CINTRA PRASHASTI OF THE REIGN OF SARANGADEVA

Verse 35. -"The Chaturjataka (this must be the title of a high local official) who was pleased with his virtues, rejoiced thinking 'The Mahattara will restore the sacred place by his pure actions.' "

What these honours conferred on Tripurantaka exactly were, whether Arya and Mahattara refer to offices or were, what is more probable, mere titles, I am unable to determine. I must content myself by pointing out that according to verse 9 of the Somanathapattan Prashasti, Bhava Brihaspati received the same honours from King Jayasimha Siddharaja.

The Ganda Brihaspati, who honoured Tripurantaka, is, of course, not as Dr. Bhagavanlal suggests, the Gand Bhava Brihaspati, who was the contemporary of Jayasimha and of Kumarapala. For these two kings reigned between Vikrama Samvat 1150 and 1229 while the date of our inscription is more than a hundred years later. Moreover, the two Brihaspatis are clearly distinguished from each other by the statements regarding their wives. Bhava Brihaspati was married, according, to verse 35 of the Somanathapattan Prashasti, to Mahadevi, daughter of Sodhala and our Brihaspati to Uma (below verse 43).
