The Ancient City of Vengipura: Archaeological Excavations at Peddavegi

 
I.K. Sarma (Author)
Synopsis Vijaya Vengipura was a flourishing city in ancient Andhra after the decline of Sriparvata Vijayapuri of the Ikshvaku dynasty by about 4th Centyry A.D. Infact Prolemy (140 A.D.), refers to Vengi as the capital city of the /Salankayanas. During the Vishnukundi and early Eastern Chalukyan rule Vengipura played a crucial role as a political centre as well as a great cultural capital of Andhradesa. Due to indiscriminate occupation and devastation caused by the locals, Archaeological Survey of India at the direction of the Central Government planned systematic excavation and documentation of the various places in this village during the years 1984-87. Indeed, that was too late but whatever cultural remains could be retrieved were carefully recorded and studied. The present work is the result of that venture by the author who is ably assisted by a devoted team of staff of the Excavations Branch, Nagpur.
