KURNOOL: Historian Prof Chenna Reddy said inscriptions at Honnenahalli, Tumkur district in Karnataka state ascertained that October 17 is the death anniversary of Vijayanagara Emperor Sri Krishnadevaraya. Until April this year, there was no clue to confirm the exact date of the demise of the king.

For the first time we got the epigraphical evidence about the demise of Kṛishṇadēvarāya in Śaka 1451, Virōdhi, śu. 15, lunar eclipse, which corresponds to 1529 A.D., October 17, Sunday, he said.
