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”.
