Vigrahapala II

Vigrahapala II (960 - 988 CE)was the successor to the Pala king Gopala II, and ninth ruler of the Pala line reigning for 22 years. He was succeeded by the famed Mahipala.[1]


During his reign, the Pala Empire was reduced to Bihar. From the east of Bengal, the Candra king, Kalyanachandra conquered the Kamboja capital in Gauda as well as Kamarupa. These conquests were a fatal blow which severely weakened the Kamboja Palas, laying the groundwork for the Pala resurgence under his successor, Mahipala.
