Ananatapāla or Anantadeva (fl. 1095 A.D.) is a king from the Śīlāra dynasty, according to the “Kharepāṭaṇ plates of Anantadeva I”. Accordingly, “When that king (viz., Mummuṇi) attained the body of excellent fame (i.e. died), Ananatapāla, the son of Nāgārjuna, the princely jewel in the Śīlāra family, the Sovereign in respect of political wisdom, who has a pure form on account of his performance of highest duty, became king”.
These copper plates (mentioning Ananatapāla) were in the possession of Mr. Ramachandra Sivram Desai of Khārepāṭaṇ in Ratnāgiri District, Mahārāṣṭra. It is dated on the first tithi of the bright fortnight of Māgha in the Śaka year 1016, the cyclic year being Bhāva.
