Are the Images at Hirejantakal Buddhist ones?

Title:Are the Images at Hirejantakal Buddhist ones?
Author:Sundara . A
Publication:Itihasa Darshana / Karnataka Itihasa Academy
Enumeration:Vol 8, 1993
Abstract:In the Archeological Report of the Hyderabad State published in 1930 Leonardman wrote about a panel of sculptures with eight figures from a natural cave at a hillock near Hirejantakal in Gangavati taluk on the basis of Kannada inscription as Buddhistic. But the epigraphist here is of the opinion that the images are of the 18th century Veerasaiva saint Siddalinga yogi, dated saka 1684 (1762). What Leonardman identified as Rakshasa is actually Mahishmardini and Veerabhadra.On a rock the rare graffiti mentioned in the report is a Madhwa deity.
