India history and geogprahy

Nāraṇanāyaka (fl. 1154 A.D.), bearing the official title mahāpradhāna, is the name of a minister of king Mallikārjuna, according to the “British museum stone inscription of the reign of Haripāladeva”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Nāraṇanāyaka) was apparently found somewhere is North Koṅkaṇ and is now deposited in the British Museum, London. It records that some miscreants did damage to the channel (nāḍa) near a well belonging to the residents of the village Turubhāmra and dedicated to the god Agnihotra. It is dated in Śaka 1076, the cyclic year Bhāva and the full-moon tithi of Māgha.
