inscription[edit]

The ' Gadag
Gadag
inscription'[3] of Vikramaditya VI, records that Taila took the head of Panchala by the terror of the pride of his arm in battle.

The inscription[3] reveals that the battle was fought on the bank of the Godavari & ocean river and a certain Kesava (son of Madhava), fought in the battle and won Taila’s admiration. At the command of Sattiga (Satyashraya) in 1006 A.D., a Lenka Keta fell fighting at the battle of Unukallu, probably against the Cholas. An inscription',[3] dated in Saka 930 (1008 A.D.) of the reign of Satyashraya refers to the siege of the agrahara Kaldugu in the Belvola 300 by Desinga and the destruction of the forces because of the treachery of king Perggade. The inscription[3] of Ballala recounts his victory as And by force, he, the strong one, defeated with cavalry only, and deprived of his sovereignty, the general Brahmana whose army was strengthened by an array of elephants and who acquired 60 tusked elephants with a single tuskless elephant, when, on account of an insult, he was tearing the royal fortune from the family of the Kalachuris of Kalyani.
