Note

Epi. Rep. nos. 424 to 440 of 1918 have been classified as referring to this temple in the “List of Inscriptions” copied by the office of the Superintendent for Epigraphy, Madras (up to March 1938): but this is a wrong classification, and the attention of the Government Epigraphist has been drawn to it.
