The Inscriptions are doubtlessly among the most important sources for the reconstruction of the History of ancient India. They furnish extremely fascinating study into ancient Indian History. Being contemporary records of the rulers and others, they are more dependable and reliable than other literary sources. Even though some of the Inscriptions might be representing eulogistic and exaggerated accounts in praise of the rulers or persons by whose orders such Inscriptions were engraved, the truth hidden underneath such accounts are never-the-less revealed by seperating the grains from the chaff-by and subjecting the contents to critical scrutiny.

Archaeological excavations coupled with explorations and chance- finds have brought to light a sufficiently large number of Inscriptions engraved on the stone-pillars and rocks, stone-slabs and copper-plates, stone and bronze-images and terracotta seals. By and large, the inscribed seals and coins are more numerous. This inscriptional material, throws flood of light not only on the political but also on the social, religious, economic and administrative history of India.
