India history and geogprahy

Turubhāmra is the name of a village mentioned in the “British museum stone inscription of the reign of Haripāladeva”. There are several villages of the name Turbhe corresponding to it in the Ṭhāṇā-tālukā of the Ṭhāṇā district and in the Polādpur tālukā of the Kolābā District. As no boundary villages have been mentioned in this record, it is not possible to say which of them was intended to be referred to.

Accordingly, “The channels around the (public) well, belonging to the residents of the village Turubhāmra dedicated to the god Agnihotra, have been destroyed by some evil-minded person”.

This stone inscription (mentioning Turubhāmra) was apparently found somewhere is North Koṅkaṇ and is now deposited in the British Museum, London. It records that some miscreants did damage to the channel (nāḍa) near a well belonging to the residents of the village Turubhāmra and dedicated to the god Agnihotra. It is dated in Śaka 1076, the cyclic year Bhāva and the full-moon tithi of Māgha.
