The city of Valkha is mentioned in Indore Plate of Svāmidāsa, as well as in the Indore Plate of Bhuluṇḍa and in Sirpur Plate of Rudradāsa. As suggested by R.B.K.N. Dikshit, it may be identical with Bahal in the Chalisgaon taluq in East Khandesh district, Maharashtra State. According to Dr. Mirashi, however, Valkha is same as Vaghli, about six miles north-east of Chalisgoan in East Khandesh district, on the Bombay-Bhusaval line. Vaghli is an old place containing three ancient temples and some old Sanskrit inscriptions. One of these inscriptions describes Vaghli as the capitalof a feudatory royal family which originally hailed from Valabhī.
