Temples And Legends Of Bihar Page8

It is extremely unfortunate that the temples of Bihar, excepting one or two like the Buddha Gaya temple, have received very little attention from the scholars. Quite a few of the temples have inscriptions, which do not appear to have been studied properly as yet, with regard to their wider implications. @ Here only a few temple inscriptions will be mentioned. In the Maniar temple at Rajgir, have inscriptions in the Kushana character of the first century A.D. There are a number of inscriptions of the Mahabodhi temple at Bodh Gaya.

The Narsingh temple of Gaya has also an inscription. The Sun temple at Kandaha, in Saharsa district, has an inscription on the stone doorframes and mentions the names of three kings of the oinwara dynasty. The Akshaibat temple at Gaya records the erection of two lingas. The Krishnadwarika, temple inscription in Gaya is an invocation to Vasudeva and records the erection of a temple of Janardan.

@ See Select Inscriptions of Bihar, by Prof. RadhaKrishna Choudhury (1958).
