Two rare inscriptions from the Nolamba Pallava dynasty, who ruled central Karnataka region including present Davangere, in the eleventh century were found at a roadside farm located on the way to Davangere university near Davangere.

According to Burudekatte Manjappa, a history researcher here, these inscriptions most likely belong to the 11th century and  describe small towns that existed at that time.

The little inscriptions which are slightly worn-out narrate the character, valour and goodness of Kavasingha Trilokyamalla Pallava Permanade Vijayarasa who lived in that period, said Manjappa. The Nolambadiraja Kavasingha was a ruler under the Kalyani Chalukya dynasty who ruled Nolambavade. The Vijayarasa was Mahasamantha and he had donated many endowments to temples, religious places at his time and these two inscriptions speak of all these details, said Manjappa.

Kannada words used in the 11th century have been inscribed on the stone slabs. The inscriptions have the sun and moon, Eshwara, Nandi on its upper surface.

A person is sitting on a stool and a word ‘Vijaya’ is written on the stool, said Manjappa and added that further details are being worked out.
