Devalanāyaka (fl. 1137 A.D.) is the name of a person mentioned in the “Rānjalī stone inscription of Haripāladeva”. Accordingly, “... an orchard at Rānjalī in the western part of the seashore, which is situated in Śūrpāraka-Two Thousand, has been granted by a royal charter with the approval of all people headed by the illustrious Devalanāyaka”.
This stone inscription (mentioning Devalanāyaka) 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.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
