A branch of the Kalachuri family which established itself in the Sarayūpāra country is known from two records. One of them is a stone inscription found in the Buddhist ruins at Kasiā (ancient Kuśīnagara) where Gautama Buddha entered the Mahāparinirvāna, while the other is a copper-plate grant discovered at Kahla, a few miles to the north of the Ghōgrā (ancient Sarayū) in the Dhuriāpār parganā of the Gorakhpur District. The copper-plate grant contains three dates, viz., 1031,1077 and 1079 A.C., the details of which work out quite regularly. The stone inscription is, unfortunately, very sadly mutilated in the lower portion. If it contained any date, it is now lost for ever; but on the evidence of palæo-graphy, it can be referred to the 10th century A.C. The two places Kasiā and Kahla where these records were discovered are only about 40 miles distant from each other. Prima facie, therefore, the two Kalachuri ruling families mentioned in them should be related to each other, if not identical; but no points of contact have yet been noticed.1 To facilitate comparison, the genealogies mentioned in the two records are given below



1D.R. Sahni remarked in his edition of the Kasiā inscription in the Ep., Ind., “This is the only record so far known of the branch of the Kalachuri family to which it belongs.” Following him, H.C. Ray calls this branch ‘Kasiā Kalachuris’ to distinguish it from the other branch which he names ‘Kahla
Kalachuris’. See D.H.N.I., Vol. II, 742.
2Verse 26 of the Kasiā inscription which mentions this lady is almost completely obliterated. so
