In India, a unit of mass = 1/10th of a bhára. If the adhára = hára = 200 palas, taking the pala as a gold weight of about 27.21 grams makes the adhára roughly 5.44 kilograms.



200 palas, or nishkas, consititute one hára.

According to Dánayogíśwara, the tenth of a bhára is called adhára, which is consequently syonymous with hára as a term for a specific quantity of gold.
