Today, the language wars have become the fault lines to divide the people. Such situation naturally gives way to a pertinent question on the history of languages.

And that question is - how the then monarchs of Vijayanagara handled the sensitive and sentimental diversity of languages?

To find answers to this question, the Tirumala inscriptions of Krishnadevaraya serve as useful pointers.

This episode of our series "Into the World of Inscriptions" deal with the language policy of Vijayanagara Empire as told by the Tirumala temple inscriptions of Krishnaraya.
