Book Description

INSCRIPTIONS of Southern India were begun to be collected systematically by Professor Hultzsch from the latter part of 1886 when he was appointed Epigraphist to the Government of Madras. The publication of these documents with texts and translations was taken up simultaneously and the following fasciouli of South-Indian Inscriptions were issued between the years 1886 and 1903 :—Volume I ; Volume II—Parts i to iii; and Volume III—Parts i and ii. They include 321 records edited critically and supply all the material that may practically be found necessary for constructing the rough outlines of Ch6la and Pallava history. In the year 1909, the late Mr. V. Venkayya, M.A., Rai Bahadur, Epigraphist to the Government of India, volunteered his services to continue the work of Professor Hultzsch and printed in Volume H, Part iv, such of the inscriptions of the Brihadievam temple at Tanjore, as had not been published already in Parts i to iii of that volume.

Before issuing further volumes of South-Indian Inscriptions it is found necessary to complete Volumes II and III with an alphabetical index and a historical introduction. The latter, in the case of Volume II, had been already drawn up by Mr. Venkayya and appears under his signature. I have only added here and there some foot-notes to Mr. Venkayya's introduction, besides giving a complete index to the volume and the texts and translations of two Pallava grants which are expected to supplement materially, the information already supplied by the records of the family published in the earlier parts.

It will be found on perusal that Mr. Venkayya's introduction deals almost exclusively with the reign of Riljaraja I, though the volume iuoludes many other records, vie., 29 of Rajendra-Chola I, one of RajenciradAva, one of Kulottuhga I, one of Vikrama-Chola; three of a probable Ptinclya king Konariumaikondein, two of the Vijayanagara kings TirumalaidAva and Devaraya I, one of the Tanjore chief Achyutappa-Nayaka and one of a certain Mallappa-Niyaka of about the same period,—all coming from the Tanjore temple,' and nine Pallava and Chola inscriptions from other places. Any attempt at giving a full account of these kings will only swell the introduction which is already big. I, accordingly, reserve my remarks on them for future volumes of the South-Indian Inscriptions which will deal with Cholas (other than Rajaratja.), Pallavas, Pandyas and the Vijayanagara kings.
