People of India, specially Bangalore consider the name of Bengalooru associated with several ancient stories and happenings.

This inscription contains the name of "Bengalooru", and this name Bengalooru refers to a battle that was fought at that place. Rao Bahadur R Narasimhachar, in his Mysore Archeological Report (1914-15), dates this inscription to the 9th century AD.
