South Indian Inscriptions



       The present volume contains 465 inscriptions in all, reported in the different years of the Annual Report on Indian Epigraphy. Of these, except a few records, majority of the records are in Kannada language and script. This volume was initially taken up for editing by late Sri H.K. Narasimhaswamy and the late Dr. B.R. Gopal. By the time the manuscript of this volume was sent to the press they were not alive. Since the manuscript of the volume could not be completed by then, the same was taken up for editing by me and Sri Madhav N. Katti. It was, therefore, decided to get this volume press ready and printed through Tamil Nadu Government Central Press at Chennai.
