GUTTAS

No. 389.

(A. R. No. 215 of 1918.)

ON A BEAM IN THE MALLIKARJUNASVAMI TEMPLE AT KURUVATTI, HARAPPANAHALLI TALUK, BELLARY DISTRICT.

The record is dated Saka 1104, Plava, Pushya, ba. 2, Su [kravara*] corresponding to A.D. 1181, December 25 Friday.  It states that while Vikramaditya (II) of the Gutta-vamsa was ruling over Beluhuge seventy and Bennevur twelve, his Pradhana, Susanga-Dannayaka, with the permission of the Mahamandalesvara Vijaya-pandyarasa, is said to have made, in the presence of bacharasa and the Mahajanas of Kuruvatti, a grant of 70 mattars of land for the service of the god Ahavamallesvara in addition to the vritti-land which had been formerly granted by Vikramaditya, the elder.  Lokabharana received the gift.

No. 390.

(A.R. No. 215-A of 1918.)

ON THE SAME BEAM.

This much multilated and dated Saks 1117 and states that Ballala-Bhupa, probably the son-in-law of the Gutta chief Vikramaditya II, made some gift to Lokabharana-Munindra for the service of the god Ahavamallesvara.

No. 391.

(A.R. No. 216 of 1918.)

IN THE SAME PLACE.

This is not dated.  The five hunrded svamis of Ayyaovle, who are described as setting the servants of Yama in motion, as roaring with the thuderbold in hand, as giving their enemies to Yama and as generous to the submissive, are said to have gathereed together with the Nanadesi merchants and the Mummuridandas in Kuruvatti and made a gift of one paga of the hejjunka to Lokabharana-Munindra or the service of god Ahavamallesvara.  As this Lokabharana is mentioned in No. 389, the present record may also belong to the time of Viramaditya II.
