Doni, Mundargi Petha, Dharwar District

This inscription is dated Chalukya-Vikrama year 23, Bahudhanya, Pushya, amavasye, Sunday, Uttarayana-sankramana, Vyatipata, corresponding probably to A.D. 1098, December 25, Saturday, which was the day of Uttarayana-sankranti; the week day cited in the record seems to be an error.  The epigraph registers a grant of tax-free land made by the Mahajanas, who were headed by the Urodeya, and the Settis of Dronapura to the god Siddhesvaradeva.  Saktisiva-Pandtia, the acharya of the temple, received the gift.

Shirur, Bagalkote Taluk, Bijapur District
