One copperplate inscription of Kēndupātnā gives the initial year = 1201-2 Çaka, but it makes a mistake of one year in the Çaka year, and therefore presumably also in the aşka year. One inscription (No. 297) apparently makes mistakes both in the Çaka and aşka year, if the tithi and week-day given be correct.
The initial year given by the majority of the inscriptions thus falls in Çaka 1200-1. No regnal year of the succeeding king being known, we have to fall
back upon the year assigned by the Puri cop Last year.
perplates, viz., 34, which, as aŋka, is equal to 28th year. This agrees with the initial year of his grandson Nțsimba Dēva III, as seen below:
Year given in the copperplates
The Kēndupāțnā copperplates, 3 series, end in this king.
Nșsimha Dēva II was son of Bhānu Dāva I by Jākalla Dēvi of Relationship and titles. calukya kula. He is called also Narasimha
Dēva, Vira-Narasimha Dēva, Vira-Cri or ÇriVira Narasimha Dēva, Pratāpa-Vira-çri-Narasimha Dāva, Vira-Fri or Cri-Vira-Naranārasimha Dēva, Anantavarmma-Pratāpa-Vira-Nara. nārasimba Dēva. In the Kēndupātnā copperplates he is said to have had virudas beginning with "Caturdaça-bhuvan-adhipati," lord of the fourteen worlds. The inscription No. 323 of Crikūrmam records the grant of a minis

son of Dõsāditya Dēva. Inscription No. 290 mentions that Narabaritirtha, a governor of Kaliŋgn, built a shrine of Yögānanda Nșsimha in front of the Kūrmēcvara temple (at Çrikūrmam). This officer's name is also mentioned in Nos. 291, 367, and 369 of Crikūrmań, and in 305 and 311 of 1900 of Simhācalam temple. All these inscriptions have been edited with an interesting introduction by Mr. H. Krishna Sastri in the Epigraphia Indica, Vol. VI, pp. 260-8. The inscriptions range from Çaka 1186 to 1215.
Naraharitirtha's father seems to have been a minister. Narahari was a cēlā of Anandatirtba, the famous founder of the Dvaita school of philosophy. According to Narahariya-stötra quoted by Mr. H. K. Sastri, the Guru ordered him to go to the Gajapati king and to be a ruler under him; Naraharitirtha went there and ruled the country for twelve years, the king being an infant. In Raktākşi-samvatsara, or A.D. 1324, he became mahant and died in the year Çrīmukha or A.D., 1333. His inscriptions have 1186 Çaka as the earliest date; and he apparently became ruler of Kaliŋga in the very first year of Bbānu Dāva I, retiring a fow years before the death of Narasimha Dēva II. His father was probably a minister of Nșsimha Dēva I. The long gap of 31 years between A.D. 1293 and A.D. 1324 is not explained ; and therefore the traditional date of 1324 is to be received with caution.

No verified regnal years of this king being available, his initial year is
taken from the last year of Nșsimha Dāva II. First and last year. His last year is the same as the first year
of Nșsimha Dēva III, Çaka 1249-50, deduced from the latter's inscriptions. The intervening period nearly agrees with the year 24 given in the Pari copperplates.
He was son of Nýsimha Dēva II by Cora Dēvi. He is given a fuller Relationship and title,
title in No. 302, of Çri-virā-di-vīra Çrī
"Gayāsadin." He is apparently the same as Historical facts.
Ghiyas-ud-din Tughlak, whose son Ulugh Khān having captured Arangal invaded Jāj-nagar. Ziya-ud-din Bărni says (p. 234):
“The prince then marched towards Jāj-nagar, and there took forty elephants, with which he returned to Tilang. These he seut on to his father."
Is it on the strength of this excursion that Jāj-nagar was included as No. 22 in the list of the 23 provinces to which Ulugh Khān succeeded according to Ibn Batatah ? (see his list in note 1 to p. 203, Thomas' Path. Chron.]. Ziyā-ud-din Bărni, however, omits Jāj-nagar from his list (Elliot, III, p. 236).
