Chengam Taluk, North Arcot District.
five pieces of a broken slab lying near the vediyappan temple.
inscription has been assigned to the reign of Sundara-Chola
account of its script (M.E.R. 1934, II, 11).
It records the death of Pongala-Vembadiyar, a resident of Velur
after rescuing the cattle in a cattle-raid made in this village by another
person also called Vembadi son of Pongalat-Tondaiman of Mel-Velar
in Miykonrai-nadu. To judge from
the name and surname of the combatants in this fight, it seems to have been a
family quarrel between two members of the same clan, both subordinate to one
chief Vettuvadi Vanakovaraiyar.
Conjeeveram Taluk, Chingleput District.
pillar of the mandapa in front of the ruine Perumal Temple.
records the remission of taxes granted by the urar of Urrukkadu in
Urrukkattu-kottam on a land called Manabharanapperunjeruvu belonging to
the (shrine of) god Sattanar (Sasta) on the western quarter of the village.
Manabharana was probably a title of the reigning king.
Kumbakonam Taluk, Tanjore District.
north wall of the central shrine, Mahalingasvamin temple.
record states that consequent on the investigation of (the officer or chief) Pirantaka-Muvendavelar,
the sabha and the urar of Tiraimur and the nagarattar of
Tiruvidaimarudil and the devakarmis (of the temple) resumed possession of
a land at Vilangudi, 10 ma in extent, which had been in the enjoyment of
a malaikaran (garland-maker) without any title for the same, and gave a
quarter sey (i.e. 5 ma) of it each to two individuals for raising
a jasmine-garden for the temple. This
is very probably an inscription of Parantaka II Sundara-Chola.
Kumbakonam Taluk, Tanjore District.
south wall of the central shrine, Sivayoganathasvamin temple.
records a gift of 300 and odd sheep for the maintenance of 3 ½ perpetual lamps
in the temple of Perumanadigal at Tiruvisalur in
Avaninarayana-chaturvedimangalam by Purvadeviyar, the mother of Madevadigal
(king ?). Purvadeviyar seems to connote merely ‘the elder queen or
the queen mother.’ The
palaeography of the record and the high rengal year of the king make it
assignable to Paranataka II Sundara-Chola.
Mannargudi Taluk, Tanjore District.
north wall of the mandapa in front of the central shrine, Ramanathesvara temple.
inscription is mutilated. It
records an endowment of land for a perpetual lamp made to the temple of
Tiruviramisvarattu-Mahadeva at Madanamanjari-chaturvedimangalamin nenmali-nadu
by Akkumara-Kramavittan, a member of the alunganam of the village.
This is also probably referable to Sundara-Chola.

south wall of the central shrine, Ghritasthanesvara temple.
records a gift of gold by Gunavan Puttadi of Kumarapadi in Vaidavurnadu,
a subdivision of Kalattur-kottam for burning a lamp in the temple of Mahadeva.
Kalattur-kottam was a division in Tondai-mandalam in which Vallam and
Tirukkaluk-kunram were also situated (South Indian Inscriptions, Volume II,
p. 340). It seems to be
assignable to Aditya I.
Cheyyar Taluk, North Arcot District.

one after purchase and the other after exchange, left in charge of the ganavariya-perumakkal
of the temple of Sri-Pondaipperumal at Rajamalla-chaturvedimangalam, by Bharadvaji

Kachchippedu (Conjeeveram) for the supply of sandal paste to the god.
Udaiyarpalaiyam Taluk, Trichinopoly District.

inscription is left unfinished. It records a gift of a perpetual lamp to the
temple of Mahadeva at Tirumalavadi a devadana in Poygai-nadu, by Vachchiyan
