South Indian Inscriptions


 

INSCRIPTIONS COLLECTED DURING THE YEAR 1906-07

NAYAKAS OF TANJAVUR

Sevvappa-Nayaka

No. 497 (Page No 378)

(A. R. No. 497 of 1907)  

Svamimalai, Kumbhakonam Taluk, Tanjavur District

Subrahmanya temple – in the same place

Sevappa-Nayaka. Saka 1495 : 1573-74 A.D. 

This is built in the middle and also incomplete. The first and second sections together seem to register a gift of 2 veli of land by Sevvappa-Nayakkar, son of Timmappa-Nayakkar of the Chaturtha-gotra and a native of Nedungunram in Tondai-mandalam to the temple of Kumarasvami at Svamimalai in Innambar-nadu Parantaka-nadu, a division of Vikramasola-valanadu of Tiruchchirappalli-chavadi for the abhisheka service of the god and for burning a ‘ghee-lamp’ in the temple, and also for the maintenance of a matha called the Velayudhachchivan-madam. 

A Third piece which seems to be part of another inscription is also found close by which mentions Timmugudi in Vembattur-sirmai and gift of a quarter (veli) of land for the sandhi-abhisheka (of the same god?) and for a lamp. 

The date of the inscription (of sevappa-Nayaka) is given as Tula, su. Paurnamasi, Saturday, Asvati (=1573 A.D., October 10).
