Laṣaṇa Vaṅgaka (fl. 1162 A.D.) is mentioned in the “Bassein stone inscription of Mallikārjuna”. Accordingly, “These repairs have been caused to be made by those two. The work has been (executed) by Laṣaṇa Vaṅgaka, son of Mahadugiva Jhā. By (the same) two a well has been dug at their preceptor’s place, Loṇavāṭaka in (the territorial division of ) Paṭālasaka included in the viṣaya of Kaṭaṣaḍī has been donated to Laṣaṇa Upādhyāya. This religious gift has been given for the penance and happiness (of the donor)”.

It is dated in the Śaka year 1083, on Monday, the fifteenth tithi of the dark fortnight of the month Puṣya, the cyclic year being Vṛṣa.
