TAMRESVARI

The Chutiya dynasty claimed descent from Bhismak, the father of Rukmini, consort of Sri Krishna. One Birapal, a descendant of
the Bhismak line was ruling at Sonagiri. He had no children and therefore his queen Rupavati offered penances to Kubera, the God of Wealth, to bless them with a child. Kubera appeared in the form of her husband and had coition with her. Then she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. He was named Gaurinarayan.

When he came of age, he succeeded his father in 1244 A.D. and assumed the name Ratnadhvajapala. He was a great conqueror and the Chutiyas living in hills and the Raja of Kamata acknowledged his supremacy. He then turned his arms towards the kingdom of Gaur and sent emissaries to the king demanding the tokens of his friendship.
