Tiruvarur, Negapatam Taluk, Tanjore District.

On the south wall of the Achalesvara shrine, Tyagarajasvamin temple.

This records a gift of two silver vessels in which offerings were to be made to god Tiruvaraneri-Alvar by Udaiyapirattiyar Sembian-Mahadeviyar for the merit of Uttama-Choladeva. This is evidently an inscription of the reign of Rajaraja I whose uncle was Uttama-Chola.

This records an agreement by the uravar of Tiruvarur to supply an uri of oil every day for burning 2 perpetual lamps before the god Tiru-Araneri-Udaiyar, for an endowment of three veli of land at Menmangalam made by a certain Kurukalan Tirumulattanat-Tondar. The standard measure is called Tirunilakantan. The writing belongs to about the twelfth century A.D.
