India history and geogprahy

Pāṇīvāḍa (पाणीवाड) is the name of a village mentioned as lying on the eastern boundary of Ki-icchitā, according to the “Prince of wales museum plates of Mummuṇirāja”. Pāṇīvāḍa, one of its boundary villages, may be identical with Pāṇadare in the neighbouring mahāl of Mhasālā.

These copper plates (mentioing Pāṇīvāḍa) were handed over to the Curator (Archaeological Section, Prince of Wales Museum, Bombay) by one Hasan Razak. Its object is to record the grant, by Mammuṇirāja, of the village Ki-icchitā (Mandaraja-viṣaya) to twelve Brāhmaṇas residing in the agrahāra of Brahmapurī. The grant was made on the occasion of a lunar eclipse which occurred on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Bhādrapada in the Śaka year 971, the cyclic year being Virodhin.
