  • Attractions

    Two interesting antiquities are to be seen in the neighbourhood of Tosham. A barahdari and another Sanskrit inscription on a rock on the face of the hill to the west of the town.

    The Tosham rock inscription is an epigraphic record documenting the establishment of a monastery and the building of water tanks for followers of the Satvata religion. Found in Tosham, Haryana (India), It is not dated but can be assigned to the early fifth century CE. The inscription records the lineage and building activities of a line of Satvata religious preceptors (acarya) dating to the 4th and 5th centuries CE. This is an important record for the history of the Vaisnava faith. The kinship and clan position of the Satvatas is described in the article on the Yadavas.

    It does not appear to have been as yet satisfactorily translated. It seems to refer to a Scythian king Tushara who appears to have conquered the Gupta Galotkacha who reigned from about A. D. 50 to A. D. 79 and is referred to in the inscription. There appears to be evidence to show that the Tosham hill was a monastery of Budhist monks or Bhikshus. The date of the inscription is said to be A. D. 162-224.
