Found this inscription along with Sri. Swaminatha sthapati, from the steps adjacent to Baṅgāru amman shrine at śrī Kāmākṣi temple who resides at the heart of Kāñcīpuram. I astonished by this discovery since this is the first inscription of Rājasiṁha pallava found in a non-pallava period temple at Kāñcīpuram. The inscription is fragmentary and in calligraphic Grantha script of 8th CE which was used in Kailāsanātha temple, (Rājasiṁhapallaveśvaram) Kāñcīpuram.
The inscription reads thus
… रा च (मा) क्ष्मानाथैः। अदृश्यभार्य्यः उ….
… rā ca (mā) kṣmānāthaiḥ| adṛśyabhāryyaḥ u….
Meaning of the passage is “By the lords of wealth and earth. The one, whose wives are not seen” u…
The second sentence i.e Adṛśyabhāryyaḥ epithet resembles the Sanskrit “Asūryam Paśyāḥ Rājadārāḥ” which means the royal wives don’t see other man including the sun. This epithet is not recorded so far in other inscriptions of Rājasiṁha pallava.
I think this inscription, though not politically useful to track the history of temple, possesses significance since for the first time notices in the premises of the temple.
