Vaidyanātha refers to the presiding deity (lord) of Darbhāvatī, according in the “Parel stone inscriptions of Aparāditya II”. Darbhāvatī is modern Ḍabhoī in the former Baroḍā State. The temple of Vaidyanātha situated there was well known in ancient times. Several grants made to the god are known. (also see Burgess and Cousens, Antiquities of Ḍabhāī (A.S.I. Report, Vol. II)
This stone inscription (mentioning Vaidyanātha) was found at the village Māhavalī near Kurlā in Greater Bombay. It records the grant by the Śilāhāra king Aparāditya (II) of twenty-four drammas, in favour of the divine Vaidyanātha of Darbhāvatī. It is dated on the Paurṇimā of Māgha in the Śaka year 1108, the cyclic year being Parābhava.(Source): What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras
