The Sadratnamala is a Keralan work on jyotisa, of the tantra type, in
six chapters.  It was composed in 1823 by Sankaravarman of Katattanat
(1800--38).  He was a prince, also known as Appu Tampuran, and belonged
to the royal house of Tampuran in North Malabar.  The Sadratnamala was
published with auto-commentary in the Malayalam monthly Kavanodayam,
vol. 16, 1898, Calicut.
