Rajatarangini tells us that Gopalavarmma began to reign under the direction of his mother Sugandha as he was yet a boy. He reigned for two years. The dynasty of Shangkaravarmma being now extinct, the queen Sugandha at the request of the subjects began to reign herself. She built a town named Gopalapura, a temple Gopalamatha, and a god Gopalakeshava ; and another town named after her. Sugandha reigned for two years with the help of her Ekānggas.
