Ambadeva Saka 1213 Khara 

The inscription is damaged. It is dated in Saka 1213, Khara, Kanya, ba. 8, Monday, Punarvasu corresponding to A.D. 1291, September 17. It records a gift of a land behind the temple and an areca-garden as sarvamanya to the temple of Lakshminarayana-Perumal at Gundalur in Merpakkai-nadu of Adhirajendramandalam, by the chief (Ambadeva) for his own welfare and prosperity. This Ambadeva belonged to a family of Kayasthas of whom the first member Gangaya-Sahini was a cavalier in the service o Kakatiya Ganapati. He was succeeded in his office by his sister’s son Janniga-Janardanadeva and next to him came Tripurarideva (No. 229 of 1936) whose younger brother and the most powerful of the family was Ambadeva. The troublous times that followed after the death of Ganapati and during the reign of Rudramba account for this chief’s not
acknowledging any overlord.  No. 268 of 1905 from Tripurantakam in Kurnool gives a long account of his exploits (A. R. for 1906, Part II, para 44).

The latter gives the Saka year 1211 in addition, and gives other details of date as Makara-Sankrama, Smara-tithi (Full-moon ?) and Monday after eulogizing his glory and exploits, of which prominent mention is made of his victory over a certain Mallideva-nripati.
