India history and geogprahy

Padmaṭa or Padmaṭadeva is the name of an ancient king, as mentioned in the “Plate of Padmaṭadeva” (tenth century A.D.). Padmaṭadeva was the son of P. M. P. Desaṭadeva (Desaṭa) and Mahādevī Padmallādevī, the grandson of P. M. P. Icchaṭadeva (Icchaṭa) and Mahādevī Siṅghūdevī, and the great grandson of Saloṇāditya and Mahādevī Siṅghuvalidevī.

This inscribed copper plate (mentioning Padmaṭa) is preserved in the temple of Yogabadarī (one of the Pañcabadarī) at Pāṇḍukeśvar (Pāṇḍukeśvara). The date corresponds to some day in the 25th regnal year of king Padmaṭadeva (first half of the tenth century A.D.). It records the grant of several pieces of land situated in Drumatī which formed a part of the Ṭaṅgaṇāpura-viṣaya as well as in Yośi.
