Full name: Daṇḍanātha Nārāyaṇa
Gender: Male
Activity year: 1120 c.

Daṇḍanātha Nārāyaṇa was the author of a commentary on Bhojadeva's grammatical work, the Sarasvatīkaṇṭhābharaṇa. T. R. Chintamani thought that he might be the Daṇḍanātha (minister of justice) of Bhojadeva himself. Alternatively, he suggested that this Daṇḍanātha Nārāyaṇa was identical to the patron of Kavirāja Paṇḍita, author of the Pārijātaharaṇakāvya. The latter belonged to the Kadambas around Vanavāsi in about 1120 CE.
