This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

PREFACE. 



Id this volume the inscriptions of the Hoysala kings, as might be expected, 
largely predominate, the Hassan District being in the heart of their kingdom, 
and containing their capital city. But many of them are models of composi- 
tion by authors of repute, examples taken from which are quoted in standard 
works on the language. From the fresh information here supplied, with what 
has appeared in previous volumes, a detailed account is obtained of all the 
public and palace events in the reigns of this distinguished and purely 
Mysorean dynasty of kings. Interesting too are the accounts of the Maley&la 
merchants who traded on a regal scale and imported horses in ships by sea 
for the royal stables. 

The Ko&g&lvas are here for the first time brought to notice. They mark the 
farthest extension on the west of the Ch&la invasion of the 11th century. 
Their minister for peace and war in 1079 was Nakularyya, who boasts of 
being able to write in four languages. It is not impossible that this was the 
famous Lakula, founder of the P&supata sect in Gujarat, who has been traced 
from Arcot in 1020, to Belgami in Mysore in 1036, and eventually to Baroda. 
Of the ChangSJvas we learn something new and important from finding them 
in possession of Seringapatam in 1252. 

In the inscriptions of the Mysore kings it is curious that the Channar&ya- 
pattana fort is said to have been built for (or in agreement with) the Bijapur 
Sultan* A record also deserving of attention is that which sets forth the 
succession of the Mysore R&jas as received at the time when Krishna R&ja 
Wodeyar took over the reigns of government from the Dewan Pttr?aiya. 

Among items of special interest that may be mentioned are the memorials 
of public suicide on the death of royalty. Thus, when the Ganga king Niti- 
mfcrgga died two separate persons are stated to have entered the fire in 
consequence. But the most elaborate is that ot the self-sacrifice of the 
prince Lakshma and his wife on the death of the Hoysala king Vira-BalUJa 
II, commemorated on a pillar at the Hoysalfesvara temple. Another incident 
which may be noticed is the ordeal undergone by the sh&nabhdg of Arkalgtid 
to clear himself of the accusations brought against him.

PIX7ACZ. 

The illustrations are by Namassiv&yam Pillai of my office, but the half 
tones of the Hajebid temple were produced by Wiele and Klein of Madras. 
I regret that one side of the western face has not come out well. The Bfilftr 
temple is from a photograph by Colonel Dixon in about 1865. Of the views 
of the Kdd&r&vara temple, the first is from one taken either by the Rev. D. 
Sanderson or by Mr. Butcher, and the second from one by H. H. the late 
Mah&r&jab of Mysore. 

No praise is needed for the excellent printing of the Basel Mission Press, 
but I fear this book has become more bulky than was expected, from preserv- 
ing wide margins with an eye to appearance. For it will be seen how often 
the line in the Eannada text has been exceeded by just one letter or two letters.

The inscriptions of the Hassan District number altogether 1086. Of these, 
144 have already been published separately in Volume II, Inscriptions at

As in the other volumes, the inscriptions are passed in review in this 
Introduction, as far as possible, in chronological order, under the foregoing 
heads, attention being directed to such points as appear to call for special 
notice.

Kadambas. 

The earliest record of the Eadambas in this volume is contained in the 
Bannahalli plates (Bl. 121). These were discovered in about 1888 by some 
person when digging in K&danhalli attached to that village, which is now in 
the B61ttr taluq '>. The grant is one made in the 7th year of his reign by 

! > The plates have been published by Dr. Kielhorn (£>. /nd., VI, 16) from impressions by Dr. 
Fleet to whom I bed lent tbsm. With regard to bis translation, I would point ont with all 
deferenee that gandharwa has here to bs taken in its meaning of A horse", and not as "the art of 
music". Yatsaraja is always cited as a standard of horsemanship. The fao-similc there published 
shows a number of little rings or oirolei at the ends of the strokes in many letters, especially the 
bead strokes. But these are merely minute knobs or bumps oaused by the bulging of the metal 
where the graying tool has been pushed to a stop, and are no part of the letters consciously so 
formed. An example of a real ring or circle intentionally formed occurs in Kr. in line 5, towards 
the left of the bottom of the letter. The others are CTidently accidental and not the same. The 
fao-similc in the present Tolume shows the characters without any manipulation.

Krishnavarmma, son of Sirhbavarmmi, who was the son of Vishnuvarmma, 
who was the son, by the daughter of Kaikeya, of Krishnavarmma. The details 
given of the date do not suffice to determine the period. Dr. Kielhorn is of 
.opinion, from the forms of one or two letters which he specifies, that the 
inscription can hardly be placed earlier than the 7th century A. D. l) But I 
do not see how this can be reconciled with the fact that the Eadambas lost 
their independence in the 6th century. In my Introduction to Vol. VI of this 
Series I have shown how the above succession of kings can be fitted on to that 
given in the Talgunda pillar, through what we learn from the Birtir plates 
(published in that volume). The first Krishnavarmma of the present in- 
scription is identified with the Krishnavarmma of the Birur plates from being 
the performer of a horse-sacrifice, and the father of Vishnuvarmma ,) . If 
the latter was the king slain by Ravivarmm&'J, they can be shown to have been 
contemporaries and cousins by the arrangement proposed in my Introduction 
above referred to. 

The Kadambas are introduced with the usual statements that they were 
"purified by meditation on Svami Mahasena and the group of Mothers, were 
of the Manavya-gdtra and Haritiputras, and fully versed in the views they 
had adopted on the sacred writings' 1 . This latter difficult phrase is translated 
by Dr. Kielhorn, " studying the requital (of good or evil) as their sacred text", 
and he has a long note (loc. cif) giving his reasons for so rendering it. " If this 
interpretation be correct,' 1 he adds, "I cannot help thinking that the epithet 
alludes to the history of the Kadambas as told in the TaJgund inscription. 
So long as the Kadambas were private Brahmans, it was one of their chief 
duties to study the sacred texts; in other words they were svddhydya-charchd- 
pdrds. When they had. become kings, it was an equally sacred duty for them 
to requite good and evil; to do so was what the study of the Veda had been 
to them before; and thus, having been svddhydya-charchdpdrds, they then were 
pratikrita-svddhydya-charchdpdrds." 

The grant was made on the advice of Haridatta, a Sreshthi or jnerchant, 
who, besides being dignified with gbtra and pravara, is said to have been the 
donor of a thousand (or thousands of) cows. It consisted of the village of 
Kolanall&r in the Vallavi-vishaya, given to a Brahman named Vishnusarmma, 
who, in addition to other praises, is said to be a preserver of the perpetual 
sacred fire. There is a village of Kolanalldr mentioned in Ag. 62, under the 
date 1404 A. D., as an agrahara named Sarvvajna-Bhaskarapura, to the 
Brahmans of which a grant was made of the village of Ulenahalli, where the

» In his notice of thU inscription (Kan. Dyn. 290) Dr. Fleet, who §ays that he quotes from his 
own reading, makes a mistake in giring Yisbnurarman as the name of the father, and Krishna- 
Tarman as bis son; the latter being the father and the former the ion.

stone recording it now is. It is situated in the Konan&r hobli of the Arkalgud 
taluq, to the north of the Kiverl river. We also had mention of the village 
of Kolanell&r in the Galigekere plates (Yd. 60) and in the Nitre stone (Chi. 79), 
dated respectively in about 890 and in 1009 A. D. These may be the same 
village. But the Kolanalldr of our present inscription is said to be in the 
Vallavi district. This I am disposed to identify with the Ballavi Seventy 
Mentioned in inscriptions in the HonnSJi taluq of the Shimoga District. It is 
there described as being near the Tungabhadra river and situated in the 
Banavase Twelve Thousand . There is a Nallur to the south-west of the 
Sftlekere in Channagiri taluq, and from No. 51 of that taluq it is evident that 
there was a circle named Eole in the immediate neighbourhood. 

Another Kadamba grant (Bl. 246) of the same reign and in the same 
characters') has come to light in the Benn&r plates, said to be handed down 
in the family of the present owner s) . The contents differ in some singular 
respects from the former. They begin, as do most of the Ganga plates, with 
Jitatn bhagavatd. The svasti is opposite the 3rd line. The opening verse 
praises the king for feeding thousands of Brahmans in the same way as 
Tudbishthira. In the body of the grant, after the usual Kadamba epithets, he 
is described as the fifth king (patichama4dkapdidh) of the Eadambas, the 
dharmma-mahfix&jah vijaya-siva-Krisbnavarmma. His grandfather's name is 
given in the forjn Vishnud&sa. The grant wks made when the king was 
setting out on an expedition from Vaijayanti, in front of (the god) Mah&deva 
of Inguna, on Paushoriukla-pratipadi', and consisted of the village of Palmadi 
in the SSndraka-vishaya 4 ', given to a Brahman named Bhavasv&mi, together 
with a do&abandha l) of six nivarttana. After usual imprecations, a blessing is 
invoked on .D6shar&§ivarmm& f) on account of the grant, and the inscription 
ends with obeisance to Vishnu. 

We have to pass over several centuries to arrive at the next Kadamba 
inscriptions in this volume, and they are on stone. These are TTti 38, Mj. 28, 
and TTn 45, of which only the last is dated, giving us Saka 947 as its period 
(1025 A. D.). The others may be somewhat earlier. 

In the first the name of the king is unfortunately effaced, but he is said to 
be in the residence of Banavase. He conferred a title or bound a crown on 
the grandson of his guru for some display of bravery. In the second the king

IY INTRODUCTION. 

is merely called -Eadambarasa, and he made a grant of land on account of a 
man who fell in fight. In the third, of which a good deal is effaced, the king's 
name seems to be given as Malapa-Raja, and he seems to have bestowed a title 
or crown upon the son of the naj-gavunda of the Manale Three Hundred, and 
given him an estate. The latter was either mounted at the same time on an 
elephant, or else had captured an elephant, for which this was the reward. 
A Manale Three Hundred is mentioned in the Javali plates (Mj. 36, Vol. VI 
of this Series), but "the description there given of its situation places it beyond 
Bellary, far away from Hassan. They cannot therefore be the same, and there 
is a difference also of 275 years between the two inscriptions. But the present 
Manale is no doubt the one mentioned in Hg. 93 (Vol. IV of this Series), dated 
in 1007 A.D., which speaks of the gavunda of Manale coming forth on a raid 
with three hundred men. 

We next have a series of seven inscriptions in Manjarabad taluq connected 
with a Eadamba king named Niti-maharaja. The dates range from 1026 A. D. 
(Mj. 63) to about 1035 (Mj. 66), the latter recording his death with the per- 
formance of the Jaina rite of sarmyasanam. The inscriptions are very short 
and much effaced. In Mj. 61 only lole remains of the name of his residence, 
and mj. 66 contained the name of his father, which is gone. 

The last Eadamba inscription here is Mj, 18 of the date 1095 A. D. It 
belongs to the reign of Tribhuvanamalla Dayasimha-mah&raja, who was the 
youngest of the three sons of Dudda-maharaja, and grandson of Chagi-maharaja. 
He is said to have slain a powerful enemy named Sripala, who had an immense 
army; and he had obtained a boon from the goddess Ekkala. A long account 
is given of his virtues and accomplishments, winding up with the question, — 
Why have another Bharata story? Is not king Dayasimha's history enough? 
The object of the inscription is to record the construction of a tank by his 
mother MSchala-Devi, who was the daughter of king Banki-Balarita. She also 
had a temple built for the god Vasudeva, which she endowed, and established 
an agrahara named Arasiyapura for five Brahmans. 

If this king's father and grandfather preceded him on the throne, as we 
may naturally suppose, the three reigns would fill up the time from the death 
of Niti-maharaja above. No reference is made to Bayal-nad, which was ruled 
by Eadamba kings at this period as we know from the inscriptions in our 
Vol. IV, nor is auy connection apparent between them. The Eongalvas and 
Changalvas separated them. Of these various hill states in the Western Ghats 
in the 11th century, the Kadambas of Bayal-nad or Wainad were apparently 
independent. The Changalvas and Eongajvas by the cognomens they assume 
evidently admit Chdla supremacy. The Kadambas in Manjarabad on the other

hand looked to the Hoysalas and Chalukyas as overlords, in witness of which 
we have Dayasimha's cognomen of Tribhuvanamalla. Other evidence will 
appear farther on that Manjarabad was the point where the Ch61a invasion 
from the south was checked on the western side of Mysore. 

Ganga8. 

The earliest Gaiga inscriptions in this volume belong to the reign of 
Sripurusha (Ak. 176 and On. 208). They are not dated, but may be assigned 
to from 750 to 770 A. D. They are virakal and contain nothing of importance. 
But the second mentions that Nirggunda-arasa was ruling the Nirggunda-n&d 
Three Hundred. This province was situated in the south-west of the Chital- 
droog District, where Nirggunda still exists. It and its rulers are mentioned 
in other inscriptions of Sripurusha, such as the DfivarhaHi plates (Ng. 85, 
Vol. IV) and the Talkad stone (TN. 1, Vol. III). Here also, later, in Ag. 61. 

We next have two inscriptions (Ak. 99 and Hn. 28) of the time of Satya- 
vakya Kongunivarmma Permmadi, the latter dating in 896 A. D. They are 
fragmentary and contain nothing of importance. These are followed by seven 
(see list) of the time of Nitim&rgga which are of some interest. Only Hn. 83 
is dated and falls in 910 A. D., but the king's name and nearly all particulars 
are effaced. Hn. 99 is of his 17th year and Ag. 26 of bis 19th year, both 
without any other date. Ag. 5 and 27 record his death, but with no date. 
Ag. 24, besides calling him Nitimargga, specifically names him as Nanniya- 
Ganga, and states that at the time of an eclipse of the sun in that year (no 
year mentioned) he made a grant of lands as vidyd-ddna to his ayya (or teacher) 
M&khanda-bhat&ra. In Ag. 26 he is called Satyav&kya as well as Nitim&rgga, 
and Ejeyapparasa made a grant for some one who fell in war. Ag. 6, with 
the title Nitim&rgga, styles him R&chamalla and says that he ascended to 
svarga in Kombale. From sorrow for which event a man named R&cbeya 
entered the fire, and the kalndd which had been granted to him by Egeyappa 
was resumed. In Ag. 11 the first part is effaced, but Ereyappa is seen grant- 
ing a kalndd. In Ag. 27 the king is again called Satyav&kya and Nitim&rgga, 
and the cause of his death is said to have been phlegm (or hiccough) sticking 
in his throat when he was on an expedition in which he had acquired as far 
as . .nnanftr. Owing to this event another man Bahiyama entered the fire. 
The death of Nitimargga is the subject of the sculptured representation in 
TN. 91 (Vol. Ill) , which is not dated. Thus far we appear to have only 
six actual dates for Nitimargga, namely, 899 in Kd. 141 (Vol. VI), 906 in 
Xp. 38 (Vol. IV), 909 in Ml. 30 (Vol. Ill) and 910 in Hn. 33 (Vol. V), with 
902 and 909 in the unpublished Nars&pur and Mankunda inscriptions (see

Vol. IV, Intro, p. 1 1). He was thus contemporary with Alfred the Great of 
England, who was also called the Truth-teller, an English Satyav&kya. 

