STONE INSCRIPTION, JAGADALPUR, DISTRICT BASTAR
This inscription, kept in the State Museum, Jagadalpur originally found at Khamargaon, Jagadalpur Taluk, is in Sanskrit (corrupt) language and Nagari characters of about the 13th century A.D. It belongs to the reign of the Nagavamsi ruler Mahamandalesvara Ranaka Jayasighadeva and records the grant of the village Jambu-grama by the ruler to god Jnanesvaradeva towards worship and food offerings. It also mentions a certain Srikesa, who probably was the pontiff entrusted with the grant of the village.
