A colossal image of Varāha, facing east, in the portico of a ruined temple at the south end of the group of temples about 800 m to the west of the village. The inscription is on a flattened (slightly concave) panel on the Varāha's neck (or, as expressed by Hall_1861b:14, it "spans the throat of a colossal image of a swine"). The bottom of the panel is about 180 cm above the ground.

Inscriptions
  1. 8 lines of text. Hall says the first line is considerably longer than the rest, but this is clearly wrong; the last line is, however, considerably shorter than the rest, and is aligned to the centre. The inscribed panel is just barely larger than the inscription. A vertical crack runs across the panel about 1/3 of its width from the right-hand side, damaging and destroying some characters.

The inscription is on the pedestal of the image. No description in Agrawala.

Inscriptions
  1. The inscription occupies five faces of the octagonal base, with the lines running contiguously across the faces. An indentation of the base below line 4 has destroyed some of the top mātrās in line 5, and the bottom has been broken off, leaving line 12 incomplete and any number of further lines lost.

A semi-detached block of rock which bears three inscriptions, %IN00111 in a central position, with %IN00112 above it and %IN00113 below and to the left of it.

An image of a seated Buddha, "very perfect … with a headdress like that now worn by the Abbots in Bhutân. It is a plain cap, fitting close to the head, with long lappets on each side. The figure is naked to the waist, and clad below in a dhoti which reaches to the ankles. The eyes are half closed, as if in meditation." (#Cunningham_1880a:6). No dimensions reported.

Inscriptions
  1. The inscription is on the pedestal, one line along the top edge, another along the bottom edge. The height given here is for the two lines combined; the top line is about 2 cm tall, the bottom is 2.5 cm tall.

A broken sandstone image of which only the pedestal and the feet remain, and which appears to be a standing Buddha. Dimensions are of the extant portion (and I'm not sure which figure goes for which dimension as neither Srivastava nor Agrawala specify this). The proper right portion of the pedestal is broken away.

Inscriptions
  1. Five lines of text; chipping of the upper edge has damaged parts of the first two lines. The characters of the first line are a bit smaller to accommodate the invocation siddham plus an entire verse half. Traces of feet can be discerned on the upper surface, which implies that the pratimācatuṣṭaya referred to an inscription was not a single quadruple image but four separate images.

A sculpture depicting "a large sitting Jina" (Bhandarkar 1981:272).

The proper left side (about one third) of the pedestal, which seems to be an ancient replacement for a broken-off part.

Event History

An image of the Buddha standing on a lotus. The proper left side (about one third) of the pedestal seems to have been lost in antiquity and replaced with a piece of halo from an earlier Buddha image on which the text was re-inscribed. This piece (%O-0038b) was found separately, some distance away from the image, and has now been refitted.

Inscriptions
  1. The inscription is on the pedestal. Dimensions and letter size is from Bhandarkar_1981, but note that 3 lines in letters 3.8 cm in height cannot possibly fit in an area 7 cm tall. Probably the letters are 1/2 rather than 1 1/2 inch high.
