A.D. 806-7, the indomitable cavalry of Saurashtra under Chalukya Bahukadhavala, supporting
Nagabhata's army defeated the army of Karnataka. In the wars of his overlord, he also
fought against the Pala kings of Bengal.
father, whose name cannot be deciphered in the inscription, was a feudatory Chalukya ruler
of Saurashtra. His grandfather was Kalla. Kalla, therefore, may be accepted as the founder
of the Chalukya dynasty in Saurashtra in the middle of the eighth century immediately
after the destruction of Valabhi. If this surmise is correct, Kalla would be a
contemporary of Nagabhata I.
