Vāsabhavana (वासभवन) refers to the “private apartment (of the king)”, as mentioned by Uddyotanasūri in his 8th-century Kuvalayamālā (a Prakrit Campū, similar to Kāvya poetry).—The Kuvalayamala (779 A.D.) is full of cultural material which gains in value because of the firm date of its composition. [...] There is a reference to bāhirovatthāṇa-maṃḍava, the Hall of Public Audience, to which all people were admitted and which was known as Darwāre Ām in Mugal times. That was also known as savvāvasara (= sarvāvasara) in Apabhraṃśa texts. On page 11.21 there is a clear statement that the king, after dismissing the public Durbar, entered the private apartment of his palace known as vāsabhavana.
