India history and geogprahy

Divākarabhaṭṭa Upādhyāya (fl. 1150 A.D.) is the name of a person mentioned in the “Agāṣī stone inscription of Haripāladeva”. Accordingly, “... to Brahmadevabhaṭṭa Upāddhyāya, the son of Divākarabhaṭṭa Upādhyāya, who is (himself ) the son of the illustrious Govardhanabhaṭṭa Upādhyāya, piously with the pouring out of water, on the great auspicious occasion of the Uttarāyaṇa-saṅkranti”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Divākarabhaṭṭa) bearing this inscription was found near Āgāṣī in the Bassein tālukā of the Ṭhāṇā District.
