Jiemorandum regarding the recently discovered ruins of Ranode, in Scindeah's Dominions; by HENRY Cope, Secretary Archaeological Society of Dehli.”

The Right Honorable the Governor General having most liberally sanctioned, by a late order, the appointment of Lieut. F. Maisey, of the 67th Regt. N. I., to investigate the ruins of Ranode, in compliance with the suggestion of the Archaeological Society of Dehli, it may be considered desirable to publish the principal inscription on those ruins, with the view of eliciting information contemporary with the researches of Lieut. Maisey; and I have the honor to submit a brief account of the place, drawn up from the Memoranda supplied to the Society by Capt. R. R. Ellis of Shansee, when the inscription was originally forwarded by him. Ranode is situate in the Chandoree district of Scindeeah's dominions, about 35 miles nearly due South of the famous fort of Nurwur, and at no great distance (apparently 6 or 7 miles) east of the high road from Agra to Bombay. Although marked in the maps, as a place of some consequence, it is not mentioned in Hamilton's Gazetteer, and I find mo account of it elsewhere. It is close on the banks of the Airawati, a small stream which takes its rise at Indore (not the capital of Hol. kar's dominions) three kos from Ranode, and where there is a stone image of Bhim Sen, one of the Pandu princes, and also the remains of ancient buildings. The edifice in which the inscription, forwarded to the Society by Capt. Ellis, was found, was first brought to light by Capt. A. Dewar, commanding the 1st Calvary of Scindeah's contingent, and is known in the neighbourhood as the “Kokai Mahal.” It is built of gigantic masses of hard freestone, without any ornamental sculpture, beautifully fitted together without a particle of cement. From the rough sketches drawn apparently by a native, and which accompanied the inscription, it is clear that this edifice is one of considerable extent; the inscription is cut on an erect tablet, situate at the end of one of the varandahs of the Palace.
