Candramaṇḍala is the name of a territory mentioned in the Paṭṭaṇakuḍi plates of Avasara II.—Candramaṇḍala was the territory round modern Cāndor in the Goā State.

These copper plates (mentioning Candramaṇḍala) were obtained from Tonappa Parisa Upadhye, the priest of the Jain basti of Paṭṭaṇakudi, who claims that they have been preserved as heirloom in his family. The inscription refers itself to the reign of the Śilāra (i.e. Śilāhāra) king Avasara II, ruling from Balinagara. The inscription is dated in the expired Śaka year 910 (expressed in words), the cyclic year being Sarvadhārin, on Monday, the fifth tithi of the bright fortnight of Kārttika.
