No. 360

(A. R. No. 360 of 1906)

Tiruchirapalli District, Pudukkottai State, Kudumiyamalai.

Sikhanathasvami Temple --- On The South Wall Of The Second Prakara.

Jat. Virapandyadeva --- 15th Year (A. D 1267-68).

The king is given the attribute “who took ilam, Kongu and Chola mandalam and after conquering the powerful king was pleased to perform the anoinment of heroes and victors at Perumbarrapuliyur”. The inscription registers a sale, as tirunamattukkani to the temple at Tirunalakkunrum, of three veli of puravu (tax-paying?) land at Visalur by the Urar of that place, at the instance of two officers of the king (Rajagomurruvar) Vanadharayar and Gangeyar and on the intercession of the Irandukarai-nattar, for 64,000 kasu. The circum stances of the sale are given, from which it would seem that the Urar had been at default for a long period in the payment of the kadamai-kilirai and had also to account for 50,000 kasu which had evidently been deposited with them out of the amount intended for the renovation of the temple. This is probably the sale-proceeds of the transaction recorded in No. 352. A supplementary sale deed is added to this record figuring the Nattar as an agency and party for the execution of the sale. 


No. 361

(A. R. No. 361 of 1906)

Tiruchirapalli District, Pudukkottai State, Kudumiyamalai.

Sikhanathasvami Temple --- On The Same Wall.

Jat. Vira Pandyadeva --- 15th Year.

The king gets the same attributes as in No. 360 above. The inscription is damaged. It records an agreement given by the nattar and the sthanattar of the temple of Tirunalakkunramudaiya – Nayanar, to a certain individual (name lost) of Visalur, who had donated three ma of land to the temple, to the effect that they would supply 2 kalam of rice and other requirements of the Tiruppavadai-amudu to the god on each of the four special festival days in the year, when the deity was taken in procession to the temple garden. Incidental mention is made of the conversion of a devadana land at Visalur into a tirunamattukkani of the temple by the Nattar and Urar, on which occasion this gift is said to have been made by the donor. 

No. 365

(A. R. No. 365 of 1906)

Tiruchirapalli District, Pudukkottai State, Kudumiyamalai.

Sikhanathasvami Temple --- On The Same Wall.

Tribh.Vira Pandyadeva  --- 7th Year.

This is an unfinished epigraph, evidently intended to register a sale of land fed by three wells at Karandur (village) belonging to Arasugandadevan Arasagalanjappirandan alias Ayilaiyarayan of Pulvayal (?) in Vayalaga-nadu a division of Konadu also called Kadaladaiyadilangaikonda-sola-valanadu, to the temple at Tirunalakkunram in Kunrusul-nadu.
