The Rule of the Chalukya-Cholas in Andhradesa

M. Krishna Kumari (Author)
Synopsis The book presents an enlightening account of Chalukya Cholas, focusing the transitional phase between the rule of Eastern Chalukyas and the Kakatiyas in the Andhra History. The period of about two centuries of medieval Andhra has been dealt with multi-dimensionally: political, social, economical, architectural and religious, including the decline of Jainism and re-emergence of Saivism and Vaishnavism with their further divisions. In this backdrop, the secular outlook of the rulers of that area has also crystallized. The book is an outcome of brilliant scholarly research, thorough probing and discerning into the existing epigraphical and literary sources. Since the chronological account of the period is not available, the author has gleaned through the stone and copper plate grants and the neglected Telugu stone inscriptions of the later Chalukya-Cholas. The evidence of the Mallavaram plates of Prantaka Chola have also been dealt with in this exhaustive study. This book will open new vistas of knowledge to the researchers, general readers and students of Indian history, particularly of Andhradesa for which corroboratory evidence is scarcely available.