Then come four inscriptions relating to Satyav&kya and Ejeyappa, which 
present tho following difficulties. In Ag. 70 SatyaY&kya's 37th year is made 
to correspond with Egeyappa's 21st year, without specifying any date. On the 
other hand Ag. 61 apparently gives 920 A.D. for the time fif Egeyappa's son. 
Satyar&kya, we know from TN. 91, was Nitim&rgga's son, and Dr. Fleet is 
probably right in reading it as the eldest son. For reasons given in my 
Introduction to Vol. VI, I consider that Ereyappa was another son. If these 
two ruled simultaneously after the elder had been on the throne 1& years, as 
we must conclude from the above, and their father died not earlier than 910 
and more probably in about 915, how are we to find room for them if Erey- 
appa's son's date is 920? This latter Saka date is clear as to the second and 
third figures 43, but the first figure can only be 8, as any other would not 
fall within the period required for a son of Egeyappa. It is not absolutely 
certain to what the date refers, though the obvious conclusion is that it gives 
the time when the grant recorded was made. But this seems impossible. In 
Ag. 36 we have Satyav&kya-Kongunivarmma-Permm&nadi on the throne, when 
the nil-givunda of Alva-n&d made an attack on the Ganga seat (dsana) and 
was killed. In Hn. 185 the Ganga king l) was apparently angry with Ddrayya, 
who is said to be of the PtLrita-vamSa, but may be the same as mentioned in 
Ed. 1 (Vol. VI). Ag. 70 gives Satyav&kya and Ejeyapparasa as joint rulers, 
as above stated. In On. 261 we have Ereyapparasa-Satyav&kya-Permm&nadi 
ruling alone, with the special epithets generally applied to him, which are also 
used in the preceding. In Ag. 61 we have Nitim&rgga's (son) f) Ereyappa- 
Permm&nadi's son Satyavakya-Blra-Permmanadi making a grant in 920, the 
date which has been referred to above. 

Of the remaining Ganga inscriptions HN. 14, without any date, records 
the erection of a temple by Galabbe, the queen of R&cheyarasa, perhaps the 
Bachcheya-Ganga mentioned in the Humcha inscription as a son of Ereyappa; 
and the Richamalla of the Atakfrr inscription (Md. 41, Vol. III). 

The next five belong to the reign of Satyavakya Marasingha Nolamba- 
kul&ntaka, and two of them date in 971. Mj. 67 is an interesting record of 
the king's elder sister Eundana-Sdmidevi. It is engraved in a single line all 
round the pedestal of a metal Jaina image which was discovered while digging 
up the ground of a coffee plantation. On. 262 mentions the king's war with 
R&j&ditya, no doubt the Chalukya prince so named in SB. 38 (Vol. II). 
On. 267 refers to his. fighting with the Nolambas. 

*) The king's name does not begin with Chandra, as appears from the print. Chandra is in a 
lower line some distance away from Sriman, 

*) The expression is Nitimdrggad- Ereyappa. This might possibly be interpreted as Nttimargga- 
Efeyappa, bat we hate already seen that he is styled Ereyappa-Satyarakya.

INTRODUCTION. VII 

KongfUvas. 

The Kong&lvas ruled a kingdom situated principally in the Arkalgud taluq, 
between the K&vSri and Hemavati rivers l) . Their inscriptions date from 
about 1020 to 1100. They were, we may imagine, a branch of the Alva or 
Aluva kings, the main line of which ruled over Aluva-kheda or South Eanara 
from an early period. South from the Kongftlvas were the Chang&lvas (see 
Vol. IV), and we have also mention of Dattalvas (Vol. VI) and in the present 
volume of N&dalvas. 

The best account of the Kong&lvas is contained in their titles as given in 
Ag. 99, though these may only apply to that particular king. They are, — 
entitled to the five big drums, maha-mandal^svara, chief lord of the city of 
Ojeyllr (the early Ch61a capital near Trichinopoly), sun upon the eastern 
mountain the Chdla-kula with twisted top-knot, crest-jewel of the SCLryya-vamsa 
(or Solar race). They thus claim to be in fact Ch61as, but we know that the 
Cb61as imposed their names upon the provinces they conquered, while the 
vassal kings whom they left in the government of them took Ch61a names, as for 
example the Cbang&lvas. But here the Kongalvas go farther and claim actual 
descent from them. The names of the kings in our inscriptions here are,— 

Badiva Kongalva 

Bajendra-Ch&la Prithuvi-mah&r&ja 1022 

R&jSndra-Chdla Kong&Jva 1026 

R&jendra Prithuvi-Kofig&lva-Deva Adatar&ditya 1066-1100 

Tribhuvariamalla»Ch61a Kongalva-Deva Adataraditya .... 1100 

Of the first we have no information except the name. In Mj. 43 and Ag. 76 
we have encounters between the Kongalvas and the Hoysalas. In the former 
the Kong&lva king attacked Nripa-Kama-Poysala (the father of Vinayaditya) 
in 1022, whose life was apparently saved by his general Jdgayya. In the 
latter the enemy is styled the base (munda) Poysala, and KongiUva claims 
to have gained a victory over him at Manni. This was in 1026. From Ag. 99 
and his other inscriptions it is evident that Adataraditya was a Jain. Praise 
is given in this to Prabhachandra-siddh&nta-dSva, who had the title ubhaya- 
siddhdnta^ratndkara', and the king made a chaityalaya for Gandavimukta- 
8iddh&nta-d6va in 1079. The inscription was composed by the minister for peace 
and war, Nakul&ryya, who boasts of being able to write in four languages f) . 

2fAd&lva8. 

Of this family there is only one. somewhat obscure inscription (HN. 17), 
of the date 1141, determined by the mention of the coronation festival of

Vishnuvarddhana's sod N&rasimha. They invoke the protection of Chdla-K&Ia- 
gaja or the god Ch61esvara of their village, and are said to be residents of 
Uddftr, an ornament of the Konga country. Uddftr is the agrah&ra where the 
inscription is, and it is situated in about the middle of the western boundary 
of the Hole-Narsipur taluq. The first member of the family mentioned is 
M&yi-N&d&luva. His eldest son was N&r&ya^a, whose son was Chd}i-N&d&luva, 
whose son was Padman&bha, whose son was M&yi-N&d&)uva. Their authority 
was apparently purely local, and it is not certain that they even had any 
pretensions to royalty. 

Chang&lvas. 

The Chang&lvas were brought to notice in some detail in Vol. IV. In the 
present volume there are a few inscriptions relating to them, one of which 
supplies information that is both novel and interesting. The first is Ag. 65, 
of the date 1090, the reign of Nigalanka-malla M&deyarasa-Chang&lva. This 
is the M&ddvanna of the list in Vol. IV, and the site of this inscription shows 
that the Chang&lva territory was not confined to the south of the Kaverl. 
The next is En. 162 of ? 1104 in which Ball&la-Hoysab, appears leading an 
expedition against Changalva-Deva. Whether Cn. 272 of 1119 refers to the 
Chang&lvas or not it is difficult to say. Then we have Bl. 178, probably of 
the date 1124 f) . In this we find the Hoysala king Vishnu varddhan a. (whose 
victorious career is marked by the epithets Vira-Ganga Vikrfcnta-Chdla Vijaya- 
Nonamba and S&hasa-Kadamba) at war with the hill chiefs, who were assisted 
by Changajva. Having driven the Chdlas out of Mysore, he waar evidently 
reducing to submission those who had been feudatories to them. On. 190 and 
200, of date 1139, refer to the Chang&lva king's purdnika Janarddana-bhatta, 
who, and the Brahmans of the place, obtained grants for the temple the former 
had built at Anati, where the inscription is, from Visbnuvarddhana, who at 
the time was at Bank&pura. In Hn. 60, of 1155, N&rasimha's general B6kana 
is said to have conquered the Changa king's territory. 

But Ag. 63, of the date 1252, is the most important one. It relates to 
Sdma-Ddvarasa and Boppa-Ddvarasa, who were joint rulers, and according to 
the inscriptions in Vol. IV had the cognomen Kul6ttunga-Cbdla. But here 
they appear without it, though they have in one place Tunga-Chola before their 
names. They are represented as possessed of considerable power; for Sdma- 
Dfiva is described as a lion to the deer the KSrala chief Euldttunga-Chdla, a 
submarine fire to the ocean the Kerala forces, and a wild-fire to the forest 
Mukkanna-Kadamba'J; while Boppa-Deva is described as the promoter of Sri-

INTRODUCTION. DC 

Banga; and they are both said to have the royal city Srirangapattana 
(Seringapatam) as their residence, and to be ruling the patta-rdjya or crown 
kingdom. No such iu formation has been met with before. We must conclude 
that the Hoysala king Sdmesvara, who we know left the Mysore country to 
live at Kannan&r near Srirangam in the Chdla country, committed the govern- 
ment of Seringapatam to these Changalva kings. To them the priests, called 
Kailasas, of the R&man&tha temple at Raman&thapura on the north bank of the 
Kaveri, went with the consecrated food and made petition regarding the funds 
of the temple, saying:— We have given 72 buffaloes, whose milk produces 200 
gadyanas, from the interest on which we have been providing for the services. 
The kings seem to have pitied the state of affairs, and in 1245 went to the 
town and had it rebuilt. Thus encouraged, the Kailasas seven years later 
made a similar pilgrimage to the Hoysala king SdmSsvara, to obtain confirm- 
ation of the grant of M&vanflr which they had received from the Changalva 
kings. The result of this was that Somesvara-DSva, with Boppa-Deva, Sdma- 
Deva and their royal children (r&yasa-ktisugal) came with a tetinue to the 
place itself, set up a Nandi pillar in Mavan&r, and this stone Sasana in the 
temple of Ramanatha. This god Ramanatha is said to have been set up by 
Rama himself, together with a thousand beautiful lingas on the bank of the 
Kaveri. Other Rama traditions of this part appear in Yd. 26, 26 and 28 
(Vol. IV), and from Yd. 12 it has been seen that at Chunchankatte in the 
river there is a spot called Sit&'s bathing place. 

The next inscription, Ag. 44, jumps to the time of Virtf-Raja, the son of 
Srikantba-Rajaya, 1579. The representative of /Vijayanagar, Rima-R&jaya, 
granted a pdlaki-utnbali as a marriage gift for Vira-Raja's daughter. 

Ch&lukyas. 

The inscriptions under this head are not properly Chalukyan, and contain 
no information about them. They are merely such early Hoysala inscriptions 
as have in the introduction an acknowledgment of Ch&lukya supremacy, dating 

from 1078 to 1174.

Hoy solas. 

The great bulk of the inscriptions in this volume are Hoysala, as was to be 
expected from this District containing their capital city and being in the heart 
of their kingdom. 

The incident which brought Sala, the progenitor of the family, tathe throne, 
as related in so many inscriptions, was his killing a tiger at a Jina muni's 
exclamation of pay Sala (strike, Sala!), whence they derived their name. But 
the story is told in a variety of ways. Bl. 171, which is the earliest, says that 
when Sala was hunting along the slopes of the "Sahya mountains (or Western 
Ghats), he was astonished to- see a hare pursuing a tiger. Coming along, saying

to himself this is heroic soil, a holj rishi in his fear of the tiger called oat as 
above, and before it could step a span (<jen), Sala slew it with his dagger (gen). 
This is in accordance with the Hoysala crest (see illustration). tTti 65 gives 
snbstantiallj the same account, but omits the hare, and says the muni wanted 
to test Sala's braver/. Ak. 71 says that Sala was prostrating himself to the 
holj jdgindra, who was an adept at incantations, and pleased with Sala he 
resolved to give him an empire. For this purpose be was performing the necessary 
rites to bring the goddess Vasantiki of Sasakapura into his power, when, in 
order by any means to break the spell, she sprang forth in the form of a tiger; 
on which the ydgi uttered the exclamation and Sala killed it with his cane 
{betta). Bl. 112 is to the same effect, but calls it a cane rod (bettava sele). 
Ak. 82 gives sele in the body of the inscription and explains it by betta in the 
margin. Ak. 108 calls it kunchada sele, the rod of the yogi's fan or whisk, 
which is properly a bunch of peacock's feathers. It also adds that he had 
uttered a spell into it. By cane must not be understood a schoolmaster's ferule 
or horseman's switch, but the solid bamboo rod (called danda) of an ascetic °, 
at the top of which in the case of a Jain the kuncha or bunch of peacock's 
feathers might be tied. The only other variation is in Bl. 74 -which calls it a 
ial&ki, properly an iron rod, which is not admissible for a Jain; but it may 
also mean a pointed stick. The seals of some of the copper plates give the 
crest as the tiger and the rod, and this also appears on the coins. 

The earliest inscriptions in this volume are those relating to Nripa-Kama 
Poysa}a, hitherto unknown, whose discovery was brought to light in Vol. VI 
(Introd. p. 14). We there had in Mg. 19 an inscription of his 7th year, without 
any date. In the present volume we have three dated inscriptions relating to 
him. The first is Mj. 43 of 1022 where he appears repelling an attack by 
the Kongijva king. The enemy's general Kannama seems to have singled out 
the king as his opponent, but the Poysala general Jogayya came to the rescue 
by charging against Kannama's horse and killing him, but lost his own life 
too. In Ag. 76 we find the Eongalva king again attacking Poysala, here 
called the base (munda) Poysala, in 1026, and claiming a victory over him in 
a battle at Manni. In Mj. 44, a year later, Nripa-Kama appears as helping 
to oppose some one (the name is gone) who had attacked Banavasi, that is the 
Kadambas. The relation in which this king stood to the rest of the Hoysala 
kings according to their oft-repeated genealogy is made clear by Ak. 167 of 
1 154, and Ak. 141 of 1159, in which it is stated that Vinayaditya was his son 
(Atom taneya), and in Ak. 142 of 1162, in which Vishnuvarddhana is said to 
be his son's son (dtana tafnejyana taneya) f) . In all three he is mentioned

with the usual Hoysala titles. No reason is apparent for bis omission from 
the ordinary genealogy, which proceeds from Sala, the progenitor of the line, to 
Vinayaditya. It may be noted that the inscriptions which introduce Nripa- 
Kama contain no mention of Sala. But if they were identical, the fact could 
not fail to have leaked out in some of the many hundreds of Hoysala inscriptions. 
What relation be bore to Bala, therefore, we have so far no means of determin- 
ing. Bl. 112 say 8 that Sala was the founder of Saiakupura, the birthplace 
of the Hoysalas, which I have identified with Angadi in Mudugere taluq, Eadur 
District (see Vol. VI). 

