Konerirajapuram, Thanjavur Taluk, Thanjavur District

East wall of the first prakara of the same temple. Tribh Rajarajadeva III : Year 24+1, Mesha (Chittiral) ba. 8, Friday Sravanam=1241 A. D., April 5.

This inscription is damaged in several places.

It records that the right of supplying lily garlands to the temple of Tirunalamudaiyar of Tirunalam in Vennadu in Uyyakkondar-valanadu, for daily use, and for festivals in the months of Margali and Vaikasi was there and that this arrangement was in the hands of a certain Tiruvilimilalai-udaiyar of Naganpadi from the 13th year in an unauthorised manner and this right was purchased from him, as he was not able to meet the demand. From the 17th year this right was assigned to [ . . . . ] Selvan alias Porkoyil Solappallavaraiyan and his younger brother Sendappillai alias Rajarajappallavaraiyan, who were temple florists. The Mahesvarars and the tanattar decided that they should supply 18,250 garlands per year at 50 garlands a day for daily worship; 44,000 garlands for the festival in the month of Margali and 77,660 garlands for the festival in the month of Vaikasi, all told 1,39,710 garlands. It is stated that the cost for this amounted to 12[2]00 kasu, and its equivalent in seed paddy was 511-1/4 kalam. It is stated that in order to provide for this, lands in the eastern section of Brahmadeyam Tirunallam were assigned to the two above mentioned florists who were also provided with houses. 

 At the end it is stated that in case of floods and drought and government confiscation, the quantities of the yields would be decided by the Mahesvaras and the tanattars and according to the decision, the number of garlands would be supplied by the florists.
