India history and geogprahy
Viṣṇu Upādhyāya (fl. 1137 A.D.) is the name of a person mentioned in the “Rānjalī stone inscription of Haripāladeva”. Accordingly, “Viṣṇu Upādhyāya, who has emigrated from Māhara and is (now) staying at the town of Śūrpāraka is the religious owner of the orchard at Rānjalī”.
This stone inscription (mentioning Viṣṇu Upādhyāya) was discovered several years ago in a field near the Nālā-Sopārā station of the Western Railway. It records the donation, by a royal charter, of an orchard in the village Rānjalī situated to the west of the seashore. It is dated earlier in the Śaka year 1059, the cyclic year being Piṅgala.(Source): What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as 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.