The inscriptions of VinaySditya generally call him Tribhuvanamalla-Poysala 
and say that he was ruling the Gangavadi Ninety-six Thousand. But Ak. 179 
names him as Binayayta and Ak. 102 a as Vinayayta. The latter says that 
he was ruling from the west to as far as Talakadu (apardseyinde Talakddu- 
varum), and Ak. 87 that he was ruling over hill and dale (maleyum mandatncm). 
Cn. 148 mentions his having the six letters Ra-kkasa Po-ysa-la on his flag. 

This same inscription contains special praises of his son Eyeyanga and of 
his guru Gdpanandi. At the end Ereyanga is represented as ruling the Ganga- 
mandala and making a grant to Gdpanandi. The date of this is 1094. But 
Ak. 102 a says of Ereyanga that at the Chalukya emperor's bidding be caused 
the elder brother to sheatb (his sword) 1} ; the Cholika's king (annate) he caused 
to wear leaves; Nannuge (whoever be was) he caused to write himself down in 
three letters (perhaps 1 annuge, a woman or a coward); and putting a bit into 
(the mouths of) the best of kings between the Hima mountain and SStu, be 
mounted tbem. With the hot rage in Nannuge's breast as the witness of fire, 
and by means of Dhara (otherwise, with the pouring of water), he suddenly 
wedded the goddess of valour i} . As the mandapa was consumed in the burning 
of the Khandava (forest), so the fire of the Poysala king's glory blazed up in 
the Vindhya mountains and seized ? Udhapuram. The only wife assigned to 
him in all the inscriptions is fichala-Devi by whom he had the three sons 
Ballala, Bitti-Deva and Udayaditya. But here his wife is said to have been 
Mah&devi of the Chola family and Suryya-vamsa (or Solar race). She was the 
daughter of IrukkupS-la, younger brother of Pandya, who turned back Bhuvanai- 
kamalla, and seizing his kingdom, himself gave it in person to Tribhuvana- 
malla. This P&ndya was the son of Teja-R&ya. On her mother's side Mah&- 
devi's grandfather was Karkkala-maraya, who was in Tereyftr, like Dasakautha

XII UTTRODUGTION. 

in Lankipura. The only TereyfLr I know is in the north-east angle of the 
Tumkur District. It is frequently mentioned among the conquests of Vishnu- 
varddbana. The queen Mah&d§vi had a tank built, one of her agents for 
carrying out the work being named K&duvitti x) . 

With Bl. 199 of 1101, we bare the first inscription of Ball&la, the eldest 
son of Ejeyanga. He is described as ruling all the lands bounded by Eonkana, 
Alva-khSda, Bayal-n&d, Talak&d, and S&vimale. These were the boundaries of 
Vinayaditya's kingdom (see Ng. 32, Vol. IV). Ballija is described as going 
on a visit to Sosavftr, the birthplace of the Hoysalas, which, as above stated, 
I have identified with Angadi in Mudugere taluq. Angadi is mentioned by that 
name in Bl. 197 of the time of the king Achyuta-Raya of Vijayanagar. Ballala 
next appears in 1 104, Hn. 161 and 162, in the latter leading an expedition 
against Changalva-DSva. His reign probably ended in this year. In BL 58 
he is described as, along with his brother Vishnu, beating down the pride of 
Pandya and seizing the wealth of his kingdom . Also as defeating the army of 
Jagadde^a in Dorasamudra and seizing his treasury together with the central 
ornament of his necklace. 

With On. 169 of 1 106, probably begin the inscriptions of Vishnuvarddhana, 
though here only named Tribhuvanamalla-Poysala. A chief of the Chalukya 
family, Bacharasa, son of Muddamarasa, made a grant of a tank. Hn. 149 
records the foundation of the new Kollapura, Dodda Gaddavalli, and the 
erection there of the temple of Mahalakshmi by a great merchant and his wife 
in 1113. Bl. 68 of 1117, is the first that gives a detailed account of Vishnu- 
varddhana's conquests. First taking into his arms the fortune of the Poysala 
kingdom which he had inherited, he brought all the points of the compass under 
his command, and capturing Talak&du, became the first to the Ganga kingdom 1} . 
He is also said to have burnt the chief city of the Gaiigas, polluted the water 
of the KavSri by throwing the corpses of the enemy into it, so that R&jendra- 
Chdla was driven to use the wells in the vicinity, and delayed the setting in of 
the south wind, because it was stopped by filling the nostrils of the skulls of 
his enemies slain on the banks of the K&verf. Such was the terror he created 
that even Yama was afraid to straighten his mustaches. He made the earth 
tremble with the tramp of his Kambhdja horse, was lord of Gandagiri, split the 
great rock Pandya, burst the hearts of the Tulu kings, destroyed the army of 
Jagaddeva, devoured the fierce elephant Sdmesvara, displayed his valour before 

*> The KfcfaTitti tank it mentioned in Ak.102*. 

,l Cn. 209 ooutains e notice of the capture of Talaka^a. It says that terrified at hearing the 
sound of Hattagage Kete-Nayaka's glittering shield, takiog it for a rambling of the earth or the rolling 
of thnnder, Adiyama, crossing the river from the south side, fled, and at the same moment Kete- 
Nayaka entered the fort of Talakagn behind king VishnaYarddhana. Bl. 171 says that he oaptured 
Talakida, pursued after the army of the Tigulas. and beoame the first to the Ganga kingdom. On 
P&n4ya flourishing his sword, Hoysallia out him down with bis own sword, ami left only half a 
man to^look on in the Tignla's army.

INTRODUCTION. XIII 

Manikya-Devi of the Chakrak&ta throne, brought down the pride of Adiyama, 
overturned the tree Narasimhabrahma, split the skull of king Kala, destroyed 
the serpent Chengiri, broke down the plantain stems the spears of Irungdla, 
shook the mountain Chengiri-Perum&la, set up Patti-Perumala, made Talak&du 
his own, took the Kongu country, protected Nolambavadi, expanded Nila- — 
parvyata, extended Kdlala-pura, uprooted K6vatdr, shook Teriyilr, crossed 
over Vall&r, unchained Nangali-pura, pulled up the door of the Ghats, and 
made Kanchi-pura tremble . The boundaries of his kingdom at this time 
were,— east, the lower Ghat of Nangali; south, Kongu, Cheram and Anamale; 
west, the Barakandr and other Ghats of Konkana; north, Sarimale. Praises 
follow of the queen Santala who is said to have been born in Balipura. The 
inscription records the consecration of the great temple at Vfelapura %) or Bfilftr 
where the king was living, dedicated to Vijaya-Narayana under the name of 
Chenna-Kesava, who is described with an immense number of epithets. Bl. 16 
repeats much of the same and says that Santala-DSvi with the approval of 
king Vishnu assumed the crown (pattamam dhariyisidal). Its date (not 
mentioned) may be the same or earlier, and it is not complete. * 

Bl. 147, dated 112], contains much of the same matter, but states that 
the king was in the residence of Ddrasamudra (the modern Halebid), and that 
Kfitamalla (apparently a merchant) erected there a Siva temple named after 
the" patron of his family Vishnuvarddhana-Poysalesvara. This stone is at 
Ghattadahalli, close to Halebid on the east, and might possibly refer to the 
great Hoysal&svara temple. This question will be considered farther on in the 
section treating of the temple. On. 2606 of the same date represents the Deva 
(or king), the patta-mabadevi Santa la-Devi and the five ministers {pahcha 
pradhdnarum) as being present at the making of the grant, and we shall find 
other instances in which the king and the five ministers (whoever they were) 
form the final court of appeal for the decision of important questions. En. 102, 
dated 1123, gives the Peddore (or Krishna river) as the king's northern 
boundary. Being at the time on the bank of the goddess Kaveri, he heard of 
the death at Kellavatti in Nirggunda-n&d of his younger brother Udayiditya, 
and so converted the village into a rent-free agrahara of 18 shares for the 
Brabmans who had been dependent on him. (Hn. 178 may possibly be a

grant made by this Udayaditya. It is not dated.) Hn. 116, also dated 1 123, 
compares Vishnuvarddhana's conquest of Talakadu to making a clearing in the 
forest, fencing it round by piling up the bodies of hostile kings, burning it, 
ploughing it with the hoofs of his horsemen, forming seed-beds watered with 
the stream of his valour, and sowing them with his lasting fame. His northern 
boundary is given as the Heddore and S&vimale, so the latter, which has not 
been identified, was probably near the Krishna* . He now made a grant to 
his queen S&ntala-Devi, (the daughter of M&rasinga and M&chikabbe), of the 
village*of S&ntigr&ma (now called Gr&ma, east of Hassan), and gave the villages 
belonging to it to 220 Brahmans. Cn. 149, dated 1125, says that the king 
was ruling all the lands as far as to the shore of the southern ocean, and was 
in Talavana-pura. A humorous description is given of the effect of the king's 
soqjhern exploits. Adiyama (it says) ran as if in a race, and learning the 
pace Nrisimhavarmma ran, while Chengiri having multiplied upon that pace, 
the proud Eongas learnt it from Chengiri, and seeing the celebrated Eongas, 
P&ndya also ran, — who would not run before king Vishnu? He had a Jaina 
temple made for Sripala-traividya-deva, and presented him with the village of 
Salya as an endowment. Sripala'a spiritual descent is traced with mention of 
Jaina teachers from Mahavira onwards. He is called the shat-tarkka-Shan- 
mukha, and inherited the titles v&dibhasimha, vddi-koldhala and tdrkkika- 
ehakravartti. In KcL 69 (Vol. VI) Sri pill a is described as a commentator on 
prose and poetry, and it there says that at the courts of the Chola and 
other kings he had defeated many and put them down. In Ak. 41, dated 1130, 
and Ak. 46, dated 1132, we have a chief appointed to the government of 
Kajikatti, who is described as a worshipper of the feet of Nolamba-Deva. 
(Compare Cn. 129 and Ed. 140, Vol. VI). BL 124, dated 1133, is an 
important and interesting inscription giving a well composed account of the 
king's conquests. His destruction of all his enemies was like the breaking up 
of the great deep, the coursers of the sun being borne away in the deluge and 
all the points of the com pas ^filled with the sounds of their neighing. In covert 
language he is credited with the possession of Ariga, Euritala, Kanchi and 
Madhura ,} . A description follows of bis minister G anga -Raja of whom we 
have so many notices in the Sravana Belgola inscriptions. By rebuilding

a devouring epidemio, to Varaja a rutting elephant to trample on him, to Kach an arrow in bis liver, 
to NepAJa a whip for his baok. Bl. 193 says that while still a youth, like a keen soldier, he broke 
and trampled on the Maleya-mah&rAja and roasted Jagadeva; he penetrated into Talak&d, destroyed 
Kongo, and made a breach of Nahgali, subdued Sadali, reduced Badali to ashes, smote Pariynr, 
uprooted Chlrama, took possession of Kanchl-pura, put to flight P&ndya, went clean through 
Uchohahgi, and made the mud standing in Sindo run out; he burnt Beilitige, as if burning black 
bricks, reduced Annigere to little brick*, ground down Ballare, set fire to Rajavur, broke the legs 
of Hanungal, besides crushing Banarase, Halasige, Huligere and Beluyala.

myriads of ruined Jaina temples and bestowing unbounded donations he made 
the Gangavadi Ninety-six Thousand to shine like Eopana (a great ancient Jain 
city, now Kopal in the south-west of the Nizam's Dominions) x) . On Ganga- 
Raja'8 death his son Boppa (whose gurus were Subhachandra and Prabha- 
cbandra) erected a Jina temple of rare beauty to his memory in D6rasamudra, 
naming it the Drdhagharatta Jin&laya after one of his father's titles, and 
having it consecrated by Nayakirtti. The priests then took the consecrated 
food to Vishnuvarddhana at Bankapura. He had just defeated and slain 
Masana s) , who fell upon him with an immense army, and captured the whole 
of his empire. The queen Lakshmi-mahadevi had also just borne him a son. 
He therefore received the priests with great favour, attributed both the victory 
and the birth of his son to the favour of their god, and accordingly, besides 
granting them endowments, gave to the goU the name Vijaya-Parsva and to 
his son the name Vijaya-Narasimha. Bl. 93, which describes the king as 
ruling all the territory to the south of the Krishnaveni river, also refers to the 
same events, and says — "Immediately after the moment when he (Narasimha) 
issued from his mother's womb, his father in one watch subdued and slew the 
enemy who was falling upon him, and returning victorious, with affection gave 
him the name Pratapa-Narasimha, and crowned him from the time he was 
born. Thus from the day of his birth he had a diadem on his brow". On. 248, 
dated 1134, gives a further account of the conquests by which Ganga-Raja 
enlarged the kingdom. He seized Talakadu, took possession of Eongu, drove 
'off fianki, overthrew Chengiri, and sent Narasinga to the abode of Tama. His 
nephew £cba erected Jina temples in Belgola like those in Eopana, while his 
eldest son Boppa subdued the Kongas and brought various countries into 
subjection to his master. Ak. 30, also dated 1134, gives Ramesvara as the 
southern boundary of the kingdom. Hn. 119 also says - east, south, and 
west, three oceans being the boundaries of the land he ruled, on the north be 
made the Perddore his boundary. His own country he gave to Brahmans and 
the gods, and himself ruled over the foreign countries won by his sword. 
Bl. 86 says there was no great gift which he had not bestowed; no kings who 
had not fled terrified by his arrows; no point of the compass where pillars of 
victory inscribed with his name had not been erected; no quarter of the world 
which had not been filled with joy at his great fame. In Hn. 89, dated 1135, 
we have a repetition of Vishnuvarddhana's conquests, as already given in 
inscriptions noticed above. The fresh information of interest regarding him 
here obtained is his marriage with a &aotala-Devi, the beautiful daughter of a 
chief named Keteya-Nayaka and his wife Jakkiyabbe. The issue of this 
marriage was a lovely daughter, named Chikka-Santale. But both mother and

daughter soon died, and Jakkiyabbe erected Siva temples in their memory. 
The original queen S&ntala-Devi, we know from SB. 63 (Vol. II), died in 113 1 at 
Sivaganga. The king must then have married Laksbmi-DSvi, by whom he had 
his son Narasimha in 1 133, as we have seen above. The marriage now described 
with another Sintala-Devi must have taken place soon after, as both she and 
her child died in 1135. From Cxx. 186 it may be gathered that Lakshmi and 
S&ntala were queens at the same time. BL 17, dated 1136, contains details 
additional to what we know of the king's victorious career. It says that — u On 
his deserting his queens, forsaking his kingdom and dying in the country 
near Chengiri, Vishnuvarddhana took possession of the company of NarasingaV 
wives, put down Angara, trampled on Singalika, and turning in the direction 
of the Ganges, slew the kings of the northern countries. Having succeeded in 
this expedition to the north, his 4 * elephant trampled down the army of the 
P&ndya king, ashamed of so easy a victory, having defeated Chola and Gaula 
in terrible great wars. Pursuing P&ndya, he seized Nolambavadi, capturing 
(Jchchangi in a moment. After that, marching to Telunga, he captured Indra 

together with bis elephants, the wealth he had gained by victory and the 

wealth inherited from his family. Next, destroying root and branch Masana, 
who was a torment to the country, he wrote down the Banavase Twelve 
Thousand in his kadita (or account book). When he played at tossing up the 
Sahya mountains, Nilagiri and . .. ., of what account are the others? What 
wonder that he took Panungal in half a second with a flip of his finger, and

