India history and geogprahy

Panalā or Prānālaka is the name of a region mentioned in the “British museum stone inscription of the reign of Haripāladeva”. Prānālaka or Panalā is evidently identical with Panhāḷe in the Dāpoli tālukā of the Ratnāgiri District, which was the capital of Southern Koṅkaṇ. (See No. 23, above.)

This stone inscription (mentioning Panalā) was apparently found somewhere is North Koṅkaṇ and is now deposited in the British Museum, London. It records that some miscreants did damage to the channel (nāḍa) near a well belonging to the residents of the village Turubhāmra and dedicated to the god Agnihotra. It is dated in Śaka 1076, the cyclic year Bhāva and the full-moon tithi of Māgha.
