Nimbara is the name of an ancient king from Kārttikeyapura, and grandfather of Lalitaśūradeva, according to the “Plate of Lalitaśūradeva” (853-854 A.D.). King Nimbara, who is not endowed to the imperial titles and may have been the founder of this royal line, is said to have been devoted to the god Dhūrjaṭi (Śiva) and the goddess Nandābhagavatī, i.e. Durgā, after whom one of the principal peaks in the Kumaun Division is called Nandādevī.

This inscribed copper plate (mentioning Nimbara) is preserved in the temple of Yogabadarī (one of the Pañcabadarī) at Pāṇḍukeśvar (Pāṇḍukeśvara). The date is estimated 22nd December 853 A.D. and it records the grant of some land which was in the possession of a person named Denduvāka and was lying within the jurisdiction of the administrative unit called Thappalasāri forming a part of the viṣaya or district of Kārttikeyapura.
