[Baleyavattana in India history glossaries]

Baleyavaṭṭana is the name of a village mentioned in the “Kolhāpur stone inscription of Gaṇḍarāditya”. Barnett identified Baleyavaṭṭana with Baliapaṭṭam in the Chirakkal tālukā of the Malbār district, but it is more likely to be the place of the same name (Balipattana) which was the capital of the Śilāhāras of South Koṅkaṇ, and which has already been shown to be modern Khārepāṭaṇ in the Ratnāgiri District.

This stone inscription (mentioning Baleyavaṭṭana) is on the right side of the temple of the Jaina Tīrthaṅkara Pārśvanātha near the former Śukravāra gate of Kolhāpur. It records certain taxes and dues levied by the Trading Corporation of the Vīra-Baṇañjas and certain merchants and representatives of towns. It is dated on the fifth tithi of the dark fortnight of Kārttika in the Śaka year 1058, the cyclic year being Rākṣasa.
