705 years old inscription found in Talegaon Dhamdhere
705 years old inscription was found in the excavation of a house at Talegaon Dhamdhere. This inscription is in the era of King Ramdevaray, hence a new history has spread on the Pune region, said senior historian Pandurang Balkavade.
The height of this inscription is 7 ft 1 inches, 20 inches wide and 16 inches thick. Shivling is carved in the center. On the left side, there is the moon on the sun and the right side. It has 12 lines. Ramdevray is mentioned in this as Pratap Chakravarty Ram Chandra Deo. Provincial governor Tamal Saddu and local manager Gondai Naik are mentioned.
Balakwade said that the history of the defeat of Ramdev Rai by Allaudin khlji in the year 1294 is known, but this inscription shows that it is wrong to say that all his empire was lost. The invasion of Khilji was the first Islamic invasion of South India. After the defeat of Ramdev, gradually the power of the Yadavas came and Islam was established on the whole of Maharashtra and South India.
