1) Kulacandra or Kulachandra is the name of a muni mentioned in the “Kolhāpur Śeṣaśāyī temple inscription of the reign of Gaṇḍarāditya”. Nimbadeva, who constructed the caityāgāra of Ādinātha, is identical with Nimbarasa who constructed the Rūpanārāyaṇa-basadi of Pārśvanātha near the Śukravāra gate in Kolhāpur. He was a lay disciple of Māghanandi-muni, the religious disciple of Kulachandra, who belonged to the lineage of Koṇḍakunda.
