India history and geogprahy

Rānjalī is the name of a village mentioned in the “Rānjalī stone inscription of Haripāladeva”. Rānjalī lies about four miles (6.44 km.) to the south-east of Sopārā (Śūrpāraka).

This stone inscription (mentioning Rānjalī) was discovered several years ago in a field near the Nālā-Sopārā station of the Western Railway. It records the donation, by a royal charter, of an orchard in the village Rānjalī situated to the west of the seashore. It is dated earlier in the Śaka year 1059, the cyclic year being Piṅgala.
