Ṭhākuraiya (fl. 1053 A.D.) is mentioned in the “Dive Agar plate of Mummuṇirāja”. Accordingly, “The illustrious King Mummuṇideva lays down the settlement for the learned Brāhmaṇas endowed with wisdom, who are prominent among the sixteen representatives (mahattarakas) residing at Āgara-dīpaka, in the presence of principal royal officers such as... the Purohita (family-priest), the Sāndhivigrahika, the illustrious Ṭhākuraiya...”.

This copper plate (mentioning Ṭhākuraiya) was discovered at Dīve Āgar in the Śrīvardhana-tālukā of the Kolābā District in North Koṅkaṇ. It is dated on the fifth tithi of the dark fortnight of Āṣāḍha in the Śaka year 975, the cyclic year being Vijaya. Its object is to record a vyavasthā (settlement) in respect of the village Dīpakāgara together with its three hamlets, viz. Voritalī, Katila and Kalaija.
