Inked estampages of the numerous inscriptions in the various temples on Mount Abu were prepared by Mr. H. Cousens, Superintendent of the Archaeological Survey of the Bombay Presidency, in 1902, and sent by Professor Hultzsch to Professor Kielhorn, who made them over to me for publication. The 32 inscriptions edited below are from the temple of Neminatha and refer to the erection and endowment of that building by Tejahpala, the minister of the Chaulukya king Viradhavala. At present this sanctuary seems to be known by the name of 'the temple of Vastupala and Tejahpala'; but as the inscriptions clearly show that appellation to be erroneous, the foundation being ascribed to Tejahpala alone, I should prefer either to call it after the saint to whom it was dedicated, or to use the original name which, as again shown by the inscriptions, was Lunasimhavasahika or Lunavasahika.
