Jayasiṃha (जयसिंह) or Jayasiṃha Siddharāja (1094-1143 C.E.) was a patron of Hemacandra (1088-1173 C.E.), the famous Jain author who has contributed a lot to the study of Sanskrit Prosody by way of writing his monumental work Chandonuśāsana. Hemacandra received the patronage of Jayasiṃha Siddharāja and his successor Kumārapāla of Anhilvid of Gujarat.

The grant of Jayasiṃha I who began to rule from 633 A.D., records that in his fifth year (638) he granted the village of Puloṃbūra in the Guddavāḍi viṣaya to Rudraśarman son of Śivaśarman and grandson of Dāmaśarman. In Mādhavavarman’s grant it is Śivaśarman son of Dāmaśarman that gets the same village. So it is clear that the Polamūru grant of Mādhavavarman is separated from the grant of Jayasiṃha by at least one generation.Source: Archaeological Survey of India: Śaiva monuments at Paṭṭadakal
Jayasiṃha (जयसिंह).—It is quite likely that King Jayasiṃha was a vassal of Kadamba kings. When the latter began to weaken, taking the benefit of the situation, probably, Jayasiṃha might have declared his independence. His son was Raṇarāga, whose son was Pulikeśi (Pulakeśin) or Polekeśi I, the real architect of the realm. The history of Calukya kings begins with his accession to the throne.
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.
