History

Tej Ram Sharma [2] writes ....The regnal period of Vainyagupta witnessed a considerable decline in the power and prestige of the Imperial Guptas. The rise of the ruling dynasty consisting of Dharmaditya, Gopachandra and Samacharadeva in Central and South-West Bengal in the first half of the sixth Century A.D., possibly points to the extirpation of Gupta rule from Bengal excepting the bhukti (province) of Pundravardhana (North Bengal).[3]
