Memorial Stones

Title:Memorial Stones
Author:Verghese, Anila
Enumeration:Vol. 53 Issue no. 1; September 2001, p. 40-49
Abstract:This paper on memorial stones at Hampi deals with the variety of such stones found at the site, describing their location as well as the significance of such sculptures. The memorials include the satikals or sati-stones, the sati-virakals or sati cum hero stones, the virakals or hero-stones, as well as the suicide memorials. A brief account is also given of a group of pre-Vijayanagara memorial stones located at Kummata, a site near Hampi, which is of interest not only because of the high artistic quality of these memorials but also because many of them commemorate known historical personages.
