I was searching this for a long time, but never seriously enough. Madala Panji is the name of the chronicle maintained by Puri Jagannatha Temple. It contained a list of kings who ruled Orissa from time immemorial.
Only after you reach medieval age, there is a semblance of practicality in dates. However, one should note one thing — this list is not of the kings of Kalinga. It is of the kings who ruled Puri. It can be a petty ruler for all it means. Though Puranas talk about the dynastic lines, they list out in details, only the dynasties which ruled Magadha. That raises an interesting question, whether Srimukha was the first Satavahana ruler or the first Satavahana ruler who ruled Magadha.
All those things are beyond the discussion. The main thing is, we need to be more focussed in bringing such data out, which lists out the rulers and details regarding them, ruling not so prominent areas in Indian polity. Also to note is that, how did they come up with the date for Yudhistira. What was the basis for that date? You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
