Aparārka II (fl. 1240 A.D.), father of Keśideva II, is mentioned in the “Caudharapāḍā stone inscription of Keśideva II”. Accordingly, “There is the illustrious king Keśideva, son of King Aparārka (II), who is a gem adorning the illustrious family of the Vidyādharas (and ) who is well-known in the family of Jīmūtaketu. Having seen the mode of the administration of him who is a store of immeasurable and holy valour, the divine Earth does not remember (with regret ) (the ancient) kings such as Rama”.

This inscription (mentioning Aparārka) was found on the outskirts of the village Caudharapāḍā, near Lonāḍ in the Bhivaṇḍī-tālukā of the Ṭhāṇā District. It records the donation of Brahmapurī to various Brāhmaṇas and also a donation for the maintenance of the worshippers of the god Śiva. It is dated Śaka 1161, or tuesday, the 24th January A.D. 1240.
