records an agreement by the uravar of Tiruvarur to supply an uri
of oil every day for burning 2 perpetual lamps before the god
Tiru-Araneri-Udaiyar, for an endowment of three veli of land at

Manarpakkam, a member of the alunganam of Rajamalla-chaturvedimangalam
of Tiruvegambapuram in Damar-kottam, for the daily feeding of a Brahman at
mid-day in the temple of Sripondai-Perumanadigal. The gift was entrusted to the ganavariya-perumakkal of the

the M.E.R. 1916, II, 8, the village has been surmised to owe its origin
to one of the Western Ganga kings named Rajamalla. No inscriptions of that dynasty have however been found at this
place ; but there is one actually of a Rajamalla at Vallimalai in the same
district (No. 6 of 1895).

Tirutturaipundi Taluk, Tanjore District.
pillar in the mandapa in front of the Ramanathaesvara shrine, Vedaranyesvara
is an incomplete record. It mentions Bakulam
evidently a village in [Kana]pper-kurram in Pandi-nadu. The subdivision occurs in the Bigger
Sinnamanur Plates as Tirukkanapper-kurram (S.I.I. III 4, p.
462). The alphabet is early and
the the record may be one of Aditya I.

Arkonam Taluk, North Arcot District.
the south wall of the central shrine, Jalanathesvara temple.
beginnings of lines of this inscription are built in. This records an agreement by the sabha of Aparajita-chaturvedimangalam
(evidently the ancient name of Takkolam), to burn a perpetual lamp in the
temple of Tiruvurarkarrali-Mahadeva for 30 kalanju received by
them. The name of the donor is
lost. This seems to be a record of Aditya
I who is known from the Tiruvalangadu
Plates to have wrested the Tondai-nadu from the Pallava Aparajitavarman (S.I.I.,
III, p. 386)
(A.R. No. 155 of 1928.)

maintenance of 12 servants in the temple together with 2 kankatti
(superivisors ?) and 2 gardeners, made by Ulagaperumal (king) at the
request (of the residents of the village or the temple authorities ?). The early script and the high regnal year of
Rajakesarivarman seem to point to Aditya I as the king intended.

the east face of the south pillar in the rock-cut shrine, Melaikkoyil temple.
is damaged at the end. It registers the
gift of a kalanju of gold for the monthly supply of a nali of

inscription is much damaged. It seems
to record an endowment, the nature of which is not clear, to a Jaina shrine
called Gangasurapperumballi at Raja[kesari]puram by Sri
Gangaraiyan. It also mentions another
shrine called Maisuttapperumballi in the same place and a pallichchandam
land situated in Tiruvidaikkali.

order of Paluvettaraiyan Kumaran Maravan, for a perpetual lamp in each
of the two shrines in the temple of Amanigandarvva-Isvaragarattu-Mahadeva. The chief is probably identical with Kumaran
Kandan mentioned in No. 352 above. The
inscription seems to be assignable to Rajaraja I.

is damaged in places. It records a gift
of 397 ½ palam of (?) to the
temple of Mahadeva at Tiruppalanam by Marpidugu Tirukkottiyur-Kalvan
Amarkalan (or Makalan ?) Anai-Udaiyan. The donor, to judge by his name, seems to have been a Muttaaiyar
chief ruling over a tract of the Ramnad district. A record of Aditya I.

On the south wall of the central shrine,

record is given as ‘third’ in words with however the numeral 20 inserted above
it. This is very probably a record of Aditya
