India history and geography

Source: What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras

Satyāśraya (सत्याश्रय) of the Cālukya line of kings is mentioned in the Paṭṭaṇakuḍi plates of Avasara II.—“Having vanquished Kakkala in battle, Tailapa became king, looking resplendent in the Cālukya family—a lion to the elephants in the form of his enemies. His son is the well-known king Satyāśraya, fond of vanquishing his enemies, courageous by nature, and distinguished for his sole delight in valour. While the illustrious Satyāśraya of the flourishing family of the Cālukyas is thus governing the Raṭṭapāṭī (i.e. the kingdom of the Rāṣṭrakūṭas)—.. There was the lord of the Vidyādharas, Jīmūtavāhana by name, a good son of Jīmūtakētu, who sacrificed his life to Garuḍa... From him was descended the Śilāra family, the best among the royal families of Siṃhala—which became extremely powerful as it had the good fortune of the blessings of abundant beings”.

These copper plates (mentioning Satyāśraya) were found by a Brāhmaṇa of Khārepāṭan, a town in the Devagaḍ tālukā of the Ratnāgiri District. The inscription refers itself to the reign of the Śilāra king, Māṇḍalika Raṭṭarāja. As his predecessors were loyal feudatories of the Rāṣṭrakūṭas, it gives first the genealogy of that family from Dantidurga to Kakkala. The inscription is dated, in lines 41-42, on the full-moon tithi of Jyeṣṭha in the śaka year 930, the cyclic year being Kīlaka.
