The Kalachuri Era or Chedi Era was a Hindu System of year numbering started by the Abhira King Isvarasena(Ishwarsen) in which the year numbering statrted at some  time from 248-250 CE 

  • Started        248 CE
  • Last            13th


The German scholar f Kielhorn suggested that the system began in September 248, the year that began with the month of Asvina. It was first used in Gujarat and Maharashtra (Particularly Northern Maharashtra) from where it spread to Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh where it was used until the 13th century CE. Some sources cite an early Kalachuri era founded in Mahishmati through its ruler Maharaja Subandhu who could be an ancestor to the Kalachuris.
