This is an inscription of the Maukhari king Sarvavarman (c. sixth century CE) found in the fort at Asirgarh, north of the city of Burhanpur, in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is in Sanskrit with the upper part showing many emblems—a bull, an umbrella, and two men carrying axes and a sunshade and a stick.

The text of the inscription states the genealogy of the Maukhari kings beginning with Harivarman. It mentions the kings succeeding him as Adityavarman, Ishvaravarman, Ishanavarman and finally Sarvavarman, repectively.

Copy from a personal copy of plates published by John Fleet with Inscriptions Of The Early Gupta Kings And Their Successors, in 1888 CE.
