THE CHALUKYAS

Somesvara II | Somesvara I | Vikramaditya VI | Somesvara III  

Jagadekamalla | Taila III | Somesvara IV

No.2.

(B.K. No.207 of 1926-27)

NIDGUNDI, RON TALUK, DHARWAR DISTRICT

On a stone set up in front of the Narayanadeva temple

Bhuvanaikamalla (Somesvara II), 1074 A.D.

This is dated Saka 996, Ananda, Asvija punnami, Tuesday, lunar eclipse, corresponding to 1074 A.D., October 7.

It records a gift of the village Kallamanapalli to the god Tripurusha by Kannadagandhivigrahadhipati, Mahaprachanda-dandanayaka Jannamayya, with the approval of the king.  The donor is said to have had a temple constructed in honour of the deity at Nidungundi in Kisukadu Seventy.  The earlier portion contains a genealogical account of the Chalukya.  The epigraph is mutilated and worn out.

No.3

(B.K. No. 261 of 1927-28)

Bhairanmatti, Bagalkot Taluk, Bijapur District

On a slab lying in the Maruthi temple

Somesvara II

The inscription contains references to the followingtwo dates : (1) Saka 911 (wrong for 912) and Vikrita in the reign of Taila II, corresponding to 990-91 A.D. (2) Saka 955, Srimukha in the reign of Jagadekamalla Jayasimha II, corresponding to 1033-34 A.D. But from an allusion to Somesvara II found in the epigraph, it appears to have been incised on stone later during the reign period of this king (1069-76 A.D.).

The record gives an account of the Sinda chiefs of Bagadage and mentions a gift of land made by Nagaditya of this family.