Five Hundred ". Every country, hill-fort or king that was famous he sought 
out and subdued. Why (says Hn. 63) should there be a separate Bhdrata story? 
Is not the history of king Vishnu enough? s) After describing him as the 
destruction of Chola, Chera, P&ndya, Pallava, Narasimhavarmma, Kalapala 
and other kings, and putter to flight of the Vanga, Anga, Ealinga, and Simhala 
kings, saying that Kanchi-pura resounded with his orders, the southern 
Madhura-pura was squeezed in his hand, and Jananatbapura destroyed by his 
general, — he is said to be ruling the Gangavadi, Nolambavadi and Banavase 
provinces. Here follow the exploits of a young general named Vishnu or Bitti- 
yanna, and Immadi-dandanayaka. He seems to have been a special object of 
the king's favour, and received his education from Sripala before mentioned. 
His father was an old minister of the time of E^eyanga. The king treated 
him like a son and perhaps had some idea of adopting him, (having then no 
son of his own), as he himself had his upanayana performed, and after seven or

eight years of age i; , when he had become proficient in the use of arms, obtained 
for him a virgin-jewel as a bride and himself took part in the marriage 
ceremonies. At the age of ten or eleven l) the boy having become as sharp as 
kusa grass and perfect in the four tests of character, the king invested him 
with the title of nuikd-prcxlmnda^andaridyaka and made him sarwddhikdri. 
He justified his patron's confidence by gaining important victories in the south 
with extraordinary rapidity, in half a month it says, especially burning R&ya- 
rayapura, and brought back troops of elephants together with much spoil. 
Then comes the spiritual descent of his guru Sripala*', (who is highly praised, 
his commentaries and mastery of logic being specially mentioned), to whom he 
made a grant for a Jaina basadi. We bear no more of this young man after 
this period. In Ak. 32, dated 1136, we find the senior crowned queen was 
Bammala-Devi. She was of the Pallava family (see Ng. 3, Vol. IV). Bl. 117 
also of 1 136, contains a reference to the Kalamukha sect, who were of the 
Parvvatavali. But the main part of the inscription is taken up with the praises 
of the jeweller citizens young and old (manigdra-bdla-vriddJia-tiakharangal) of 
the three capitals (btdu) Ddrasamudra, Beluhur and Vishnusamudra. These 
were Halebid, Bel ft r and perhaps Keresante (see Ed. 88 to 93, Vol. VI). 
Among other epithets they claim to be bees at the lotus feet of Manikya-bhatta 
and others the fifty-one Sarwajnas, born in the race of Nittiri-vira; attainers 
of Vlra-Balancha perfection ; as if obtainers of a boon from Varan&gala-Ganesya- 
deva who had uprooted daily rites; obtainers of a boon from the goddess 
Sarada of Kasmir; emigrants from Ahichhatra; and so on. They granted 
certain dues for their god Manikesvara. Ak. 144 of 1137, describes Banka- 
pura on one side and Talavanapura on the other as the capitals of the king- 
dom, and Vishnuvarddhana, it is said, performed the tuld-purusha. Bl. 202 
says that the king crossed over the Tungabhadra and laid siege to the fort of 
Hanungal at the end of 1138. Hn. 114 of 1139, when the king was at Ddra- 
samudra, contains some account of a fight with the army of Jagadeva. In 
Cxx. 199 and 200, of the same year, the king was at Bankapura and made a 
grant for the temple erected by the Chaiigalva king's purdnika. Bl. 236 is a 
curious inscription in which the tailors of Ddrasamudra unite to grant certain 
dues for the god Kusumesvara of the palace. Ak. 58 mentions Bammala- 
Ddvi's riding-school. In Ak. 18, dated 1140, the king was in his capital of 
Bankapura, and a list is given of the provinces he ruled. He died in 1141 at 
Bankapura (see Cm. 96, Vol. VI). Ak. 110 of 1142, and even Hn. 65, so 
late as 1149, claim to be of his reign, but this must be a mistake. The former

XYIII INTRODUCTION. 

is of interest on account of its mentioning that the Brahmans of Kodanganflr 
had received that village by a grant from the famous Janamgjaya^, but 
Vishnuvarddhana promised to give them a much better village and settled 
them at Kellangere. They were of the Bali-vamsa, and in Ak. 117 are said 
to be 200 ornaments of iSSmo-drinkers. 

Narasimha was born, as we have seen above, in 1133 and was crowned 
from the day of his birth. He succeeded his father in 1141. The boundaries 
of his kingdom in 1143 are given in Ak. 56 as, — east, Nangali; south, Vikra- 
meSvaram; west, Alvara-kheda; north, the Herddore. This southern limit I 
cannot identify, unless it be a mistake for Rame§vara, given as the southern 
boundary in his father's time. The inscription relates to a chief named Gdyi- 
Deva, lord of Huliyera-pura (? Huliyar), who is described as a sword in the 
king's good right hand. He rescued Sridevi, the senior queen of Sthira- 
gambhira-Nolamba, from her captors and thus got the name of Vira-talaprahari. 
He also for a display of bravery in the Cbalukya king Ahavamalla's camp (or 
capital, kataka) received the title Doddanka-badiva. His grandson Bhima slew 
Sitagaraganda in king Vishnu's camp (or capital, Hdu) and was awarded that 
as his own title. Much praise is given to a guru Lokacharyya as an advanced 
grammarian and astrologer. En. 69 of 1155, contains an account of the 
general Bokimayya or Bokana. Chdla, M&lava, Ealinga and Gurjjara dared 
not encounter this Bitti-Deva's Garuda. He brought the Tulu country, the 
Changa king's territory, Bayalnad, the Konga king's dominion, the Chdla m 
country and other celebrated places into subjection to his king, as far as the 
western ocean. In Ak. 141 of 1159, we have again the spiritual descent of 
Sripala. He was the disciple of Mallishena-Maladhari, well known as the 
ganadhara of the Kali age, of whose death we have a record in SB. 54 (Vol. II). 
Sripala is praised as emperor of logicians, able by the rules of the six systems 
of logic to break down the argument on any topic, and as proficient in both 
prose and poetry. Bl. 193 of 1161, tells us that hearing a Kadamba army 
was at Bank&pura preparing to attack him, the king crushed the force and won 
all its spoil. He was as if Nala, N&bhaga, Ambarisha, Prithu, Harischandra, 
Chandragupta, Rama, Arjuna, Puru, Sagara, Dusbyanta, the most celebrated 
kings in the world had all united into one. He acquired the praise bestowed 
on all the great men of old mentioned in the Bhdrata and Rdmdyana. His 
senior queen is said to be Chagale, whom we have not met with before, the 
queen who was the mother of Ballala being always named as £chala-Devi. 
But the present inscription implies that he had 384 women of good birth as 
wives or concubines. He is also said to be a conjunction of Ealasena, Gaula-

Deva, Vlrabiri, Gaduncha, Panchamattiga, Bhima, Sdmila, Kunnula, Boppula, 
Talaprahari and other heroes. Who most of these were is not known. He was 
moreover a submarine fire to the ocean the Tuluva army, and an elephant to 
the lotus garden the Pandya-kula. In Ak. 142 of 1162, we have mention of 
another queen, Gujjala-Devi. Ak. 172 of 1163, repeats most of the praises 
already given above. On. 210 of 1165, mentions the birth of Kumara-Ballala- 
Deva, but whether this was the date of the occurrence is not clear. Narasimba's 
inscriptions continue to 1173, at which time he is described in Bl. 114 as a 
royal swan sporting in the lake of the Andhra women, a sun to the lotus faces 
of the Simhala women, a golden zone to the waists of the Karnnata women, 
an ornament stamped with musk on the cheeks of the Lata women, the saffron 
paste on the goblets the breasts of the Chola women, a moon to the waterlilies 
the eyes of the Gaula women, the wave on the . . . of the beauty of Bang a) a 
girls, a bee to the lotuses the faces of the Malavis. He seems to have died in 
this year, being only 40 years of age. 

His son Ballala II was anointed to the throne on the 22nd of July 1173 
(Hn. 71 and 119, Bl. 118, Ak. 71); but before this we see him in 1166 
(Cn. 191) described as ruling along with the Mahadevi ; and in Ak. 1 is 
an account of his guru VasupCtjya, the disciple of Sripala, already mentioned 
above, whose descent is given in some detail. Bl. 86 says that Ballala, leaving 
his father, passed over Male, and the minister Tantrap&la-Hemm&di, making 
the Kongalva, Changalva and other chiefs of Male to visit him, caused the 
diadem of empire to be bound on him. Ak. 71 is the first that contains a 
description of Arasiyakere, which was a royal city (rdjadhdni) and treasury 
town (banddrarVdda) named Jayangonda-Ballalapura. Its praises recur in 
several inscriptions (Ak. 79, 90, 77, 88, 90) showing that it was a populous 
and prosperous place, with a large Brahman population as well as a number 
of Koyil&l'J. ttti. 58 says that when Ballala's drum sounded, Lai a lost his 
gaiety, Gurjjara was consumed with a fever through fear, Gaula was as if 
pierced with a spear, Pallava was reduced to meagre wealth, and Chola had 
his crown reduced to powder. Ak. 138 says that when he mounted his horse 
for an expedition of victory, Ealinga went off to live in the woods, Tuluva 
fled, Eonkana hastily made ready for the sacred desert, Gurjjara and Malava 
gained the thickets of the Vindhyas, Cholika spent bis days on the sea-shore". 
The king is described (On. 146) as protecting the region of the South, and is 
frequently styled the emperor of the South. Reference to Chalukya supremacy 
completely disappears. On. 229 is the first that mentions the queen Bammala-

Deri, bat Ak. 62 says she was a terror to co-vires and plucked up the families 
of the hill-chiefs by the root This inscription mentions a number of munis 
who were upholders of the L&kulagama-eamaya 1 ', delighting in rererence to the 
Ekkdti munlndras, and adherents of the Kalimukhas. Cn. 264 gives a farther 
account of her. tTti 64 introduces the pirij-arasi Ketala-Devi. Cn. 209 of 
1 178, is the first that mentions his capture of the Uchchangi hill so often 
afterwards referred to. Its extent was such as to enclose the three worlds, 
while its summit soared into the sky higher than the king of birds,— yet he 
took it without effort through Pandja's terror, as if playing at tossing up 
pebbles. BL 137, 176, Ak: 178, say that Chdla laid siege to it for twelve 
years without success and abandoned it as hopeless. On hearing which, Ballala 
attacked it and mounting on it but one cubit was sufficient to bring it into 
his possession. From this erent he acquired the name Giridurgga-malla, and 
as it was a Saturday (Saniv&ra) when the conquest was effected (siddhisidudu) 
he also took the title Sanirara-siddhi". BL 72 says that Uchchangi had a 
moat like Patala, was as broad, as the eight cardinal points and as high as 
the sky, and was thus famed in the three worlds. Yet he captured it. But 
when Pandya threw himself on his mercy, he had favour on him and restored 
him his kingdom. BL 176 also says that when a crore of warriors attacked 
him, be fell upon them by himself in the battle of Ummadux, and like a boy at 
play, with his sword created a sea of blood. Cn. 220 says that the flames of 
bis valour charred black the Cholika territory, turned to ashes the Nolamba- 
vadi and Banavisi countries, made Gutti as if buried, and covered up with 
smoke Pan un gal and the mountainous Alvara-kheda. Cn. 150 refers to his 
learned minister Chandramauli and bis beautiful wife. Ak. 88 commences 
with a very singular invocation of "the Brahmeya who wanders at night". 
Ak. 22 contains an interesting account of some merchants of Brahman descent, 
one of whom imported horses, elephants and pearls in ships by sea and sold 
them to kings, and another who transported goods from the east to the west 
and from the north to the south and vice versd. Ak. 48 describes how the 
jagatis made Kalikatte into a city, on Arasiyakere being assigned to others. 
The inscription was composed by the poet Santinatha. Ak. 67 is an example 
of the way in which each successive king is mentioned as if presently ruling, 
which is often met with among the Hoysala inscriptions. With Ak. 93 of 
1 1 89 we first meet with the queen Uma-DSvi. In Ak. 86 she is represented 
as ruling the kingdom, and in Ak. 40 appears again in 1209. Ag. 78 shows 
the minister Machimayya in 1189 ruling Konga-nad, which from Ag. 81 
appears to have consisted of two Two-thousands. The final verses of the 
inscription include one which prays that the Vibhlshana reign may continue 

x) An account of L&kuja will be found in Vol. VII in connection with Balgami, where he was settled. 
f) Bat these titles belonged to the Kalaoharya king Bijjana before this.

