was camped when the Garrā grants were made. On the strength of this we may also assume that in 1208 he had rather advanced further in the north. Of the Geographical names occurring in the record. Ṭiharī, the place of the king’s residence when he issued the grant (l. 10), has been identified with the same village and also known by its longer name Ṭehri-Bāṇapur, near Ṭīkamgaḍh, the chief town of district in Madhya Pradesh. Maṇḍāüra or Maḍaura, the gift-village (l. 7) has been identified with the modern Madaora in the Lalitpur sub-division of the Jhānsī District and lying about 45 kms. south of Ṭīkamgaḍh; and Ṭehrī is at almost the same distance to the south-east of Lalitpur. Sihaḍōuṇi (l. 7) is, of course, identical with Siyāḍōṇi of the inscriptions and has been taken identical with Sirōn Khurd, situated about 15 kms. west-northwest of Lalitpur. And lastly, Vaḍavāri (l. 7) is obviously the same as Vaḍavāḍa of the Garrā plate (No. l) and is also mentioned in the Sēmrā grant of Paramardin. There is no sufficient data in the inscription to identify Raikōura, the original place of the donee, mentioned in l. 12.

1 From impressions.
2 Expressed by symbol, which is more probably for Siddham.
3 The vertical of the consonant v is not completely cut and it appears as d. A faint trace above the topstroke indicates that the sign for the mātrā was incised very lightly and it could not come in the impressions.
4 A redundant stroke makes the subscript of appear as bh.
5 Both these names appear as carved after rubbing out some other aksharas engraved originally. The first of the names may also be read as . The anusvāra on ma of the name that follows is doubtful.
6 A redundant horizontal stroke appears between this letter and the mātrā, as in some other places also.
7 Katare read the letter as da, but it is mutilated and the pṛishṭhamātrā appears partially.
8 The akshara pa is not fully cut, as also in some other lines below.
9 The name can be read also as Raukōra.
10 The daṇḍas in this and the preceding lines are redundant.
