Nimbadeva is the name of a person mentioned in the “Kolhāpur Śeṣaśāyī temple inscription of the reign of Gaṇḍarāditya”. Nimbadeva, who constructed the caityāgāra of Ādinātha, is identical with Nimbarasa who constructed the Rūpanārāyaṇa-basadi of Pārśvanātha near the Śukravāra gate in Kolhāpur. He was a lay disciple of Māghanandi-muni, the religious disciple of Kulachandra, who belonged to the lineage of Koṇḍakunda.

This inscription (mentioning Nimbadeva) is incised on some beams of the maṇḍapa of the shrine of Śeṣaśāyī in the back yard of the great temple of Mahālakṣmī at Kolhāpur. It records the construction of the temple (caityāgāra) of Āditīrtheśvara (i.e. Ādinātha) evidently at Kolhāpur. It contains no date, but as it belongs to the reign of Gaṇḍarāditya, it is evidently of the first half of the twelfth century A.D.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
