The one who translated the text told me that it says "Rup Abdullah Sahib (owner) sanah 1150".
He did, however, add, that there seem to be ssomething strange about the number/year.

Hi Jim:-),
I must admit that the Hero stones area is a new subject to me. Not that I did not know they excisted, but I had not focused in on them - I will try to give them some more of my time.

Ian,


I am not surprised, but I was surprised that these stones went back so far.

Like the kukri formed daggers,...

Interesting to know how old the buildings are, when you see the weapons.

Indian scabbard strap

On most of my Indian scabbards only the 'fish tail' is left, I only have one scabbard where the retaining strap is complete.
Does any of you have scabbards where the strap is intact?
