Maharaja Vishnuvardhan (महाराजा विष्णुवर्धन) was a Jat ruler of Malwa. He was son of Yasodharman. He had defeated the Huna ruler Mihirkula in 528 AD. Yasodharman's defeat of Huna army in 528 checked the Huna expansion in India. As a symbol of victory, there is an inscription on pillar of Maharaja Vishnuvardhan in Bayana town in Bharatpur district, which is known as ‘Bhim Lat’. This pillar shows the extent of his rule up to Bayana. According to CV Vaidya the period of Jat rulers in Malwa is 500-641 AD.
