Somapura Mahavira is one of the five great monasteries that stood during the Pala period in ancient Bengal and Magadha. These monasteries formed a network understate supervision and a system of coordination. Through the Pahapur excavation, it was found out that the Second Pala king, Dharmapala, built the great Somapura Mahavira. This was realized from the clay seals and inscriptions discovered in the excavation site.