INTRODUCTION. XXI 

as long as Yama, the moon and sun and earth remain, and as long as the 
story of R&ma is in the world. The meaning of which sloka, it says, is as 
follows, but no meaning is given. On. 179 of 1190, says that Ballala was a 
lion to the elephant the Malava king, the uprooter of the Gurjjara king's 
kingdom, putter down of the pride of the Andhra kiug, a thunderbolt to the 
rock the Ahira king, a raw-bhairava to the Varala king. In order still farther 
to sow seeds for the growth of his glory, he prepared the ground by conquest, 
and from SojratCtr as far as Belvola manured it with the bodies of the myriads 
of brave warriors of the Sevuna army, thus making it 'fit to be turned up by the 
ploughshares of the cultivators. The fortified places he rapidly took were — 
Vir&ta-raja's city, Kurugodu, the Matanga hill, Dhorevadi, Gutti, Guttavojalu, 
Uddhare, Kaladi, Bandanikke, Ballare, Soratftr, Erambarage, Haluve, Manuve 
and Lokkigondi, all of which are in the Bombay country or the north-west 
of the Mysore. The composer of this inscription was Jannayya. Bl. 204 and 
Ak. 6, both of 1194, describe the attacks on Kurugdd and Lokkigundi. The 
latter was defended by Jaituga (the Y&dava king), and seemed invulnerable, 
with high ramparts and lofty bastions on which were mounted astonishing flag- 
staves. Bl. 112 says that Ballala was as powerful as Nriga, Nala, Nahusha, 
Yudhishthira, Sagara, Bhagiratha, Dilipa, Purukutsa, Ayub, Gaganachara, 
Bharata, Rama and others . . . .ya in which ? Vikkeya was, Hanugal in which 
Kovana was, Lokkigundi in which Pokkili-Saivunas 1} were firmly established, the 
great P&ndya's bill, considered impossible to capture,— these like letters written 
on water, the wind of Poysala's march blew away. Ak. 118 also of 1 194, shews 
the king had taken up his residence in B&guli. Through the excellent manage- 
ment of the general Madhuha or Madbusftdana the kingdom was in a state of 
great prosperity. The treasury was filled with wealth; the city with elephants, 
horses, women and jewels; the agrah&ras and puras with learned Brahmans; 
and all the land with wealth of cows, increase of grain, and crowds of 
population. The composition of this inscription was revised by the great poet 
Trivikrama, who is also mentioned in others. Ak. 104 of 1196, shows the king 
living at Erambarage (Yelburga in the Nizam's dominions). On the east he 
had shaken Ranch!, on the west he had made the ocean roar, while the great 
CbSra country rose up and fled, and the whole of the Pandya king's country 
took refuge in forests, entering even those with fear. Ak. 23 of 1197, repeats 
this. Next year, according to Bl. 77, he was living in Kukkanftr-koppa. 
Moistening his sword with the blood of his enemy the Pandya king, he whetted 
it on the grindstone the head of Billama, and sheathed it in the mouth of 
Jaitugi. The following year he was living at Huligere (Ak. 103). The priest 
of the temple in this inscription was a son of Nagarasi-pandita, described as a

promoter of the Likul&gama-samaya. Hn. 139 of 1200, shows the king in 
residence at Vijayasamudra. This in Cn. 172 is called the rdjadhdni or royal 
city, and is said to be on the bank of the Tungabhadra. It is evidently the 
same as the Vijayapur of Cn. 244, which is said to be Hallavftr. He was 
residing in the same place in 1205, 1209, 1210 and 1211 (Cn. 181, Ak. 40, 
Cn. 172, 244, Ak. 137). I find a <Hnlloor' in the maps, on the Tungabhadra 
in R&ni-Bennflr taluq, and this may be the place. Bl. 72 of about 1200, states 
that the king had latticed windows of stone and other accessories made for the 
Belar temple. Cn. 161 of about the same date, records the death of Srip&la- 
ydgindra. Cn. 205 brings to our acquaintance the senior queen Cbdla- 
mah&d6vi, regarding whom we have a touching story. She was ruling Kemb&la, 
when it was reported to her that some wicked persons at BSvfcr had used hard 
words about her. She thereupon ordered it to be attacked and KSta-malla 
was killed in the assault. Feeling compunction for this, she sent two of her 
chief men to the family, saying, — "We have caused pain to our children; go 
and encourage them with our words, and in the presence of the sixty families 
of Kemb&la console Keta-malla's son and make to him the grant of a rent-free 
estate." Cn. 265 contains a curious account of an architect or builder named 
St6tak&chari, and his son who was a priest. Ak. 40 of 1209, speaks of Um&- 
dSvi's kingdom and says that her minister was Kumara-Panditayya, and Cn. 172 
of the same date, says that he was the son of BalUla and Um&-devi. But 
Cn. 243 of 1210, states that Narasimha was the Yuvar&ja, and praises the 
beauty and virtues of his sister Sovala-dSvi. According to numerous inscriptions 
Narasimha's mother was Padmala-Devi (see Bl. 116). Cn. 244 gives a long 
account of the minister Kesava or Kesiraja, and states that his ancestors were 
all ministers to the Hoysala kings, — I&ma, to Vinay&ditya; his son Sridhara, 
to Ereyanga; his sons Mallideva, Damar&ja and Kesavaraja, to Vishnu- 
varddhana; Malla's sons Madhava, Bettarasa and Dama, to Narasimha; among 
Befturaja's sons was Kesiraja. Hn. 31 shows the king in 1211 moved to 
R&ya. .pattana. Bl. 130 in 1217 speaks of the queen Ketala-Devi and her 
kingdom. But Bl. 116 shows that the king also had a junior queen called 
Abhinava-Ketala-devi. Hn. 61 shows the king encamped at Nidugal-durga 
in Stre-nad in 1218. An account is given of a great officer of the king's who 
was a r&ja by right in the K&smtra country. Cn. 211a of probably the same 
year, places the king at Nalldr-koppa. Ak. 77 of 1220, contains an account 
of how RScharasa, the eminent councillor of the Kalacburya-kula, placed 
himself under Ballala's protection, and hearing of the steadfastness of the 
thousand families of Jains in Arasiyakere, he set up there the Sabasrak&ta- 
chaityalaya and endowed it, with the sanction of the king. Arasiyakere is 
styled the southern Ayy&vale. Its Brahmans were learned in the vedas, the

guards brave, the traders wealthy, the fourth caste of unshaken speech, the 
women beautiful, the labourers submissive, the temples ornaments to the world, 
the tanks deep and wide, the woods full of fruit, and the gardens full of 
dowers. On. 2116 states that BallaJsuDeva being of full age, established 
Narasimha in the kingdom and went to heaven. This was in 1220, as Cn.1726 
states that Narasimha was crowned on the 18th of April in that year. Ball&la 
was thus at least 55 years of age at his death and had reigned 47 years. 
Coincident with his death, it appears, was the self-sacrifice of the prince 
Lakshma, recorded on a pillar near the HoysalSsvara temple at Halebid, bearing 
at its base the interesting inscription Bl. 112- Kuvara-Lakshma was Ballala's 
minister and general, cherished by him as his son. " Between servant and king 
there was no difference; the glory and marks of royalty were equal in both." 
41 His wealth and bis life Kuvara-Lakshma devoted for the gifts and victories 
of vira-Ballala-Deva, and conquered the world for him as far as the southern 
ocean." "Of the sixty-four branches of learning there was not one of which he 
was ignorant: of only two things was he ignorant, — how to say no to suppli- 
cants, and how to suffer defeat." He had received the decorations of the todar 
and the pende (jewelled anklets). His wife was Suggala-Devi, who also wore 
a todar on her left foot as a sign of devotion to her husband. He had a 
company of a thousand warriors, vowed to live and die with him. He set up 
this wrcusdsana y on which, as evidence that Garuda alone was his equal in 
fidelity to his master, images of himself and of Garuda were equally engraved 
thereon. "While all the world was praising him as the founder of the greatness 
and increase of king Ballala and the cause of his prosperity, — the dandesa 
Lakshma, together with his wife, mounted up on the splendid stone pillar, 
covered with the poetical virons&sana, proclaiming his devotion to his master: 
and on the pillar they became united with Lakshmt and with Garuda." The' 
sculptures on the^pillar point unmistakably to suicide, being all figures of men 
with swords cutting off their own arms and legs, and even their own heads . 
-The next king Narasimha II was crowned on the 18th of April 1220 
(Cn. 1726), and in the same year, farther said to be the first year of his reign 
(BL 115) i he and his mother Pad mala- Devi granted endowments for the temple 
of Kfidareivafa at Dorasamudra or Halebid, which had been erected by his 
father Ballala-Deva and his father's junior wife Abhinava-Ketala-DSvi. From 
Bl. 113 it appears that an attack by a Bijjana was repulsed in the same year. 
The king's usual titles are as given in Cn. 197 of 1223, namely, — uprooter of 
- the Magara kingdom, displacer of P&ndya, establisher of the Chola kingdom. 
He is said to be, by his victorious expedition to the east, in the enjoyment of 
a wealth of elephants, horses, jewels and articles never before acquired. His 
minister was Amita, whose son was Ballala, and this father and son were the

king's chief supporters . Cn. 203 says: why describe his forcible capture of 
Adiyama, Chera, P&ndya, Makara (or Magara), and the powerful K&davas? 
Rather describe how he lifted up Chola, brought under his orders all the land as 
far as S§tu, and pursuing after the Tri-Kalifiga kings, penetrated tbeir train of 
elephants. His queen Kalala-De?i bad by this time (1223) borne bis son Sdyi 
or Sdm&rvara-Ddva, to whom the king's sister Sovala-Devi was like a mother 
(see Ak. 123). His chief accountant was Visvan&tha, a Brahman of Lokkagnndi 
in Belvola, whose eldest brother isvara-d&va claims to have taught the king 
letters and accounts and made him proficient in arts, while Visvan&tha himself 
was so clever that he could write the letters with both hands, and perform a 
hundred avadhdnas (or mnemonic feats) so that the learned who examined him 
nodded their heads (in approval). He obtained a copper sasana for an agrah&ra 
fftm the king when the latter was marching against Magara, and in the royal 
'camp pitched at the koppa of Cbddavadi was holding a festival on adding to 
his necklace the emerald which came from Munivaraditya. Bl. 161 of 1227, 
says that he had protected Chdla, captured Magara's elephants and wealth and 
uprooted him, aud reduced the Pandya and Pallava kings to the condition of 
servants. Air 81 is a memorial of a woman who performed sahagamana, 
owing to the Mahadevi having put her husband to death. Cn. 204 tells us 
that in 1228 the king was ruling the Gangav&di, Nolambav&di, Banavase and 
Kadambalike provinces, with Nangali on the east, Eongu on the south, Alva- 
kheda on the west, and the Heddore on the north, as his boundaries. He now 
had a son named Ereyariga by Gaurala-Devi, the daughter of one of his body- 
guards. En. 84 of about 1230, says that on his expedition to the north the 
TungabhadriL was filled to the banks with streams of blood, owing to his 
slaughter of Vikramapala, Pavusa and others, and the bloodshed of the Sevuna 
army. Bl. 74 says that his sword, which he bad soiled with the brains of 
Vikramapala and P&vusa, he cleansed with the hot blood of Makara, and 
setting up Chola, who was covered up by the dust from the feet of hosts of 
enemies, be acquired fame as the establisher of Chola and the destroyer of 
P&ndya. Bl. 238 is a Sanskrit couplet inscribed on the HoysalSsvara temple 
at.Halebid, the author of which describes himself as the poet Vaijanna. I 
have assumed that he may be the Vedartha Vaijanatha-bhatta mentioned in 
AV 123. This inscription describes the king as encamped in 1234 at 
Bavitadana-kuppa, while on a victorious expedition over Pandya. His sword 
being Vasugi, and his arm Mandara, by violently churning the ocean the army 
of the hostile Magara, Narasimha obtained jewels of elephants and jewels of

alligators, saying to the Pandya kings t — give up all, and live in peace as his 
servants. Ak. 82 of the same date says he was a wild-fire to the forest of 
the Chakrakftta fort, thunder to the goose the pride of Kadava-Raya, Indra to 
the mountain the pride of the P&ndya champion, establisher of the Cbdla 
kingdom. The Poysala country is described as having from yqjana to yqjana 
towns surrounded with gardens, tanks filled with lotus, and groves for travellers 
to rest in. A very interesting account is given of a merchant from Kerala, 
named Dam6dara-Setti, who was greatly honoured in the Poysala kingdom. 
He was a native of Kolem&ka to the west of which is the Pereru river, and 
was an expert in the examination of goods and animals. 

Soma-Deva is first met with in Ak. 123, dated 1237. He is said to have 
uprooted Rajendra-Cbola in battle, but gave him protection when he claimed 
refuge. But in this year he was engaged in a victorious expedition over 
K&dava-Raya, and encamped at the koppa of Mangala. The inscription was 
composed by Visvanatha whose accomplishments have been stated above, and 
was engraved by the royal draughtsman (r&yasMradhdri). Ag. 12 describes 
the king in 1248 as a lion to the elephant Kalinga, a wild-fire to the forest 
the Sevuna king, Agastya to the ocean Malava, uprooter of the Magara king- 
dom, setter up of the Cbdla kingdom, a right hand in saving the Pandya-kula. 
Cn. 288 of the following year, says that from his elephants continually piercing 
the clouds, they poured forth their floods and filled the T&mbraparnni river ; 
while the numbers of pearls scattered in it from the temples of his enemies' 
elephants were washed down to the ocean and filled it with astonishment. 
His general Brahma forced the enemies, by destroying their groves, towns and 
chhatras, to take refuge in Lul&ya-Lakshmanagara, under the scanty shade 
of trees the branches of which had been broken off by buffaloes. Ak. 108 of . 
1255, says that the king, surrounded by Brahma ns satisfied with the hiranya- 
garbha, tuld^purusha and many other great gifts, the destroyer of the Magara 
and Kadava kingdoms, the saviour of the Chola and Pandya kingdoms, with 
the rank of universal emperor (sdrwabhautna) was in the residence of Kannanfir. 
This has been identified (by Dr. Hultzsch) with a place near Srirangam, and 
is also called in some inscriptions Vikramapura. We have here a farther 
account of the Maleyala merchants from Eulamttka in Kerala previously 
mentioned. The first to be named is Kunje-Setti of Padiyttr. When Ballala 
was marching to attack Uchcbangi, it appears that he did not approve of it, 
and forced the army to retire by the discharge of his arrows as if it had been 
rubbed out. The king was so struck with admiration at his bravery that he 
sent for him and bound on him the crown of a subhata or good warrior. His 
son-in-law was Arasiri Kondanambi, who had satras erected in Harihara, Setu, 
Panduranga, and V&ranasi, and made gifts in all the famous bathing places.

