1903 Excerpt: ...Coimbatore Bombay Gazetteer, Vol. I. Part II. p.
496). No Hoysala inscriptions prior to the time of Vira-S6m svara
(No. 602 of 1905) have been found so far in Coimbatore and Salem.
His dominion in Kongu seems to have been short-lived, if he had any
at all. The Pandya king Jatavarman Sundara-Pandya I. (A.D.
1251-61), whose conquest of the Hoysalas is known from other
