Mādhavārya (fl. 1182 A.D.) is the name of a brāhmaṇa mentioned in the “Kolhāpur stone inscriptions of Bhoja II”. Accordingly, “... after purchasing it for the purpose of the gift from Nemaṇa and Lakṣmaṇa, sons of the Mahattara Mādhavārya and grandsons of Uddhavārya of the Kāśyapa-gotra”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Mādhavārya) is said to have been found in the enclosure of the temple of Mahalakṣmī at Kolhāpur. It records the grants made by Bhoja II at his camp at Valavāḍa for the augmentation of his own kingdom. It is dated on the Uttarāyaṇa Saṅkrānti, on Tuesday, the fourth tithi of the bright fortnight of Puṣya (i.e. Pauṣa) in the expired Śaka year 1104, when the cyclic year Śubhakṛt was current.
