Govindasvāmi (or Govindasvāmin) (c. 800 – c. 860) was an Indian mathematical astronomer most famous for his Bhasya, a commentary on the Mahābhāskarīya of Bhāskara I, written around 830. The commentary contains many examples illustrating the use of a Sanskrit place-value system and the construction of a sine table.

Govindasvāmi who wrote commentary on mahabhaskariya of BHASKARA 1 belonged to Kerala in mahodayapuram. His work govindakriti was a sequel to Aryabhatiya and is lost. His works have been quoted extensively by Sankaranarayana (869 AD) and Udayadivakara (1073 AD) AND Nilakantha.
