India history and geogprahy

Loṇavāṭaka is the name of a village mentioned in the “Bassein stone inscription of Mallikārjuna”. Loṇavāṭaka may, however, be Lonāḍ in the Bhivaṇḍi-tālukā of the Ṭhāṇā District.

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)”.

This inscription (mentioning Loṇavāṭaka) is reported to have been found at Bassein and is now deposited in the Prince of Wales Museum, Bombay. It mentions the Rājaguru Vedaśiva and eulogises one Bhopaka Vyomaśiva. 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.
