gives A.D. 746 as the date of Vanaraja's installation, while A.D. 765 (V.S. 821 Vaishakha
Shukla 2) is given in Vicharashreni as the date of the foundation of the city. Vanaraja is
stated to have lived for one hundred and nine years.
dates given in the legends relating to the Chavadas must, therefore, in the light of
available evidence, be left as irreconcilable. The date A.D. 700, for the fall of
Panchasara, is obviously wrong. In A.D. 700, Kanauj was ruled by Yashovarman, the patron
of poets Bhavabhuti and Vakpati; Ama and Mihira Bhoja lived long after him.
The Prabandhas are not unanimous about the parentage of
Vanaraia either. The Puratana-prabandha samgraha makes him the son of Chamunda.7
