XVII. Nalanda seal of Vishnugupta (ASI)

Visnugupta (विष्णुगुप्त) is mentioned here as a Paramabhagavata and maharajadhiraja in Nalanda seal of Vishnugupta . He was the son and successor of Kumaragupta III who in his turn was the son and successor of Narasimhagupta. Unfortunately the name of the mother of Visnugupta (and the wife of Kumargupta III) has been lost in the portion of the last line.

The Kalighat hoard 105 contained besides Chandragupta II's coins those of Narasimhagupta, Kumaragupta III and Visnugupta.

His name is clearly based on god Visnu.
