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. When Sapādalakṣa was occupied by Mlecchas (Shahhabuddin Ghori), he came to Dhārā in Malwa where he studied under one Mahāvīra. He was patronized by Arjuna Varman, king of Malwa and his successors,. Later he also settled at Nalakacchapura in the territory of Malwa.
