Sanjaya is a Shaivite ruler from Central Java , Indonesia . It is known to us by two inscriptions.

The first, called Canggal, dated 732 , says that Sanjaya, raka (lord) of Mataram , founded a shrine dedicated to Shiva with a linga , on the hill of Bukit Ukir (located 10 km east of the temple Buddhist Borobudur .

The second, called Mantyasih (found 15 km north of Borobudur), dated 907 and issued by King Balitung (898-910), contains a list of kings who preceded Balitung from Sanjaya.

Curiously, the successor of Sanjaya on this list is a raka i Panangkaran (Lord Panangkaran) which is also associated with the foundation in 778 of the temple of Kalasan , also Buddhist. This lord of Panangkaran was therefore a king of the Buddhist dynasty of Sailendra 1 .
