Peḍhāla (पेढाल) is the name of a village mentioned in the “Ṭhāṇā plates of Mummuṇirāja”. Accordingly, “in the village Peḍhāla situated in the Śūrpāraka-ṣaṭṣaṣṭi-viṣaya, the boundaries of which are as follows:—on the east, a Bhambanīvāha field; on the south, the third Thāpaḍa field belonging to the Government; on the west, the dam of the tank; on the north, a deiyalā field”.

Peḍhāla is identical with Pelhār, about 8 miles N.N.E. of Bassein. Uppalapallikā, a hamlet of Vīrāra, seems to have merged itself in Vīrāra.

These copper plates (mentioning Peḍhāla) were discovered in 1956 while digging the ground between the Church and the District Office at Ṭhāṇā, the chief town of the Ṭhāṇā District in Mahārāṣṭra. Its object is to record the grant, by the Śilāhāra Mummuṇirāja, of some villages and lands to learned Brāhmaṇas on the occasion of the lunar eclipse on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Phālguna in the Śaka year 970, the cyclic year being Sarvadhārin.
