Gupta (king)

Résumé
Gupta (Gupta script: Gu-pta, fl. late 3rd century CE) was the founder of the Gupta dynasty of northern India. He is identified with king Che-li-ki-to (believed to be the Chinese transcription of "Shri-Gupta"), who, according to the 7th century Chinese Buddhist monk Yijing, built a temple near Mi-li-kia-si-kia-po-no (Mṛgaśikhāvana) for Chinese pilgrims. Name Gupta is not attested by his own inscriptions or coins, although some seals and coins have been wrongly attributed to him.
