1) Vijayāditya (विजयादित्य).—King Vikramāditya I was succeeded by his son and grandson Vinayāditya and Vijayāditya respectively, from A.D. 681-c. 696 and 696-734. Facts recorded in Mayalur copper plate grant of Prince Vijayāditya draw our attention on this point that under the orders of his father Vikramāditya I, after having reduced the army of Kāñcipuram to non-entity (avaṣṭabhya), he proceeded further to conquer Kamera-Pārasika-siṃhaḷādi dvīpādhipa... Which is this island “Kamera”?. Fleet identifies it, on the basis of the mention of “kavera” in Vakkaleri plates of Kīrtivarmā II, as an island in the Kāverī valley. But Dr. S. Nagarāju does not accept Fleet’s identification because to him Kamera is Cambodia, “the land of the Khmers”.
2) Vijayāditya or Vijayādityadeva, son of Gaṇḍarādityadeva, is the name of a king from the Śilāhāra dynasty, according to the “Bamaṇī stone inscription of Vijayaditya”. Accordingly, “Goṅkala (son of Jatiga) had a son (named) Mārasiṃhadeva; his offspring was Gaṇḍarādityadeva. His son, the illustrious Vijayādityadeva”.Source: Shodhganga: The significance of the mūla-beras (history)
Vijayaditya II (r. AD 848) is the name of a king from the Eastern Chalukya Dynasty (AD 624).—The Eastern Chalukya King Vijayaditya II built one hundred and eight temples in his kingdom as a thanksgiving to Siva for his victories in one hundred and eight battles.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
