10 Questions on South Indian Kingdoms during Post Gupta period

Post Gupta Period saw rise of strong kingdoms in South. The Chalukya dynasty ruled from Badami in Karnataka between 550 and 750, and then again from Kalyani between 970 and 1190. The Pallavas of Kanchipuram were their contemporaries further to the south. With the decline of the Chalukya empire, their feudatories, the Hoysalas of Halebidu, Kakatiyas of Warangal, Seuna Yadavas of Devagiri, and a southern branch of the Kalachuri, divided the vast Chalukya empire amongst themselves around the middle of 12th century.

    1)Societies discussed during the second half of the course, during the “middle period” of history often incorporated many social, cultural, administrative and religious aspects of the Classical societies that came before them. (rome, han china, mauryan india, the olmecs, Zoroastrianism Persia) chose at least two of the following societies and discuss how these societies looked back to their classicial predecessors (med Europe, the Islamic world, gupta india, the mayans, post-han china)
