Massa – Raja Raja Chola I

The Chola Kingdom is an ancient, there has been references made in Mahabharatha and even in Ashokan inscriptions.  It is known that Karikala was the Chola ruler who reigned in the 2nd century AD.  During Karikala’s reign, the capital city was moved to Kaveripattanam from Uraiyur.  Nedumudikilli seems to have been the successor of Karikala, whose capital town was set to fire by the sea pirates.  The frequent attacks of Pallavas, Cheras and Pandyas declined the Chola power and it was in the 8th century AD, Cholas glory began to shine when the Pallavas power declined.


On obverse five petal flower or banana in left hand, spheres with dots,
With the two fingers of hand appearing as legs it look like a stick human. Could this be a medieval die-cutter’s hidden expression of oppression by an evil Raja


On reverse Ra below Ja.
