Aranattarmalai inscription

The inscription was discovered from the Aranattarmalai, near Pukazhur, in the Karur taluk near Tiruchirappalli in Tamil Nadu in 1965. The language of the Sangha-era inscription is a mix of Tamil and Brahmi. It has references to three Chera kings - Athan Cheral Irumborai, his son Perumkadumko and the latter's son Elamkadumko. It supports the Chera dynasty based on the Sangha era works.