XXVI INTRODUCTION. 

His younger brother was D&mddara, a great devotee of Vishnu and most 
profuse donor of gifts. But be had another younger brother, Eunjanambi, who 
was an expert in testing all manner of gems. He made himself agreeable to 
both the Hoysala emperor in the south and Ballaha Himself in the north 1 *, 
and gained great credit as a truthful negotiator by effecting an alliance 
between the two kings. He at once supplied all the wants of the M&laya, 
KaJiAga, Ch61a and P&ndya kings, so that no Setti was equal to Eunjanambi 
throughout the Hoysala kingdom. His son-in-law, from making gifts from a 
cart-load (bhandi) of money, was called Bhandinambi. His son-in-law Eanda- 
nambi, had a son Kufija, who died young as a Jangama, and in his name his 
father, besides charitable works in other places, erected the Eunj&hrara temple, 
making his daughter the Gana-kum&ri Chandarve the proprietress. And the 
raja-guru Rudrasakti-dera, the 120 temple priests, with all the Jiyas and 
mahd-Qanahgalu, acknowledged her authority by binding on her a crown or 
vibhtiti-patta and giving her the rank of Gana-kumari, (daughter or princess of 
the ganas, the hosts or followers of Siva; the Jan gam as) f) . 

Bl. 73 of 1254, is a grant by Narasimha III, but signed SdmeSrara. 
BL 125, however, later in the same year, shows that Narasimha was then on 
the throne. He paid a visit to the Vijaya-Parsva basadi at Halebidu and read 
the genealogy of his line in the former sasaoa granted to it (no doubt Bl. 124). 
He was the son of Sdm£svara by Bijjala-Rani (Bl. 92) and to this basadi he 
made grants on the occasion of his upanayana (or initiation by binding on the 
sacred thread), which took place on the 25th of February 1255. This ceremony, 
in the case of Esbatriyas ,) , is performed between the ages of 11 and 22. 
According to Kd. 100 (Vol. VI) the date of his birth seems to have been the 
11th of August 1240. He was now therefore in his fifteenth year. On. 269 
says that he was known as $&hityasarwajria (omniscient in literature). Also 
that being steady as a boy, on his being of age (or else in the desire that he 
should be firmly established from boyhood) 4 ', with the king Sdma's approval 
he assumed the splendid crown for the protection of the Hoysala kingdom. 
We know from other records that a partition of the kingdom took place at 
S6m£svara's death, whether arranged by him or by the respective claimants to 
the throne. The "result was that while Narasimha retained possession of the 
ancestral kingdom, with its capital of Dorasamudra, the Tamil provinces and 
the Eolar district fell to the share of his half-brother Ramanatha (the son of 
DSvala-mahaden), who, from On. 231 it may be inferred, had Eannanilr as his 
capital. But, as might be expected, the two sometimes came into collision. 

') Probably the Se>una or Yidat* king Kandhara it meant. 

" Some of these Malejaja merchants are again mentioned io later reigns, Ak 109, Bl. 89.

INTRODUCTION. XXVII 

Accordingly, in On. 206, we find N&rasiriiha in. . rtivftru, engaged in fighting 
with R&man&tha. Also in Bl. 74 we are pointedly informed that the king 
was residing in his own Hoysala country, in the proper capital Dorasamudra, 
which his father had stored with the riches of the kingdom. On. 289 farther 
informs us that on N&rasimha's coming to the throne, having no fear of his 
arm, the great Sevuna king Mahadeva-R&ne came and made war on him, but 
being unable to endure, left his cavalry force and fled in terror in a single 
night, saying 'Flight is best (paldyanam kubalatn). Narasimba's chief minister 
was Perum&le, who in sight of both armies had the javanike (curtain or tent) 
of Ratnapala carried away, and with his sword offered up his head to the 
Lakshmi of victory, whence he received the title of Javanike Narayana. The 
grant in this inscription was made for the Aindra-parvva (festival). In Bl. 98 
we have a shrine of the goddess Nimbaja set up in the Hoysalesvara temple 
iu 1261, and a grant made for it in 1270 (Bl. 92). From Ag. 21 it appears 
that the king made the grant of a village in Kongu-n&d for so distant a god 
as Visvesvara of Benares. Bl. 160 informs us that he had a son named 
Malli-Ddva. Bl. 164 and 186 contain records of a formidable invasion in 
1276, which was repelled. In the name of the Sevuna king Kama-Deva, his 
general SStf uva-Tikkama, assisted by Joyi-Deva and Harapala, and strengthened 
by the army of Irungola (the chief of Nidugal in Pavagada taluq), suddenly 
came and encamped at Belavadi, which is to the north of Halebidu, saying 4 *I 
will take Dorasamudra in only one minute", and laid siege to the fort. But 
under the leadership of Chikka-Keta, who was apparently a son of the king, 
and with the heroic example of a chief named Anka (perhaps his sod), a 
tremendous battle took place on the 25th of April 1276, resulting in a great 
victory over the enemy, who were driven back in confusion beyond Dummi, 
the hill on the Shimoga and Chitaldroog frontier. The badge (of honour) on 
Saluva's face (or forehead) was damaged, and he fled saying "I am disgusted*', 
while Harip&la was stricken with fear and Jeyi-Deva beat his mouth. From 
Air . 149 it appears that rUmanatha made an attack on Singeya-dannayaka 
in Mannana-kdyil and killed him. Two years later we find in Bl. 187 Gajapati 
and R&man&tha united, falling upon Narasimha in a battle at Solettr, when 
some compromise seems to have been effected. Two years later again (Hn. 47) 
there was another fight with Ramanatha. And finally in 1290 (On. 282) 
R&man&tha raised an army and came to fight. In Bl. 188 we are informed 
that Chikka-Eeteya incurred the king's anger and was arrested, while his 
? superintendent of mines (dkarcwmndalika) was dismissed from his treasury, 
and Ankeya (see above), who was master of the clothing of all the army, was 
also attacked. Bl. 90 speaks of a grant in 1281 for the okali sprinkling of the 
god Hoysanesvara. In Ak. 161 we find the king marching in 1285 against the 
Nidugal fort, and by destroying B&geyakege, breaking its pride. Ak. 8 to 14

contain some interesting accounts of a physician named Vaidja Devapille, who 
like Dhaovantari was celebrated for his new art of medicine (*ftfa*a-widya- 
kald). AV 13 implies that there was a prince named Somes vara in 1288. 

The first inscription of Ball&la III in this volume is Bl. 18 of 1292. Cn. 86 
(Vol. VI) shows that he was crowned on the 1st of February 1292. There are 
not many records of his reign, but we know that he went away to live in 
Unn&male (Tiruvannamale in South Arcot), and the Hoysala dominions were 
again united under him. Bl. 24 informs us that the wood-work of the dome 
in the Belftr temple was rotten and fallen, and the ministers had it repaired 
in 1298. Hn. 51 and 62 contain the first notice of the Mussalman invasions 
which overthrew the kingdom. The Turukas are represented as marching 
agaiost Ddrasamudra in 1310. Ak.66 shows the king residing in Virilpaksha- 
pattana in 1330. It is not clear what place this was, but it was in the Mysore 
country, and perhaps somewhere near Kanikatte, Ak. 31 records another 
attack of the Turukas in 1331. The last Hoysala inscription here is Ak. 188 
of 1338, in which we find the king directing the officer in command of his army 
at B&rak&r to remain at his post, which he promises to do, and receives a 
grant in approval. 

Vijayanagar. 

The Vijayanagar inscriptions begin with Ak. 159, dated 1343, which 
opens with an ultra-hyperbolic verse in praise of Siva. Were §arad&, it says, 
to take for all time the earth as a leaf on which to write them, a twig from 
the tree of the gods as a pen, and the ocean as a cup of black ink, even so 
she would not exhaust the sum of thy virtues, Isa. 

HN. 7 states that Sangama, the founder of the line, bad by his union with 
Sarada (Bl. 3) five sons, — Harihara, Kampa, Bukka, Marapa and Muddapa. 
The eldest soo, who was the first king, is called in On. 266 Haryapa, and it 
^ys that he appointed his younger brother Bukka-Raja as yuva-r&ja. In 
Ag. 68 Bukkanna seems to be called his son and he himself ? Hukkanna. 
His original name, according to tradition, was Hakka. Hn. 19 says that 
Bukka's eldest sou was Tippa-Raja, who ? captured Uchchangi, and had a wife 
Singara-Devi. 

Bukka-Raja on coming to the throne, Cn. 256 says, eclipsed all past and 
future kings. When he was reigning, the earth brought forth abundantly, all 
troubles ceased, the people were happy, and wealth increased. Having 
conquered all the world, he built the splendid city of Vijayanagari, where, 
with the Tungabhadra as his footstool and Hemakftta as his throne, he was 
seated like Virdpaksba for the protection of the earth. His minister was 
Muddappa, to whom he committed the burden of the kingdom and remained at 
ease like Vasudeva. Though he had many wives, his favourite one was

Honnayi. His exploits are thus described in HN. 7: — When bis sword begau 
to dance about on the battle-field, the faces of the Turushkas shrivelled up, 
Konkana Sankap&rya was filled with fear, the Andhras ran into caves, the 
Gurjaras lost the use of their limbs, the Kambbdjas-' courage was broken, the 
Kalingas suffered defeat. 

His successor was Haribara II, his son by Gaurambika (HN. 7). He was 
very liberal in bestowing the sixteen great gifts, and is credited (Bl. 76) with 
victory over Cbola, Kerala and Pandya, while Bl. 148 says he protected the 
terrified Saurasbtras, Angas, Kalingas, Vangas and Yavanas. Among the 
final verses of this inscription is one saying, — A work of merit done even by 
an enemy oue should strive to maintain: the enemy indeed may remain an 
enemy, but a work of merit is an enemy to no oue. Mudda continued as 
minister uuder Haribara also, and Bl. 76 contains an account of how the 
Salu-Mdle-Baoaja merchants, with various sects dependent on them, and all 
the Holiyas of Vijayanagari and 26 other towns (named) where fairs were 
established, resolved to pay him certain dues in return for his protection. 
Haviug assembled, tbey placed the diamond vaisanige at the feet of the god 
Virftpaksha, and sitting down, entered into an agreement as to the dues tbey 
would pay, detailed at great length, on drugs, piece goods, grains, animals 
(among which are various kinds of horses, also prostitutes or female slaves). 
They at the same time conferred on him the prithvisettitana or mayoralty of 
the earth. A final verse says, — If a thousand horse-sacrifices and truth be 
placed in the scales, truth will greatly outweigh the thousand horse-sacrifices. 
Bl. 62 informs us that the king in 1381 ordered the roof stones of the central 
chamber of the B31&r temple to be repaired. They had probably cracked, and 
the minister Kampanna had four pillars, with capitals, erected to support 
them. Bl. 63 states that in 1387, the lord Malagarasa, of the Kasmira-vamSa, 
had the broken kalaia on the tower repaired and gilded. Bl. 3, dated 1397, 
opens with an interesting and liberal-minded invocation of the gbd Kesava, 
identifying him with the chief object of worship in every sect orthodox or 
heterodox. He whom the Saivas worship as Siva, the V&d&ntins as Brahma, 
the Bauddhas as Buddha, the Naiyayikas as Kartta, the Jainas as Arha, the 
Mim&msakas as Karmma,— that god Kesava ever grant your desires. The 
attributions which follow seem clearly to indicate a contact with Christian 
teaching. The Kesava of Velipuri, it is said, gives sight to the blind, raises 
up the poor to royal dignity, causes the lame to be the swiftest of the swift, 
makes the dumb eloquent, and the barren to be filled with offspring. The king 
was residing in the new great royal city Vijayanagara, and his general was 
Gunda, whose exploits are thus described: Into the flames of his valour the 
Yavana, Turusbka and Andhra hostile kings fell like moths. Anga, Kalinga, 
G&rjjara, Panchala, Saindbava, Andhra, Choja, Konkana and ? Kautaka, all

the Efralaa, Taulatas, Andhras and ? Kutakas, he seiied their wealth and 
gave it to bis king. Dragging the elephant-like Saipa, Patheya and other 
proud Turushka* along by their hair in battle, he tied them up in his stables 
like monkeys; and besides them, seized bj the throat the two great tigers 
known as Jy£shtha and Kanisbtha. He set np pillars of victory in the interior 
of all the 56 countries (named), and restored the grants which the Hojsana 
king Vishnuvarddhana-Bitti-D£va bad made for this bis family-god. He also 
rebuilt with seven storeys the gopura over the entrance, which Ganga-Salir, 
the Turushka of Kallubarage, had come and burnt, and set up a golden kalaia 
at its summit. 

i*r%- 133 brings us to W? a-Biya, who, it says, was crowned on the 7th of 
November 1406. In En. 18 he is called Bukka (II). tt™ 16 is a record of 
Mallik&rjuna, and BL 136, of Virtpiksha. 

In Tiy% 6 we have the genealogy of the second dynasty. Its origin is traced 
to Timma, renowned amoog the Tuluva kings. From him sprang isvara, 
whose wife was Bukkami, and their son was Narasa. Quickly damming the 
Kiv6ri when in full flood, be crossed over and seized the enemy alive, took 
possession of the kingdom and of the city Srirangapattana, and erected a pillar 
of victory. Having conquered Chera, Chdla and P&ndya, together with the 
lord of Madhura, the fierce Turushka, the Gajapati king and others,— he 
imposed his commands upon all the famous kings from the Ganges to Lanka, 
and from the rising to the setting sun. In Rames?ara and other chief sacred 
places he made the sixteen and other great gifts. 

