Maṇalakara (मणलकर) is the name of a fort town and birth-place of Āśādhara (1178-1243 C.E.), the famous Jain author who  contributed to Sanskrit prosody through his text entitled Vṛttaprakāśa. Āśādhara was born to Sallakṣaṇa and Śrītatnī at the fort town called Maṇḍalakara in the Vyāghreravāla Vaiśya family.
