India history and geographySource: Shodhganga: Temple management in the Āgamas (history)
Nallā is the name of a tax meaning “tax on cattle”, according to [medieval] temple inscriptions.—When lands were made over to temples as devadāna by kings, chieftains or other local residents, the temple became entitled to collect all the tax [viz., Nallā] from that land. In return the temple also had responsibilities towards that land. It is also known as Narpaśu, Narkiḍā or Nallerudu.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
