Description: Adipala, the first Paramara king, killed a buffalo-headed demon who used to drink during the night the sacred waters of the Fire fountain, to guard which the Paramara was created. The figure of the P. King, as hunter, is carved on a stele which is cut out around his figure. Next to it and against a pillar-like trunk the king holds his bow of buffalo horn. The top of the stele is carved with mango fruits, etc. The fingers of the right hand show recent damage. At present the figure is identified with the Paramara king Dharavarshadeva.
