Prabhu Dādapaiya (fl. 1024 A.D.), bearing the official title sarvādhikārin, is the name of a minister of king Chittapaiyadeva, according to “Bhoighar plates of Chittaraja”. Accordingly, “... and his Sarvādhikārin, the illustrious Prabhu Dādapaiya are shouldering the burden of the cares of administering his whole kingdom (entrusted to them) by his favour”.

These copper plates (mentioning Dādapaiya) were found by Mr. Natu while digging in his orchard at Bhoighar in the former Janjirā State (now Muruḍ Mahāl of the Kolābā District).
