Patan is a small town under Junagadh on the south-west coast of Kathiawad. There is a
temple dedicated to the Goddess Bhadrakali in this town in which this stone is to BE found
to the right of the entrance door.
It mentions the
building and repairing of several temples of Shiva and Ambika as well as the digging of
Vao and grants of land to learned Brahmanas by King Kumarapala through the influence of
his religious preceptor, Bhava Brahaspati.
1.Bow to Shiva. May Shankara, the beloved of Bhavani,
protect you, who, when thus addressed by his consort with anger "Because I allow the
presence of Ganga in your Jata, you O cheat! cause her to play on your ears and by degrees
you have brought her into your lap," said, "O, best of women! this, the fame of
Guru Ganda, is only as an ornament of my eyebrows."
