Sadhānu, son of Devapāla, is the name of a person mentioned in a Jain inscription found at Shergarh. The first half of verse 3 quotes the date of the inscription while its latter half records the obeisance of Devapāla’s sons, viz. Mālhū, Sadhānu and others as well as Nemi, Bharata, etc., who were the sons of Pūnī and Śānti (possibly a brother of Pūnī), to the gods, Śānti, Kunthu and Ara, who (i.e. whose images) had been installed.
The inscription (mentioning Sadhānu) was found found on the pedestal below the central figure of a group of three images of Jain Tīrthaṅkaras in a small temple outside the fort at Shergarh (ancient Kośavardhana). The three Tīrthaṅkaras represented are Śānti (Śāntinātha), Kunthu or Kunthanātha and Ara (Aranātha).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
