Dadda I founded the Gurjara kingdom at Po-lu-ka-cha-po (Bharigukacchapa or Bhrigukaccha, i.e., Baroach).[1] Dadda II gave protection to one of the Harsha's vanquished adversaries.[2] Dadda III, the Gurjara Pratihara ruler of Bhrgukachha, was a devotee of Siva, wheres his forefathers from dadda I onwards worshipped the Sun. Dadda III is also known to have made a grant in honor of that luminary.[3] Although Dadda I, ruler of Nandol, was a friend of Maitrakas but Dadda-III, who for unknown reasons became hostile to them, wrestled Baroach from Maitrakas.

In the earliest ephigraphical records of the Gurjars of Broach, Dadda is described as belonging to the Gurjara-nrpati-vamsa i.e. it stands for the Gurjar family. Gurjaratra, Gurjara-bhumi or Gurjara-mandala would thus only mean land or Mandala of Gurjars (Gujars or Gujjars).[4]
