IN00171 Tigaon Charter of Pravarasena II
This charter has five copper plates and records the donation of 2000 nivartanas of land by royal measure in the village of Dhuvavāṭaka (Dhruvavāṭaka) to a number of Brāhmaṇas. An additional 26 nivartanas in two other villages is recorded in the third plate as being specifically donated to the Brāhmaṇa Somārya. Both Mirashi 1963: 64 and Shastri 1997: 34-35 argue that this third plate is actually a forgery, inserted into the charter at a later date to benefit Somārya. The first part of the donation (that of the 2000 nivartanas) was issued in exchange for the earlier donation by Pṛthivīṣeṇa I of the village of Vijayavallī-vāṭaka. The charter was issued in the 29th year of Pravarasena II reign and was issued from the temple of Pravareśvara.
