'illustrious' Yashovarman, a feudatory, was placed in charge of Selluka Nagara. Near
By A.D. 1019, Bhoja had performed prodigies
of valour and statesmanship. He had overcome the strongest foe in the East; attached the
ambitious young Gangeya to himself; had established a firm alliance with the Chola emperor
of the South; vanquished Jayasimha II, the Chalukya of Kalyani; and annexed a large part
of his territory. The conquest of Konkana was, therefore, a great event and was celebrated
as such throughout Bhoja's empire every year.
