South Indian Inscriptions


EPIGRAPHIA INDICA

No. 16.- TWO BRAHMI AND KHAROSHTHI ROCK-INSCRIPTIONS
IN THE KANGRA VALLEY.
BY. J. PH. VOGEL, LL.D.

The first of these two rock-­inscriptions was discovered by Sir E. C. Bayley at Kanhiâra, three miles to the east of Lower Dharmsâlâ on the bank of the Mânjî torrent, and was edited by him in 1854 from drawings made by Lieutenants Crofton and Dyas.[6] In 1875 it was reproduced again and discussed by General Cunningham.[7]

The second inscription I found last summer in the course of an archæological tour in the Kâṅgṛa district near a place called Paṭhyâr, situated nine miles south of Kanhiâra on the bank of the Baner rivulet, at a distance of about one mile from the Dâdh Travellers’ Bungalow.
