Paḍivase is the name of a village mentioned in the “Rānvaḍ stone inscription of Someśvara”. Rānvaḍ, where the inscribed stone was found, is near Uraṇ, but no place like Paḍivasē can now be traced in the neighbourhood.

This stone inscription (menitoning Paḍivase) was found at Rānvaḍ near Uraṇ in the Kolābā District. It records the grant by the King (Rāula) of the proceeds of some fields in Uraṇa-Paḍivase (i.e. Padivase near Uraṇ), on the occasion of a Sūrya-parvan (a holy occasion sacred to the Sun). It is dated on the fifteenth tithi of the dark fortnight of Caitra in the Śaka year 1181, the cyclic year being Siddhārtha.
