India history and geography
Āvaḍi is the name of a hamlet mentioned in the “Balipattana plates of Raṭṭarāja”. Accordingly, “... an orchard of areca-nuts was also given to him as a means of livelihood of a Brāhmaṇa named Chāṭhavaiya, (son of?) Kuṃvaraiya, grandson of the Brāhmaṇa Sañjhaiya, residing in the hamlet named Āvaḍi, situated to the west of the agrahāra village Palaūre, for (the religious merit of) his grand-daughter Annaṇā...”.
These copper plates (mentioning Āvaḍi) were in the possession of Prof. S. R. Bhandarkar and was issued from Balipattana (the capital of Raṭṭarāja). It records certain gifts made by Raṭṭarāja to Saṅkamaiya, son of the Brāhmaṇa Nāgamaiya. It is dated in the Śaka year 932 on the occasion of the Uttarāyaṇa Saṅkrānti, which fell on Sunday, the 1st tithi of the dark fortnight of Puṣya (i.e. Pauṣa), the cyclic year being Sādhāraṇa.
