Historical inscriptions lying neglected [Art & Culture]

  • The southern States are known to have a vast number of inscriptions running into several thousands carved on the walls of extensive monuments that are the most authentic source of history and a veritable mine of information about the dynasties that ruled in the past.
  • But the general attitude towards these store-houses of knowledge, history and our culture has been either of utter indifference or disregard. Often inscriptions are neglected and more often they are disfigured.
  • Historical inscriptions carved on five pillars stacked one on the other are lying in a state of utter neglect on the premises of Malleswara temple, also known as Old Sivalayam near Radham Centre in One Town area . They are the remains of 10th century AD.
