Tribhuvanacandra or Tribhuvanachandra is the name of a Jain ascetic, mentioned in the “Herle stone inscription of Gaṇḍarāditya”. Tribhuvanachandra and Nāgacandra-Sāiddhāntika. They were evidently the sadharmas of Bālacandra. Accordingly, “The world incessantly praises the ascetics Tribhuvanachandra, Nagachandra-Saiddhantika and the excellent ascetic Balachandra, who is eulogised by the wise”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Tribhuvanachandra) was found at Herle, a village, about 11.25 km. west of Hātakaṇangale in the Kolhāpur District. It records the grant of one matter of land in Eḍenāḍa and a garden to the Tīrthaṅkara Chandraprabha in the Basadi. It was made on the occasion of a lunar eclipse in Śaka 1040, when the cyclic year was Vilambi.
