The Kadambas of Goa and their Inscriptions

S.L. Shantakumari (Author)

The Kadambas of Goa were an offshoot of the earliest Kadamba family of Karnataka viz., the Kadambas of Banavasi who ruled between 4th-6th cent. A.D. With the rise of Chalukyas of Badami they lost their imperial status and some members of the family migrated to the different places and served as subordinates of the imperial rulers.

The Kadambas of Goa were one such family who were feudatories under Chalukyas of Kalyana and continued to serve the subsequent ruling families also.

Though feduatories, they almost enjoyed a regal status with their own administrative system in their jurisdiction which covered Goa and almost the whole of Dharwad and Belgaum districts of Karnataka.

Their inscriptions are a living evidence of their contribution to the growth of religion, society and culture of the area. The text given here are the result of extensive field work undertaken by the author herself. The book contributes immensely to the field of study of regional history.
