No. 332 of Crīkūrmam shows that Jagannātha Dava of the Eastern Çalukya family was a feudatory of this king. No. 302 mentions a grant of one Gharaļamaji Çri-rāma-sõnāpati, who is described as the military chief of Kaliņga (kalimga-rakşapāla), breaker of Kumāļi (kumāļi-bhamjam), slayer of Kancāla (Kamcāla-çiraç.chēdana) reducer of Konddu (Kömddu-marddana), a lion to Gaņàra-dāmu Kõrama (Gandradāmu. korama simuya-maina), and lastly the own servant and minister (amāitya) of Bhānu Dāva. Except Kaliŋga, none of the other names I am able to identify.

No. 324 records a remarkable grant of Vira-Bhānu-Dāva III, by which he gave to the temple of Crikūrmam images of Vira-Narasimha Dēva and Gangāmbikā holding lamps. From this is it to be inferred that Gaŋgāmbikā was the mother of Bhānu Dāva III and not Kāmala Dēvi as stated in the copperplates ?
