Source: What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras

Mahādevaiya (fl. 1060 A.D.), bearing the official title (senior) bhāṇḍāgarasena (treasury officer), is mentioned as an officer of king Māṃvāṇirāja in the “Ambarnāth temple inscription of Māṃvāṇirāja”. Māṃvāṇirāja is evidently identical with Mummuṇi, the youngest brother of the Śilāhāra king Chittarāja.

This inscription (mentioning Mahādevaiya) is engraved on a stone girder of the temple at Ambarnāth, about 7.24 km. south-east of Kalyāṇ in the Ṭhāṇā District. It is dated Śaka 982, ninth tithi of the bright fortnight of Śrāvaṇa. The object of the inscription seems to be that the temple of Ambarnāth, which had been commenced by Mahāmaṇḍaleśvara Chittarājadeva was completed by some royal officers during the reign of Māṃvāṇirāja.
