Upyalikā is the name of an ancient locality mentioned in a Sanskrit inscription found at Belavā, Dacca District (Bangladesh) that was issued from Vikramapura. It records a grant of land in the village of Upyalikā situated in the Kauśāmbī-aṣṭagacha khaṇḍala in Adhaḥpattana-maṇḍala in Pauṇḍra-bhukti, made by the king in favour of a Brāhmaṇa named Rāma devaśarman of the Sāvarṇa-gotra, who was a resident of Siddhala in North Rāḍhā (although his family hailed from Madhyadeśa) and was in charge of the king’s Śāntyāgāra.