From Tippaji and Nagala-Deri were born to him Nrisimha and Krishna- 
Raja. These two ruled successively, and a list is given of the great gifts they 
had made and of the places in which they were bestowed. The inscription, 
like many others of the same high-flown style, was composed by SabhapatL 
Fjl 13 informs us that Krishna-Raya marched against Gajapati in 1516 and 
set up a pillar of victory on the bank of the Erishnaveni. The inscription 
records the grant of an agrahara by a chief named Dhaoanjaya, but concludes 
with an extraordinary and unusual verse, whose only connection is that it 
contains the name Dhananjaya. But my friend the late Pandit Rajagopala- 
cliarya of Chik-Ballapur informed me that the original of the verse is different, 
and is given in the Bhdja-prabandha as follows, among some relating to Asoka: —

the tears of the wives of his enemies, caused by their separation from their 
husbands bereft through Asoka. '

HN. 19 gives these kings' names as Narasimhavarmma and Krishnavarmma. 
Cn. 167 gives an account of Basava-diksbita, who had been guru to both the 
kings Isvara and Karasa, and performer of the vdjapeya and other great 
sacrifices for both Narasimha and Krishna-Raja. 

With On. 187 we come to Achyuta-Raya. It is Bl. 197 in his reign that 
gives us the name of Angadi, which I have identified with the Hoysala birth- 
place Sosevftr. TT-n 7 gives us the same important information as was obtained 
in Ng. 68 (Vol. IV) regarding the succession after Achyuta-Raya. On the 
death of the latter, his son Venkata-Raya came to the throne, but soon died. 
Then it was that Sadasiva-Raya, the son of Ranga and Timmamba, was anointed 
to the throne by Rama-Raja, his sister's husband, and the chief ministers . 
He brought into subjection the whole land from S3tu to Himadri, and ruled 
for a long time. The K&mbhdja, Bbdja, Kalinga, Earahata and other kings 
acted as servants in bis female apartments. The inscription concludes with 
the genealogy of Rama-Raja. He was descended from Nanda of the Lunar 
line, through king Cbalikka and Bijjalendra. Then came S6mi-Deva, who 
captured seven hill-forts. His grandson, master of Araviti-pura, was the king 
Pinnama, whose son was the king Araviti-Bukka, whose wife was Ballambika. 
Their son was Rama-Raja, who by his 'wife Lakkambika, had a son §ri-Ranga- 
Raja. His wife was Tirumalambika, and their son was Rama-Raja, whose 
younger brothers were Tirumala-Raja and Venkatadri-R&j£. 

The remaining Vijayanagara inscriptions belong to Sri-Ranga-Raya, (Bl. 1, 
dated 1578), Venkatapati-Raya (Bl. 146, dated 1607), and five of Sri-Ranga- 
R&ya II (B1.80, dated 1659, 196, 81, 122, and Hn.40, dated 1663). In the 
first be is said to be the son of Gopala-Raja and grandson of Araviti Rama- 
Raja-Ranga-Raja. In the second he is said to be the son of Gopala-Raja, but 
grandson of Narasapa-Raja and great-grandson of Araviti Rama-Raja-Venka-

Mallikarjuna, and Bl. 136, of Virftp&ksha. ^ 

In Hn. 6 we have the genealogy of the second dynasty. Its origin is traced 
to Tiinma, renowned among the Tuluva kings. From him sprang Isvara, 
whose wife was Bukkama, and their son was Narasa. Quickly damming the 
KavSri when in full flood, he crossed over and seized the enemy alive, took

Cn. 167 gives an account of Basava-dikshita, who had been guru to both the 
kings Isvara and Karasa, and performer of the vdjapeya and other great

t&dri-R&ja. He was seated then on the jewel throne in Ghanagiri (Penugonda). 
In Bl. 81 and 122 of 1660, he was oq the throne in Velapuri or BSlilr, and 
his descent is given as just above stated. Hn. 40 winds up with a verse 
saying that,— chariots and armies maintained by pro pert/ taken from Brahmans 
will in time of war crumble away like a bridge built of sand. 

Jdvagal. 

Among the inscriptions are a few relating to some of the minor chieftains 
of the District Thus we have the rulers of J&vagal (Arsikere taluq) in Ak. 2 
under date 1515. They claim to be of the Lunar race, and descended from 
Channa. His son was Timma, whose son was Nanjendra, also called R&yana. 
His son was the Bhairava who was ruling the Y&masila, (the Sanskrit equivalent 
of Javagal) country at the date mentioned, when he caused the great tank of 
Bayirasainudra to be made. 

Durgga. 

Next we have the ruler of Durgga, the modern Mah&rajandurga (Hassan 
taluq) in 1595 (Ak. 60). His name was Rangappa-Nayaka. But in Vol. VI 
the line goes back to 1371 (Mg. 87) when Bodha-mah&deva was on the throne, 
possibly the donor of Coorg inscriptions No. 8 and 9 (Vol. I). According to 
tradition the line came to an end with a king who was a cannibal ? and who 
threw himself over a precipice on the Droog from remorse at finding he had 
killed his son by mistake. 

Nuggihalli. 

Next we have the chiefs of Nuggihalli (Channarayapatna taluq). There 
are three of their inscriptions. The first is Hn. 98 of ? 1513, when Virftpa- 
lUja-niabiUarasa's son Mala-Raja made a grant. Hn. 117 of 1573, informs us 
that they were of the Pftdftr-vamsa, and gives their titles, one of which was 
'champion over thirteen kings'. The genealogy here goes back to Tirumala- 
R&ja, son-in-law of Praudha-Deva-mahar&ya of Vijayanagara. He had a son 
R&yoder, whose son was Indusekhara-Raja, whose son was Basava-R4jaya-D£va- 
mah&-arasu. Cn. 266 gives us in 1627 the names of S&li-N&yaka and his son 
Immadi-Bhairappa-Nayaka. 

BUHr. 

This province has been called Balam in Vol. VI, and Major Montgomery, in 
an official report of 62 years ago, says, — " This tract of country (Maharajdroog) 
formed a part of the old province of Bullum, so called from a village of that 
name (now Munjerabad). The word is said to be derived from the Canarese

strength and activity of tbe villagers." I have not met with any support of 
this statement in the numerous inscriptions that have come under notice. On 
the contrary, it is called the Bel fir kingdom (see Bl. 128, Mj. 36). Moreover 
in a work called Kavi-kanthah&ra (a metrical vocabulary of rare Kannada words) 
by Sftry&nka, a minister of Venkat&dri-N&yaka, he makes no mention of such 
a name. He says that in the Hofsala country, which was a hand-mirror (or 
reflection) of KaSmir, was situated the kingdom of VSlanagari, that is Beltlr. 
This name I have accordingly adopted. One or two short-lived lines of chiefs 
ruled at first. But there are no less than about 70 inscriptions relating to 
the latest BSlflr family of chiefs in the present volume, which enable us to 
make up a fairly correct list of the succession, though very great difficulty is 
occasioned by the continual repetition of the same names in successive 
generations. HN. 6 gives the first steps, while HN. 1 and 4, Bl. 12 and 212, 
Ag. 22 and some others help us on. The following is as near as I have 
succeeded in combining the names and dates. Era-Krishnappa-N&yaka is 
represented in most of the inscriptions as the head of the family, who was 
enfeoffed by Kriehna-RHya of Yijayanagar. He was the Hadapada, or bearer 
of the king* 8 betel-bag.

Their principal titles were — boon lord of Manio&gapura 1 *, Sindhu-Gdvinda, 
dhaval&nka-Bbima. There is nothing of special importance in the inscriptions. 
BL 128 of 1638, calls Venkat&dri the destroyer of the Turaka army, and 
eighth emperor of the- Eali age. Some zealous official had stamped a linga on 
the pillars of the Parivan&tha basadi at' Halebid. This was erased and an 
agreement come to between the Ling&yits and Jains, by which the latter 
undertook to present ashes and betel-leaf to the maha-mahattus of the former 
sect, if left unmolested to pursue their own worship and ceremonies. In 
Ag. 22 of 1665, we are informed that Lakshma had a lofty building erected 
in K&Si for Pasupati, and caused the vdjapeya and other sacrifices to be per- 
formed. His son Narasimha had valuable ornaments made for the gods 
Janaxdana and Lakshmt, and performed their marriage ceremony, together with 
the offering of sacrifices by Brahmans. He also made some tanks and established 
an agrahara. Bl 64 informs us that Venkata had the tower of the Kesava 
temple at B£lflr built in 1736, and mounted a kalasa upon it. mj. 84 to 36 
mention the Aigftr-iime, which was the last possession left to the chiefs alter 
they had lost Belur itself and the rest of the territory that had belonged to it. 
A further account of the line is contained in Vol. VI. 

Mysore. 

Of the Mysore kings there are over 30 inscriptions, some of which are of 
special interest. The earliest relate to the reign of Kanthirava-Narasa-R&ja. 
Ag. 64, dated 1647, traces his descent from the Sdma-vamsa or Lunar race. 
Vishnu, who became incarnate in that line as Krishna, created a city filled 
with all wealth, an asylum for all men, which received the celebrated name 
of Mahishi, and placing it to the south of the Kaveri, he established there 
members of his own family to make known his human form. They did 
service to the guardian goddess of Mahishapura and made her the family deity 
of their line of kings. Ch&ma-R&ja and Betta-Ch&ma-Raja successively arose 
in that line, when, by the favour of Nrisimha, Narahari was born as a son to 
the latter in the form of Kanthirava-N&rasimba, at an auspicious conjunction, 
and with universal signs of prosperity. His being the first of the Mysore kings 
who struck coins in his own name is referred to in the following manner: — 
u Seeing that from love of money the people had forgotten Vishnu, the wise 
king Kanthirava made on that money Narahari (referring to the image on the 
coin) and saved the people, like a physician who gives medicine in milk". 
He is also said to have made a special study of the rules in the veda and 
smriti, and as a consequence revived the performance of the ekddaii-vrata in

honour of Lakshmi-Nrihari, like Ambarfsha and other kings of old. In his 
court he was served by twice eight fair ones, holding ch&maras in their hands, 
and honoured with the emblems in gold of the fish, conch, discus and makara. 
In On. 168, 160 and 165, which are probably all of the same date, 1648, 
we are told that the Chennar&yapattana-Stme was given by the king to Dodaiya, 
the son of Channavfraya-gauda, prabhu of Kanak&ranahalli in Tungani-nad of 
the Chennapattana-Slrae. This must be the modern K&nk&ohalli in the south 
of the- Bangalore District. On receiving it, however, we are told that (besides 
various temples, tanks etc.) he built the stone fort "in the royal business (rQja- 
kdryadalli) of the P&ts&ha of Vijayapura" (168 and 166), "in the service 
(kdryadalli) of the Turuka-r&ja" (160). The reference is evidently to the 
Adil Shahi king of Bijapur. We know that an invasion by the Bijapur forces 
under Ran-dulha Khan took place, in which all the north and east of the 
present Mysore country were overrun. In 1638 Seringapatam itself was 
besieged, but the enemy was repulsed with great slaughter by Kanthirava- 
Narasa-Raja. Eventually, by 1644, the province of Carnatic Bijapur Balaghat 
was formed, composed of the Bangalore, Hoskote, Eolar, Dod-Ballapur and 
Sira districts, and bestowed as a jagir on Shahji (father of the celebrated 
Sivaji), who was second in command under Ran-dulha Khan. From an in- 
scription in the Shikarpur taluq we shall find that a fort was erected there by 
the Bijapur Sultan Muhammad Adil Sh&h in 1632, marking the limit of the 
conquests in that direction. The building of this fort at Channarayapa(taita 
in 1648 must therefore have been in accordance with some agreement or treaty 
with Bijapur, though I am not aware that rdja-kdrya has this meaning. It 
more properly signifies that the fort was built for the Bijapur Padsb&b, but 
the Mysore Raja was evidently in possession of the place. Hence some mutual 
understanding must be assumed, entered into for the greater security of both 
dominions. Basavaiya, the son of Dodaiya, succeeded him in the time of Deva- 
R&ja-Wodeyar, and was in power from 1663 (Cn. 166) to 1670 (On. 166). 

Ag. 2 and 3 bring us to the reign of Chikka-D&va-R&ja in 1677. In these • 
inscriptions we have a false accusation brought against the shanbhog of Arkal- 
gud by his deputy, from which the former was ordered to clear himself by the 
ordeal of plunging his hand into boiling ghi, in the presence of the god 
Arkkesvara. This he successfully performed, and was confirmed in his office. 
The details are curious. 

In En. 118 and 182 we have sales of villages in 1762, in the reign of 
Ki-ishna-Raja-Wodeyar, the sum paid in each case being ten times the annual 
rental or revenue, with all tolls and taxes, which are specified. 

Bl. 66 shows us that in 1774, when Ch&ma-Raja was king, and the most 
excellent Bahadur, the Navab Haidar-Ali was ruling, NanjarSja had the 
unfortunate tower of the Bel&r temple again built, and fixed a kalaba upon it.

Mj. 26 is of the date 1794 and records the grant of an indm by Ttpu-Solt&n. 

Finally, Ag. 62 of 1811 is of singular interest. It is a stone inscription 
set up at the Krishaar&jkatte dam on the K4vfirt, and contains nothing 
whatever but a succession list of the Mysore R&jas (Mahisftra-nagarada dhore- 
gala vanHdvaligala vivara). This was the year in which the Dewan P&r?aiya's 
administration ended and Bfummadi-Erishna-R&ya-Wodeyar assumed the reins 
of government. The date being Chaitra Suddha 1, the inscription belongs, L 
believe, to the former period. But the reason for setting up this record here 
in this manner does not appear. The following is the list, which may be 
compared with those given in Vols. Ill and IV. The relationship of the kings 
to one another is not specified.

Architecture. 

