A 1,100-year-old stone inscription of the Parantaka Chola period has been discovered at a Siva temple at Ezhuchur, near Padappai, in Sriperumbudur taluk of Kancheepuram district, 56 km from here. The inscription, datable to 920 A.D., is in Tamil. It was found in the door jamb of the temple which is called Nal-Inakkisvarar (Deity of Good Harmony). The temple is in a highly dilapidated condition now.
According to Dr. T. Satyamurthy, Superintending Archaeologist, Archaeological Survey of India (Chennai Circle), the inscription records the gift of solid gold by the local headman called Nocci Kilan Kaliya Peruman of the village named Velima Nallur of Velima Nallur-Nadu.
