On a pillar in the mandapa of the Sangamesvara temple

The first, second a fifth of these six inscriptions refer to the carvings of sculptures. The third describes Mani of Badavi.  The next one is the citation of a Sanskrit verse and the last seems to be the name of a person.

The first is a brief record probably referring to the mason who constructed the pillar.  The second is the citation of a Sanskrit verse purporting to state that sin committed in a holy place cannot be atoned for.  The stanza, however, is engraved defectively.
