India history and geogprahy
Vijayeśvara (विजयेश्वर) is one of the eight temples located in a space to the north of the village Paṭṭadakal, arrayed in a rectangle of about 180 x 140 m on the western bank of the river. It is now known as Saṃgameśvara.Source: Wisdom Library: India History
Vijayeśvara (विजयेश्वर) is the name of a sacred spot mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—Vijayeśvara is the modern Vijabrar in the Volur pargana.Source: archive.org: Nilamata Purana: a cultural and literary study (history)
Vijayeśvara (Saṃgameśvara) is the name of a temple at Paṭṭadakal in the Karnāṭa-drāviḍa style.—We know from the inscription 28 of Jñānaśivācārya that it was founded by Vijayāditya (696-733): “a great temple of stone has been established by King Vijayāditya holder of such titles;... of this Lord Vijayeśvara...”. That gives the original name of the deity. We do not know when the name Saṃgameśvara came in current usage. That inscription thus gives an indication to the period of construction of the monument, i.e. the reign of Vijayāditya. And it asserts the royal character of the foundation.Source: Archaeological Survey of India: Śaiva monuments at Paṭṭadakal
