INSCRIPTIONS OF THE CHANDELLAS OF JEJAKABHUKTI

GARRĀ COPPER-PLATE INSCRIPTIONS OF TRAILŌKYAVARMAN

of the king, appears to be identical with Beḍwāḍā in the Lalitpur sub-division of the Jhānsī District and situated in N.L. 24º 30’ and E.L. 78º 41’. It is most probably the same as Vaḍavāri of the Sēmrā grant of Paramardin,1 and of the Sāgar plate of Trailōkyavarman, the latter of which is edited immediately below. Kakaḍādaha, where the battle is stated to have been fought (ll. 10-11) and which too is mentioned in the Sēmrā grant, has been suggested to be probably identical with Kakaḍwā or Kukurooa (N.L. 24 28’; E.L. 78 42’); this place also is in the Lalitpur sub-division. Pāṇiülih may have been Pannā, the headquarters of the district of the same name in Madhya Pradesh; and the granted village (of grant No. 1) Kādōhā appears to be identical with Kōdōa (N.L. 24º 48’; E.L. 79º 52’),2 now in the adjoining district of Chhatarpur. Vikrauṇi and Lōhasihāṇi, mentioned respectively as a territorial Division and the gift-vill age included in it (grant II, l. 7), may have been Bikaura in Sāgar District (N.L. 24º 13’; E.L. 78º 41’) and Lōhāṇī, lying in N.L. 24º 23’; E.L. 79º 12’, in the Bijāwar tehsīl of the Chhatarpur District. A study of the situation of all these places clearly indicates that the first of the charters relates to a grant made in close proximity of the scene of the battle, and the second to a gift made in a region to its east, at some distance, and thus it is evident that Trailōkyavarman succeeded in re-establishing his authority in the central and also the western parts of his ancestral dominions.

_____________________
1 Above, No. 126, l. 8.
2 It is noteworthy that this place is only a little south of Garrā where the plates were found.
3 From lithographs facing p. 275 in Ep. Ind., Vol.XVI, subsequently comparing the text from the originals.
4 A part of this akshara, as of some others below, is hidden beneath the protecting band.
5 There is a redundant horizontal stroke running accross the vertical of the mātrā of this akshara and also across the one preceding it.
6 This name can also be read as .
7 Because of a superfluous stroke of the chisel the consonant of the third akshara of the name appears as dh.
8 A redundant bar runs across the verticals of this akshara, as also noted by Dikshit. See also n. 3 above.
9 This is, Rāüta. The daṇḍa here and in the following line is put to show that it is a contraction.
10 The corrections are made here in view of the expression appearing in the second grant.
