MANDAR HILL

It may be noted that a number of other places within Bhagalpur district have also been suggested as the site o f that ancient university of Vikramshila, by scholars like Cunningham, Dr. Satischandra Vidya Bhusan, N.L. Dey, A.P. Banerjee Shastri and others.Eventually the Palas had become, as is well known, the rulers of Vanga and Gauda, an area actually comprising the whole of what is now East and West Bengal. Anga, too, passed into their hands. Champa was probably the capital of Gauda for some time. This appears from the study of the Jainagar inscription.

Whatever it be, it is clear that, under the Palas, Anga desha had an era ofprosperity and a revival of culture. The Bhagalpur copper plate of Narayana Pala indicates that this monarch had recovered north Bengal and Bihar from the hands of the Pratihara king Mahendra Pala (c. 885-910 A.D.), who had previously defeated him. An inscription dated the sixth year of the reign of Gopala IT, who 6d succeeded Narayana Pala, has been found at qJajimpara in Malda district (West Bengal) and it refers to a victorious camp of Gopala 11 at Ghataparbatika.

Ghataparbatika is traditionally associated with Bateshwarsthan at Patharghatta, near Colgong, which is now once again accepted as the site of Vikramshila University. Later the Sena kings also had their impact on Anga.
