STONE INSCRIPTION, CHANDIGARH, DISTRICT CHANDIGARH

This stone inscription is now preserved in the Government Museum and Art Gallery at Chandigarh. The find-spot of the inscription is not known. The record is dated in Vikrama 1[6]54 (1597 A.D.) and it is in Sanskrit language and Nagari characters. This inscription furnishes the genealogy of a ruling family mentioning the names of Raja Jagadasha[Chandra], his son Vikramasimha, his son Rajasimha, his son Dilipasimha and his son (name lost). It records the erection of a sopana (flight of steps) by a lady whose name is not clear.
