Harihar

This page contains the Harihar (Chitradurga District) section from B. Lewis Rice’s (1906) list of British graves in Mysore. Eventually I hope to post his entire book of inscriptions, but now I must settle for cemeteries and graves in the region where I work.

(OIOC R/2/17/106) — Rice compiled his list at the request of the Mysore government, which was impressed by such recent publications of Cotton (1905) on the Madras tombs. To his very great credit, Rice recorded and published all graves in the European cemeteries, not just those of the rich, famous, or unusual.
