Paṇḍitarāja (पण्डितराज) is the teacher of Jānī Mahāpātra (2nd half of 17th century): the son of Jānī Jayadeva, grandson of Nīlakaṇṭha. Jānīmahāpātra was a Gurjaragauḍa of Melatavāla family. As the manuscripts of his works are found in Bikaner, probably he was a native of Rajasthan. Paṇḍitarāja is identical with Jagannātha Paṇḍitarāja and lived in 17th Century.
