Epigraphy Club

Epigraphy is the study of inscriptions on rocks, pillars, temple walls, copper plates and other writing material. It is one of the most fascinating and instructive studies. It deals with the art of writing, which distinguishes man from animals and provides us with an instrument for conservation and transmission of historical traditions from generation to generation. Inscriptions are the main source for reconstructing the history and culture of ancient civilizations. It serves as primary documentary evidence to establish legal, socio-cultural, literary, archaeological, and historical antiquity on the basis of engravings. Dr. P.Sakthivel, Associate professor of Physics. Is incharge for the epigraphy club. He organizes meeting and encourages the students to visit the inscriptions in the historical places
