75. The later Pallava chief Kōpperuñjingadēva II is represented by two
inscriptions from Chidambaram in the South Arcot distrcit (Nos. 11 and 12)
both dated in the 5th year of his regin.
These contain the order of the officer Sōlakōn and mention as donors, Rāvaḷar Śrī-Kayilāsadēvar belonging to the
Gōḷa[ki] maṭha at Tiruvaṇṇāmalai and Ponnambalakkūttan Tulaiyādaśelvan alias Kurukularāyan of Pālaiyūr alias Rājēndraśōlanallūr in Pālaiyūr-nāḍu,
a subdivision of Ūrrukkāttu-kōttam. This Pālaiyūr is evidently identical
with the present Pālūr in the Chingleput distrcit (No. 26 of 1932-33).
76. Two inscriptions of Sakalalōkachakravartin Rajanarayaṇa-Sambuvaraya were copied at Māraṅgiyūr (South Arcot distrcit). One of them (No. 82)
dated in his 17th year gives details of date which correspond to May 20,
A.D. 1353. It records a tax-free gift of 4 mā of land for worship and repairs
to the temple and for a perpetual lamp by Māriṅgulān Tirumāgāḷamuḍaiyān
Tiruviramīśvaramuḍaiyān Valittuṇai-Śivan. The record is signed at the end
besides the donor, by Śāmbuvarāya himself. The latter’s signature seems to
suggest that it should have formed
part of documentary routine, since the
land granted, was also made tax-free at the same time. The donor of the
present record is mentioned again in No. 103 from the same place, wherein his
two sons Tirumāgāḷamuḍaiyān and Sūryadēvar figure as donors of the nandi-manḍapa of the temple. The other record of Śambuvarāya (No. 91) is dated in
his 19th year and it records a tax-free gift of land made by the chief for the
conduct of worship and repairs and for a service called Vīrachampan-śandi in the
temple of Tiruvirāmīśvara at Māriṅgūr alias Rājēndrasiṁhanallūr in
Hoysaḷa Ballāḷa III.
77. No. 106 from Viṇṇappaḷḷi in the Gobichettipalayam taluk of the
Coimbatore district, is dated in the cyclic year Vishu in the reign of a Vīra-Vallaḷadēva, who has to be identified
with the Hoysaḷa king Ballāḷa III.
Vishu quoted in the present record would then correspond to A.D. 1341 which
fell in his reign. The record registers a gift made by Mahāpradhāna Rāhuttarāya Kēitaya-Daṇṇayaka for providing worship to god Dēvanārāyaṇa-perumāḷ at
Viṇṇappaḷḷi in Vaḍapariśāra-nāḍu. This Kēttaya-Daṇṇayaka was probably
identical with Vīra-Chikka-Kētaya who figures in a record from
