Kundapur: Stone edict of Vijayanagara empire period found


Daijiworld Media Network - Kundapur (SP)

Kundapur, Dec 4: On Wednesday, a stone edict dating back to the period of Vijayanagara empire was found in the agricultural field of Janardana Sherigar near Santavara Lord Veeranjaneya temple in Kandavara village.

The edict has the sign of the sun with the message, 'let this remain eternally till the sun and the moon last'. In the left, along with the stone form of the bull, 'Nandi', a Lingam of Lord Shiva is carved. On the right side of the Lingam are a pedestal holding a lamp and a sword. This is learnt to be the edict belonging to 15th or 16th century AD (about 400 to 500 years old).

The edict was discovered by Pradeep Kumar Basrur, who has an interest in the study of history, under the guidance of history researcher Dr Kishore Kumar Shetty. Bharat Gudigar and Janardana Sherigar supported them.

    The king of Vijayanagara is held in great reverence by the GSB community esp. from Kochi.

    His name is included in the lullabies(along with the king of Travancore) sung by the mothers.This is because he ruled the area from Goa to Cochin, and this was a golden period for South India as trade flourished with Europe ,Arabs and Persians.

    Local GSB community can throw more light on this subject.We should learn from the past, live in the present and be prepared for the future.

    It was during the period of Vijayanagara Empire that GSB and Catholic communities migrated from Goa. The then Kings of Vijayanagara were too generous who allowed the migrants to settle freely in their lands.

    'let this remain eternally till the sun and the moon last'......if the sun lasts then moon will not be there for sure. And if the sun lasts then no living beings can survive.
