TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

An inscription recorded on a stone tablet reads thus:

"Lokaintyraltakarakah karunaya prarthodhanurvidyalt;

Daneuapi dadhichikarnasadriso maryyadayambhonidhi,.

Nanasastravicharacharucharitah, kandarparupojjvaIah;

Kamakltyacharanarchakovijayate Sri Malladevonripah,

Prasadamadriduhituscharamaravinda;

Bhaktya karotudanujo vara Nila saile,

Sri Sukladeva imamullasitopalena;

Sake turangagajavedasasankasamkhye,

Tasyaiva priyasodarah prithujasavirendra maulisthali

Manikyam bhajamana kalpavitapi Nilachalemanjulam,

Prasadam muninagavedasasabhrit sake silarajibhih;

Devibhaktimatamvaro rachitavan Sri Sukla

purvadhvajah."

Glory to the King Malladeva (Naranarayan), who by virtue of his mercy, is kind to the people, who in archery is like Arjuna and in charity like Dadhichi and Karna; he is like an ocean of all good ness; and he is versed in many sastras; his character is . excellent: in beauty he is its bright as Kandarpa, he is a worshipper of Kamakhya. His younger brother, Sukladev (Chilarai) built this temple of bright stones on the Nilachal, for the worship of the goddess Durga in 1.487 Saka (1565 A.D.). His be loved brother, Sukladhvaj, again with universal fame, the crown of the greatest heroes, who, like the fabulous Kalpataru, gave all that was devoutly asked of him the chief of all devotees of the goddess, constructed this beautiful temple with heaps of stones on the Nila hill in 1487 Saka."
