Rare Renati Chola era inscription unearthed - The Hindu - 01-09-2020
A rare inscription dating back to the Renati Chola era has been unearthed in a remote village of Kadapa district in Andhra Pradesh.
The Telugu Cholas of Renadu (also called Renati Cholas) ruled over the Renadu region, the present-day Kadapa district.
They had the unique honour of using the Telugu language in their inscriptions belonging to the 6th and 8th centuries.
The inscriptions at Gandikota at Jammulamadugu and Proddatur are proof of this fact.
The inscription was written in archaic Telugu.
It was assigned to the 8th century A.D. when the region was under the rule of the Chola Maharaja of Renadu.
The inscription also throws light upon the priority given to morality in those days
