rendered his eastern frontier safe, he entered into an alliance with Rajendra Parakesari,
the emperor of the South. Strengthened by this great diplomatic triumph, he invaded the
dominions of the Western Chalukyas of Kalyani. First, he marched to the west to suppress
the revolt of Kirtiraja, the Chalukya feudatory of Lata, who on Munja's death, had chosen
to ally him self with his old chief. The rebel was vanquished; Lata was subdued.8
Bhoja then marched on Aparajita or Ari Kesari, the Shilahara king of
Konkana, the most formidable feudatory of the Western Chalukya Jayasimha II.
