Descriptive Topographical Catalogue of Orissan Inscriptions
Catalogue of Orissan Inscriptions
By- Snigdha Tripathy
The present book covers a subject
of immense value, the epigraphic records of Orissa, the most indispensable
source for the reconstruction of its history and culture. Present-day Orissa
can now boast of a long chequered history of its own, exclusively due to its
immense epigraphic wealth.
Material on inscriptions of
different periods, dynasties and localities of Orissa and in the territories
which once had formed the Orissan dominions in the past or that have a bearing
on the history of this land, are scattered in various periodicals and
unpublished works and rarely available to scholars and researchers. For their
systematic study, a comprehensive descriptive and topographical catalogue of
Orissan inscriptions like the present one. has so far remained a great desideratum
for the benefit of students and researchers working on Orissan as well as
Indian history and culture.
This volume, the first of its
kind, which presents the material in an authentic, analytical and systematic
way is sure to remain a source book for serious researchers and students for
years to come.
