THE GANGAS OF TALAKAD

 

(525 TO 725 A.D.)

 

 

BY DR S.SRIKANTHA SASTRI, M.A., D.LITT

 

 

The genealogy and the chronology of the Early Gangas of Talakad, with reference to all the contemporary South Indian dynasties, to the end of Durvinita’s reign (C. 535 A.D.) on the basis of the Hebbata grant of Durvinita (C.525 A.D.) as determined by me(1) may be supplemented by a systematic study of Ganga history for a further period of two centuries. In order to remove any lingering doubts of certain scholars who have still persisted in assigning Durvinita to the seventh century, making him a contemporary of Pulakesin II and Vikramaditya I of the Badami Calukya dynasty, the history of the successors of Durvinita – Muskara, Sri Vikrama, Bhu Vikrama, Sivamara (Sripurusa I) and his grand-son, Sripurusa II should be properly investigated in the light of the newly discovered inscriptions.

 

The initial and final years of Durvinita’s reign are fairly certain on the basis of the Nallala and Gummareddipura grants (Ia) of Durvinita’s firtieth year, verifiable as 535 A.D. except the doubtful Mallohalli grant of Avinita (Ib) dated in his twenty-ninth year,
