Bhāskaranāyaka (fl. 1185 A.D.), father of Lakṣmaṇanāyaka, is the name of a person mentioned in the “Ṭhāṇā stone inscription of Aparāditya II”. Diskalkar identified Lakṣmaṇanāyaka with the Mahāpradhāna Śrī-Laksmaṇaiyaprabhu referred to in the Vaḍavalī grant of Aparādityadēva I.

This stone inscription (mentioning Bhāskaranāyaka) was apparently found in the Ṭhāṇā District. It records that Lakṣmaṇanāyaka, son of Bhāskaranāyaka, the Mahāmātya of Aparāditya, made gifts to the god Somanātha in Saurāṣṭra. It is dated in the Śaka year 1107, Sunday, the 15th tithi of the bright fortnight of Caitra, the cyclic year being Viśvāvasu.
