Mention the public welfare works undertaken by Harsha for his people.


Harsha was a benevolent ruler. He built temples, chaityas, vihars, dharmashalas, schools, etc. Harsha used to give away his wealth and belongings – clothes, ornaments, etc., collected during the last five years. He would then request his sister, Rajshree, to give him clothes to wear. This was repeated after five years at the time of Megha Mela at Prayaga.
