Bhoja, Raja


Bhoja, Raja
(?-1060)
   The renowned Paramara king who ruled over Malwa from his capital Dhar for 40 years, 1020-1060. He is known in Indian folk tradition as a just king and a great patron of the learned and virtuous. A large number of poets and scholars were connected with his court. Some of Bhoja's own literary works have survived. Bhoja was often at war with the neighboring kingdoms of the Latas, Chedis, and Chaulukyas. It was in a struggle against the united forces of the Latas and the Chedis that he ultimately succumbed in 1060.
