Engraved inscriptions found in Srisailam Temple

The Bhramarambha Mallikarjuna Devasthanam, who was engaged in the revival of ancient Ganta Matham near the Srisailam temple complex, came across six sets of copper inscriptions on Sunday. Eighteen copper sheets were found, said Karanam S. Rama Rao, the temple’s executive officer. The inscriptions show the broad patronage of the people, he added. Professor P. Chenna Reddy, professor in the Faculty of History, Culture and Archeology at Telugu University, said the engravings found in Srisailam could be dated to the 14th to 16th centuries. Of the six sets, four have inscriptions in Sanskrit and Nandi-Nāgarī script and the other two plates are in Telugu script, he added.
