Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Chavda Kingdom or Chapa dynasty also known as Gujar Chaparana was an ancient Hindu Kshatriya dynasty which ruled northern Gujarat from 746 AD to 942 AD. It is stated in Bombay Gazetteer that Chavdas/chapa were Gurjars. Historians such as Vincent Arthur Smith, Peter N. Stearns, William Leonard Langer also mentioned that Chapas or Chapotkatas were one of the ruling clans of the Gurjars. Historian Vincent Arthur Smith states in his book "White Hun' Coin of Vyaghramukha of the Chapa Dynasty of Bhinmal" that Chapa, Cahuda, Chavda, Chavotaka and Chapotkata are identical. Mr. Jackson regards Chapa as being the original form, Chapotkata a sanskritized variant, meaning 'strong bowman'.show more
