Inscriptions serve as authentic and documented source of information to understand history and various facets of life in the bygone era, said Nalgonda District History Association president D. Surya Kumar.

Speaking on the topic ‘A review of inscriptions of Nalgonda district' at a seminar organised by the History Department at NG Government College here on Friday, Mr. Surya Kumar said nearly 500 inscriptions of immense historical significance were found at places like Panagal, Kolanupaka, Pillalamarri, Yeleswaram and Rachakonda in the district.

The valuable inscriptions revealed the rich cultural and literary heritage of the region. The inscriptions like the one unearthed at Vardhamanukota testify the hoary past, he said adding that about 100 inscriptions found in the district were yet to be edited.

Terming the archaeological museum at Panagal as a treasure trove of rare historical exhibits and objects, he exhorted the students to visit the place and get themselves acquainted with the vibrant history of the region.

NG College Principal K. Bapuji presided over the seminar. HoD V. Ram Reddy also spoke.
