The famous Sri Parthsarathy Swam temple, located in the Triplicane neighborhood of Chennai (India), does not stop providing new information. The latest discovery that has been made is an inscription of Emperor Rajendra I in the northwest corner of the holy sanctuary.
In addition, it has also been found a mural depicting the battle of Kuruksheta, a line of chariots of horses and fighting arms, ready for battle. The mural has come to light thanks to the fact that the cement layer that covered it has fallen off.
This mural is several meters long, but had been inexplicably covered. ANDThe temple is full of inscriptions of the Pallavas, believed to have been responsible for building it during the 6th century AD, the Cholas, the Pandyas and the Vijayanagara kings. These findings have been made during some conservation work in the temple.
It has also been located an incomplete inscription of a panegyric by Rajendra I, which speaks of the fame of the emperor, who ruled between 1012 and 1044 and his conquests reached lands like Vanavasi and what is today the Kalaburgi region.
