Nimbarasa or 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 Nimbarasa) 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.
