Paravai is an archaeologically important site situated in Madurai-taluk (Madurai district, Madras), known for inscriptions regarding the ancient history of India. For example, at Paravai there is a damaged stone built into the waste weir of the tank which seems to record the gift of income from certain taxes (kaḍamai). The record is signed at the end by Būpālarājan.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
