Viśrūtacarita (विश्रूतचरित) is the eighth chapter of the Daśakumāracarita written by Daṇḍin, the famous ancient author, poet, and aesthetician. The Viśrūtacarita has details that has been perceived to contain allusions to the Vākāṭaka dynasty. The Viśrūtacarita provides us with clear evidence that the Vākāṭaka dynasty came to an end under the Western (Vatsagulma) branch, not the Eastern (Nandivardhana) branch.
