Photograph of an inscription slab in the Ali Bhavani Temple, at Patna, Khandesh District, taken by Henry Cousens around 1880, from the Archaeological Survey of India Collections. This temple is mentioned by Henry Cousens in "Revised List of Antiquarian Remains in the Bombay Presidency", vol.VIII, 1987. He records the inscription as: "the grant of land and money by Sonhadadeva to the college established for the study of the Siddhantasiromani and other works of the astronomer Bhaskkaracharya". The inscription is part of the wall on the outside of the courtyard which was built partly from old temple materials. Therefore it is probably from an earlier structure.