The finest examples of Chalukyan architecture are found in this District, 
in the Belftr and Halebid temples. The former was erected in 1117 (Bl. 68 
and 71) by the Hoysala king Vishnuvarddhana on his renouncing the Jain 
faith for that of Vishnu, and 'was dedicated to Vijaya-N&r&yana under the 
name of Chenna-Kesava. He is said to have erected six Nar&yana temples on 
the same occasion, such as the Kirtti-N&rayana at Talakad and others. The 
pierced stone windows, which form one of the most beautiful features of the 
Belfrr temple, may be of a later date, about 1200 (see Bl. 72) and due to 
Ballala II. Within the temple is a carved pillar called the Narasimha pillar 
which is thought highly of by the Hindus for its sculpture. Apparently it used 
formerly to revolve. Around the outer walls of the temple, under the deep 
overhanging cornice, are pierced medallions of dancing girls in a variety of 
attitudes. One has a fruit in her hand on which rests a fly, perfectly sculptured 
in every part. These are good specimens of Hindu art. The names of the 
artists who executed them are given under each (BL 33 to 61, 69). The 
following is an alphabetical list of them, which will be useful for reference: —

The tower of the temple was always considered incongruous, but this cannot 
have been the original erection. For we find from Bl. 24 that in 1298 the 
wood work had rotted and fallen, and was repaired, pillars being erected to 
support it. The temple suffered injury at the time of the Muhammadan in- 
vasion in 1310, and was shut up till the time of Harihara II of Vijayanagara. 
In 1387 the broken kalasa on the top was restored (Bl. 68). In 1397 the 
gopura over the gateway, which had been burnt by the Mu sal man army of 
Kalburga under Gatiga-Salar, was re-built with seven storeys (Bl. 3). The 
central tower of the temple was also rebuilt in 1736 (Bl. 64). It had again 
to be rebuilt however in 1774, in the time of Haidar Ali (Bl. 65). With so 
many vicissitudes it is not to be wondered at that the style of the tower was 
not in keeping with the style of architecture. It has been a frequent source 
of trouble since, and been rebuilt, but has now disappeared altogether. The 
temple is in charge of the priests. 

The Hajebid temples are the HoysalfiSvara and the Ked&r&vara". The 
date of the former is not accurately known. Mr. Fergusson says that it was 
left unfinished, being interrupted by the Muhammadan conquest after the 
works had been in progress for 86 years, but no authority is given for this 
statement. It is said in Bl. 147 that KStamalla erected a Siva temple in 
Ddrasamudra in 1121 and named it after the patron of his family, Vishnu vard- 
dbana-Poysal&vara. But as no description of the temple is given it cannot be 
identified with the celebrated structure under notice, which was more likely a 
national monument. That it was not later than the time of Vishnu varddhana 
is proved by an inscription over the southern door (Bl. 239), which says that 
the sculpture there was executed by Kalid&si for Narasimha-Deva's sculptor 
K6d&r6ja, and therefore in about 1141. There is also an inscription at the back 
of the larger Nandi pavilion that Devdja made the western doorway, and we 
have already seen that he was one of the sculptors at Belftr, and must even 
then have been of considerable age, for he had a son Ch&vana who was also a 
sculptor at the same place. The Praudha-Raya pillar (Bl. 93) contains an 
account of N&rasimha's birth, but as this was brought in by the Vijayanagara 
king whose name it bears to prop up a cracked stone beam, it may not have 
been any part of the present building. The temple is a double one and from 
the votive inscriptions on the inner walls (Bl. 99 to 111) dating from about

1220 to 1300, it would appear that the two gods were then known as Hoysale- 
Svara and PanchikeSvara. BL 98 informs as that a shrine of the goddess 
Nimbaj& was set np in the temple in 1261. The sculptors who executed the 
marrellous statues and figures on the outer walls of this temple, especially on 
the western side, have not given their names, except here and there. The 
following are the only ones, in alphabetical order: 



Ballapna 

Bfohaua 

Chauga 

DAfAja 

Harisha of Ofleyagiri 



Harisha of T&nagandftr 

KMidAsi 

KMArAja 

KAtana 

M&balaki 



M&eha^a 

Mtnibalaki

BAvAja 



None of these names corresponds with those at Bel&r, except Devdja, but 
Odeyagiri Harisha seems to say that Beldr did not agree with him (£6Uir 
dgad&ltl). The temple is conserved by Government. 

The KAd&resvara temple was built by Ball&la II and his junior wife 
Abhinava-KStala-DAvi at the close of his reign, about 1219. There can be 
little doubt that the idea was suggested by the celebrated Dakshina Ked&resvara 
temple at Bel garni, and an inscription at Bandalike, close by, implies that this 
queen belonged to that part of the country. The temple was endowed in 1220 
by N&rasimha II and his mother Padmala-Devi, immediately after the death 
of his father (£1. 116). A banyan tree which had rooted itself in the vimdna 
about 50 years ago was culpably allowed to grow unchecked till too late. The 
sculptured images on the outer wall were thrust out by the tree and portions 
of the building were dismantled, with some intention, not fulfilled, of erecting 
it elsewhere. Many of the images were placed in the Bangalore Museum, and 
recently many more in the HoysalAsvara grounds. Plans have been prepared 
for conserving what remains of the structure, at present a heap of rains. The 
only name of a sculptor found in connection with it is Revoja. 

No notice of these temples can be complete without quotation of the views 
of Mr. Fergusson, the great authority on architecture. u There are many 
buildings in India" he says , u which are unsurpassed for delicacy of detail 
by any in tbe world, but the temples of Belftr and Halebid surpass even these 
for freedom of handling and richness of fancy." 

The illustrations given in the present volume will serve to show the extent 
and arrangement of the temples, though a separate volume of views could alone 
do justice to them. Of that at Belftr, Mr. Fergusson says, "It is not, however, 
either to its dimensions or tbe disposition of its plan that this temple owes its 
pre-eminence among others of its class, but to the marvellous elaboration and 
beauty of its details. . .The richness and variety of pattern displayed in the

windows of the porch are astonishing. They are twenty-eight in numher, and all 
are different. . .The pierced slabs themselves, however, are hardly so remarkable 
as the richly carved base on which they rest, and the deep cornice which 
overshadows and protects them. The amount of labour, indeed, which each 
facet of this porch displays is such as, I believe, never was bestowed on any 
surface of equal extent in any building in the world; and though the design 
is not of the highest order of art, it is elegant and appropriate, and never 
offends against good taste." 

Of the Hoysalesvara temple at Halebid, he says, "The great temple at 
Halebtd, had it been completed, is one of the buildings on which the advocate 
of Hindu architecture would desire to take his stand. . .The general arrange- 
ments of the temple are that it is a double temple. If it were cut into halves 
each part would be complete, with a pillared porch of the same type as that 
at Beltir, an antarala or intermediate porch, and a sanctuary containing a 
Hngam, the emblem of Siva. Besides this, each half has in front of it a detached 
pillared porch as a shriue for the bull Nandi. Such double temples are by no 
means uncommon in India, but the two sanctuaries usually face each other 
and have the porch between them . . . There is no doubt but that it was intended 
to raise two pyramidal spires over the sanctuaries, four smaller ones in front 
of these, and two more, one over each of the two central pavilions. Thus 
completed *\ the temple, if carried out with the richness of detail exhibited in 
the Ked&rSsvara, would have made up a whole which it would be difficult to 
rival anywhere. 

The material out of which this temple is erected is an indurated potstone 
of volcanic origin, found in the neighbourhood. This stone is said to be soft 
when first quarried, and easily cut in that state, though hardening on exposure 
to the atmosphere. Even this, however, will not diminish our admiration of 
the amount of labour bestowed on the temple; for, from the number of parts 
still unfinished, it is evident that like most others of* its class it was built in 
block and carved long after the stone had become hard. As we now see it the 
stone is of a pleasing creamy colour and so close-grained as to take a polish 
like marble. The pillars of the great Nandi pavilion, which look as if they 
had been turned in a lathe, are so polished as to exhibit what the natives call 
a double reflection — in other words to reflect light from each other. Tbe 
enduring qualities of the stone seem to be unrivalled, for though neglected and 
exposed to all the vicissitudes of a tropical climate for more than six centuries, 
the minutest details are as clear and sharp as the day they were finished. 

l > A pioture is gWen to his book of a restored Ttew of the temple as Mr. Fergusson ooaoelYes It 
would haTe been, if oomplete. The obief thing requiring oorreotion is the flnial ornament of tbe 
towers, resembling s lantern. This sbonld really be a kalaea or saorifioial vase, bound ronnd with 
a cloth knotted towards the fonr cardinal points, which, filled with holy water, is used at tbe 
consecration of templet.'

XL DTTHODCJCTIOH. 

The building stands on a terrace, ranging from five to six feet in height, 
and paved with large slabs. On this stands a frieze of elephants, following all 
the sinuosities of the plan and extending to some 710 feet in length, and con- 
taining not less than 2000 elephants, most of them with riders and trappings, 
sculptured as only an oriental can represent the wisest of brutes. Above these 
is -a frieze of §&rdtdas or conventional tigers, the emblems of the Hoysalas who 
built the temple. Then comes a scroll of infinite beauty and variety of design; 
over this a frieze of horsemen and another scroll, over which is a bass-relief of 
scenes from the R&m&yana, representing the conquest of Ceylon and all the 
varied incidents of that epic . This, like the other, is about 700 feet long. 
(The frieze of the Parthenon is less than 550 feet.) Then come celestial beasts 
and celestial birds, and all along the east front a frieze of groups from human 
life, and then a cornice, with a rail, divided into panels, each containing two 
figures. Over this are windows of pierced slabs, like those of Bftlftr, though 
not so rich or varied. In the centre, in place of the windows, is first a scroll, 
and then a frieze of gods and heavenly apsaras, dancing girls and other objects 
of Hindu mythology. This frieze, which is about five feet six inches in height, 
is continued all round the western front of the building, and extends to some 
400 feet in length. Siva, with his consort P&rvati seated on his knee, is 
repeated at least fourteen times; Vishnu in his nine avat&rs even oftener. 
Brahma occurs three or four times, and every great god of the Hindu pantheon 
finds his place. Some of these are carved with a minute elaboration of detail 
which can only be reproduced by photography, and may probably be considered 
as one of the most marvellous exhibitions of human labour to be found even 
in the patient East. 

It must not, however, be considered that it is only for patient industry that 
this building is remarkable. The mode in which the eastern face is broken 
up by the larger masses, so as to give height and play of light and shade, is 
a better way of accomplishing what the Gothic architects attempted by their 
transepts and projections. This, however, is surpassed by the western front, 
where the variety of outline, and the arrangement and subordination of the 
various facets in which it is disposed, must be considered as a masterpiece of 
design in its class. If the frieze of gods were spread along a plain surface, 
it would lose more than half its effect, while the vertical angles, without inter- 
fering with the continuity of the frieze, give height and strength to the whole 
composition. The disposition of the horizontal lines is equally effective. Here 
again the artistic combination of horizontal with vertical lines, and the play 
of outline and of light and shade, far surpass anything in Gothic art. The

INTRODUCTION. XLI 

effects are just what mediaeval architects were often aiming at, bat which 
they never attained so perfectly as was done at Halebid .... 

If it were possible to illustrate the Halebid temple to such an extent as to 
render its peculiarities familiar, there would be few things more interesting or 
more instructive than to institute a comparison between it and the Parthenon 
at Athens. Not that the two buildings are at all alike one another; on the 
contrary, they form the two opposite poles — the alpha and omega of archi- 
tectural design; but they are the best examples of their class, and between 
these two extremes lies the whole range of the art. The Parthenon is the best 
example we know of pure, refined, intellectual power applied to the production 
of architectural design. Every part and every effect is calculated with 
mathematical exactness, and executed with a mechanical precision that was 
never equalled. All the curves are hyperbolas, parabolas, or other develop- 
ments of the highest mathematical forms, — every optical defect is foreseen and 
provided for, and every part has a relation to every other part in so recondite 
a proportion that we feel inclined to call it fanciful, because we can hardly 
rise to its appreciation. The sculpture is exquisitely designed to aid the per- 
fection of the masonry — severe and godlike, but with no condescension to the 
lower feelings of humanity. The Halebid temple is the opposite of all this. 
It is regular, but with a studied variety of outline in plan, and even greater 
variety in detail. All the pillars of the Parthenon are identical, while no two 
facets of the Indian temple are the same; every convolution of every scroll is 
different. No two canopies in the whole building are alike, and every part 
exhibits a joyous exuberance of fancy scorning every mechanical restraint. 
All that is wild in human faith or warm in human feeling is found portrayed 
on these walls; but of pure intellect there is little — less than there is of 
human feeling in the Parthenon. 

The great value of the study of these Indian examples is that it widens so 
immensely our basis for architectural criticism. It is only by becoming 
familiar with forms so utterly dissimilar from those we have hitherto been con- 
versant with, that we perceive how narrow is the purview that is content with 
one form or one passing fashion. By rising to this wider range we shall 
perceive that architecture is as many-sided as human nature itself, and learn 
how few feelings and how few aspirations of the human heart and brain there 
are that cannot be expressed by its means. On the other hand, it is only by 
taking this wide survey that we appreciate how worthless any product of archi- 
tectural art becomes which does not honestly represent the thoughts and feelings 
of those who built it, or the height of their loftiest aspirations. 1 ' 

The Kedare§vara temple Mr. Fergusson considered to be "one of the most 
exquisite specimens of Chalukyan architecture in existence, and one of the 
most typical. . .If it were possible to illustrate this little temple in anything

XLII INTRODUCTION. 

like completeness, there is probably nothing in India which would convey a 
better idea of what its architects were capable of accomplishing. . .By a curious 
coincidence it was contemporaneous with the English cathedrals of Lincoln, 
Salisbury and Wells, or the great French churches at Amiens, Rheims and 
Chartres, of course without any communication. But it is worthy of remark 
that the great architectural age in India should have been the 13th century, 
which witnessed such a wonderful development of a kindred style (meaning 
the Gothic) in Europe. " 

After the glories of the foregoing, mention of other buildings will appear 
tame. The temples at Arsikere must have been fine structures. The Sahasra- 
kttta or Elkdte Jinalaya was erected in 1220 (Ak. 77), by Recharasa, described 
as the eminent councillor of the Kalachuryyas, who had taken refuge with the 
Hoysala king Ballala. The circular porch of the Siv&laya presents some 
peculiarities of construction which Mr. Fergusson has remarked upon. This 
structure has been conserved by making the roof very thick, giving it any 
thing but a pleasing appearance. The ruined temples of B&cheSvara at 
Korainangala, dated 1 160 (Hn. 72) and of Chenua-KeSava at Hire-Kadlur, both 
in Hassan taluq, must have been remarkable buildings. There is an image of 
Vishnu reposing on the serpent in the latter which is wonderfully carved. 

The Jain bastis at Bastihalli, a suburb of Halebtd, are deserving of notice, 
though externally plain buildings. The turned and polished pillars in the 
F&rSvan&tha basti yield double reflections. This basti was erected in 1133 
(Bl. 124), and the S&ntin&tha basti in 1192 (BL 129). The memorial stones 
to gurus at the latter are specially interesting. The guru, with his name 
written over him, is represented as seated on one side of a small table like a 
camp stool, called thavana-kolu, giving instruction to his disciple seated on the 
other side. See Bl. 131 to 134.
