Title: A tablet inscription at the Kvayanā Sataḥ in Chobhar memorializing its renovation by Nārāṃ Govindadāsa (VS 1996)
Type, original: Inscription; Original


Abstract: The inscription reports that the Kvayanā Sataḥ suffered damages during the 1934 CE earthquakes, and the members of the responsible guṭhī did not want to renovate it except for Nārāṃ Govindadāsa Bābu Rājavaṃsi, the grandson of the founder of the Sataḥ, Viṣṇudāsa. Therefore, he lodged a complaint with the government against his fellow guṭhī members. In response to this complaint, on the 4th solar day of Kārtika in 1938 CE, the government ordered the Chebhaḍela office of Lalitpur to have the guṭhī members to renovate the Sataḥ. To avoid the obligation imposed by the Chebhaḍela, they left the guṭhī. Thus, the complainant, Nārāṃ Govindadāsa Bābu Rājavaṃsi alone took care of the renovation of the Sataḥ funded from him own wealth. The renovation was completed in 1939 CE.
