Udaypur उदयपुर (Madhya Pradesh). Record of a temple procession in V.S. 1394
Inscription in the southern forehall (mukhamaṇḍapa) of the Udayeśvara temple at Udaypur, district Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh.

The record is badly weathered on the sides but contains six lines written in devanāgarī script. It refers to a jātrā, i.e. yātrā festival and pilgrimage by one Harirāja (?) on Thursday, second day of the dark lunar fortnight of Māgha in the expired Vikrama year 1394, which gives the date 8 January 1338 CE.
