India history and geogprahy

Cāṭasa Visaladeva (fl. 1137 A.D.) is the name of a person mentioned in the “Rānjalī stone inscription of Haripāladeva”. Accordingly, “For (his) maintenance 10 drammas were donated by Cāṭasa Visaladeva in the Śaka year 1059, the (cyclic) year being Prapiṅgala”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Cāṭasa Visaladeva) was discovered several years ago in a field near the Nālā-Sopārā station of the Western Railway. It records the donation, by a royal charter, of an orchard in the village Rānjalī situated to the west of the seashore. It is dated earlier in the Śaka year 1059, the cyclic year being Piṅgala.
