India history and geogprahy

Aulakīyā (औलकीया) is the name of a village mentioned in the “Ṭhāṇā plates of Arikesarin”.—Accordingly, “... and also the village Aulakīyā, the boundaries of which are as follows: on the east a tank; on the south Govinī; on the west Carikā; on the north Kalibalāyacholī”.

These copper plates (mentioning Aulakīyā) were found in digging for some works at the Fort of Tanna (Ṭhāṇā) the capital of Salset. The object of the present plates was to record the grant, by the Śilāhāra king Arikesarin, of three villages in the Vatsarāja-viṣaya to the family priest and teacher Tikkapaiya on the occasion of a lunar eclipse which occurred on the fifteenth tithi of the bright fortnight of Kārttika in the Śaka year 939.
