Divākaraiya (fl. 1049 AD), the son of Siddhapaiya, is mentioned in the “Ṭhāṇā plates of Mummuṇirāja”. Accordingly, Divākaraiya is mentioned amongst fourteen Brāhmaṇas living together, hailing from Karahāṭaka (Karahāṭa), as receiving a gift of several villages. He is associated with the Bhāradvāja gotra (clan)

These copper plates (mentioning Divākaraiya) were discovered in 1956 while digging the ground between the Church and the District Office at Ṭhāṇā, the chief town of the Ṭhāṇā District in Mahārāṣṭra. Its object is to record the grant, by the Śilāhāra Mummuṇirāja, of some villages and lands to learned Brāhmaṇas on the occasion of the lunar eclipse on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Phālguna in the Śaka year 970, the cyclic year being Sarvadhārin.
