Inscription Stones Of Bengaluru

A special cover on Inscription Stones Of Bengaluru was released on 14th November 2017 at Bengaluru.


 Inscription Stones Of Bangalore' is a civic activism project to raise awareness and protect ancient inscription stones (shila shaasanas) found in the Bengaluru region. Inscriptions stones are original documentation of the people, culture, religion and language of the region dating back to as early as 750CE. Rampant urbanization in Bengaluru has led to destruction of a majority of the 150 stones in the old 'Bangalore' region which were documented by B.L. Rice and others from 1894 to 1905 in the remarkable twelve-volume series Epigraphia Carnatica. This project retraces the footsteps of B.L. Rice to protect and restore the dignity of the last remaining 25 'Inscription Stones Of Bangalore'.


In the front of the cover the image of  oldest Kannada stone inscription in the Bengaluru region dated to about 750 CE (Ganga period) and Inscription stone at Begur with the earliest recorded use of the name 'Bengaluru' dated to 890CE is seen at the back side.
