In the country of Kamboj there was a king named Yashovarman. He was a religious minded ruler, arid happiness prevailed in his kingdom. But the king had become old and had no children”
King Yashovarman Kamboj probably belonged to Pre-epic era: (1400/1300 BC).
The Kamboja and Gandhara kingdoms, being located in the extreme Uttarapatha of Madhyadesha or Aryanvarta, the Madhyadesha writers were not as familiar with these extreme kingdoms as they were with interior ones. Hence we have limited information on the ‘personal names’ of the Kamboja/Gandhara kings but especially about Kamboja kings as the Kamboja kingdoms were located at the extreme, in Central Asia, even beyond Gandhara. So the Kamboja kings has simply been addressed as ‘Kamboj’ (a tribal name) by the Aryavartan writers….as if this ‘Kamboj’ was their personal name. (Panini).These were the Kamboja Kings mentioned in the Mahabharata: а

Chandravarma Kamboja is the first Kamboja king mentioned by name in the Mahabharata. He appears to have been an ancient and very powerful ruler of the Kambojas. He finds mention in the Adiparva section of the Epic poetry|epic where he is stated to be an Asura or a demonic ruler (See main entry candra in Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary) [https://students.washington.edu/prem/mw/c.html].Mahabharata styles Chandravarma as an incarnation of Daitya Chandra, the foremost among the powerful sons of goddess Diti.
The Mahabharata reference also implies that this Chandravarma was extremely handsome and illustrious king of the Kambojas.
In Brahmanical allegories, sons of Diti are called Maruts. They are all said to be great warriors. One Marut is stated to have even conquered the gods. Obviously, this Marut might have been the so-called Daitya Chandra, whom the epic styles as the foremost among the sons of Diti.
Since Chandravarma of Kambojas is described as an incarnation of this Daitya Chandra, it is also obvious that Kamboja Chandravarma may indeed have been an illustrious and mighty warrior.
The Kamboj/Kamboh community traditions claim one Chander Burman as a god, and the royal ancestor of the Kambojas. Kamboj traditions also claim that certain raja Sodakhsh was a descendent of god Chander Burman, and had sided with the The Kurus |Kauravas against the Pandavas, in the prolonged war of Kurukshetra |Kurukhetra. These facts were collected at the end of ninetieth century by one British ethnographer H. A Rose.
It is obvious that the Sodakhsh of the Kamboj traditions refers to great Sudakshina of Mahbharata fame (Glossary of Tribes, Vol I, pp 444-445, H. A. Rose)
The present Kamboj community claims to have descended from god Chander Burman.
God Chander Burman of the Kamboj traditions can easily be identified with Asura king Chandravarma, referenced in the Adiparava of Mahabharata.
This traditional evidence thus points at the Iranian affinities of the Kambojas.
After the colonization of Khandavaprastha by the Pandavas, a magnificent palace was raised by Danava Maya, for the Pandava king Yudhishtra.
To celebtrate the occasion, Yudhishtra had sent invitations to all the principal Kshatriya princes, royal Achariyas and other salient personages of the time to grace the inauguration of the imperial palace.In the list of salient royal Kshatriya (Kshatriya.shrestha) princes so referenced, is a reference to one: Kaamboja.rajah.Kamatha i.e Kamatha, the prince of the Kambojas.
This king ‘Kamath Kamboj’ was contemporary of Yudhistra, and he graced Yudhishtra court during the inaugration ceremony of ‘Indraprastha city’ raised by Pandavas in Khandava-bana.(Ancient Kamboja, People & the Country, 1981, Dr J. L. kamboj, p 52)
It is believable that king Kamath Kamboj was the king of KASHMIR. with whom, Mahabali ‘Karana’ had to fight at Rajapura or Rajaori.
However, no further information on this prince is found at any place in the Mahabharata after this reference.

The fourth prince of the Kambojas referenced in the Mahabharata is the younger brother of the illustrious prince Sudakshina Kamboja. In the Epic poetry|epic, this prince is simply addressed as Kamboja, but according to Pandit Bhagavadatta Sharma, the real name of the prince was Parpakash Kamboja (Bharata ka Itihaas, p 161).
Prince Kamboja had also participated in the destructive war of Kurukshetra, and had fought ferocious duels on Kaurava's behalf. Like a true Kshatriya, the Kamboja prince had fought for the The Kurus |Kurus with dedication, valor, honor, loyalty, sacrifice and in full compliance of the war ethics. After brave Sudakshina fell on fourteenth day of the war, the young prince had taken over the supreme command of Kamboja division (Some Kshatriya Tribes, p 246, Dr B. C. Law).
On 17th day of the war, prince Kamboja also fell a magnificent martyr to Kuru cause at the hands of great Arjuna (MBH 8/56/111-114)
Like his elder brother Sudakshina, the young prince is also portrayed as very tall and exceedigly handsome, having a face as beautiful as the full moon and eyes resembling lotus petals. As this Kamboja prince fell fighting, it appeared as if a tower of gold or a summit of the golden Meru |Sumeru had collapsed [https://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/m08/m08056.htm].
The fact that the young prince had survived 16 days of destructive war shows him to have been an accomplished warrior.
