Detailed Product Description
Inscriptions of The Rulers of The Sangama Dynasty (1336 ad-1485 ad) is the first of three volumes of Kannada Inscriptions prepared under the Inscriptions Programme planned by the ICHR.
The present volume contains as many as 832 inscriptions covering a period from 1339 ad to 1494 ad. Most of the inscriptions are in Kannada language and script, while some of them, particularly, copper plates, are in Sanskrit language and Nagari script. There are a few which are bilingual and bi-scriptal as well. Region-wise, they come from the whole of the Kannada area covered by the erstwhile Vijayanagara empire viz., between the Krishna and the Kaveri.
It is well known that Indian historiography, particularly for the early part of it, rests almost entirely on epigraphy, augmented, only to a small extent, by literature. The history of Vijayanagara is no exception.
These inscriptions provide a variety of rich material and open up new avenues of study. It is hoped that the scholars and the researchers engaged in Indological studies exploit this material to the fullest extent.
