grant of Aparājita”.—Accordingly, “The son of that king (Goggideva) was the illustrious king Vajjaḍadeva, whose happy sleep was disturbed by (the lamentations of) the wives of the enemies overpowered and killed by him. The festivity of his charity does not even now come to an end, —(the festivity) which is uproarious with the shouts of Panegyrists gladdened by his gifts... To him was born the son, the illustrious Aparājita, (also known as) Mṛgāṅka, who is unceasingly engaged in bestowing gifts, is valorous, conversant with political wisdom and an abode of glory”.

These copper plates (mentioning Vajjaḍadeva) were found in 1881 with the headman of Bhere, a village about ten miles north of Bhivaṇḍī, the chief town of the Bhivaṇḍī tālukā of the Thāṇā District in the Mahārāṣṭra State. The grant was made at Sthānaka on the occasion of the Karkaṭa saṅkrānti (called) Dakṣiṇāyana, which occurred on the fourth tithi of the dark fortnight of Āṣāḍha in the expired Śaka year 919, when the cyclic year was Hemlamba.
