15th Century Inscription found in India

Posted: January 21, 2011 in Articles, History

An important 15th Century inscription has been discovered at Rattadi, a small village in Kundapur taluk. The inscription is thought to belong to the Sangama dynasty of Vijayanagara Empire.

The inscription itself is in Kannada and is thought to date back to the Saka era. The inscription has a great influence in the study of the Vijayanagara Empire and the Tuluva history.

According to the new found histories when Devaraya II was ruling Vijayanagara as its emperor, his officer Bhachanna Odeya appears to have defeated and subdued some ruler of Kabsanaala Durga.

The inscription begins with an invocation to Lord Ganesh, Lord Shiva and Bringinatha. It also mentions the date of Saka year 1330.  This corresponds to 1408 AD. After a study of the full text, it is hoped that the epigraph may reveal some more valuable facts of history.
