DEVELOPMENTS IN THE SOUTH

 DEVELOPMENTS IN THE SOUTH

By the beginning of the 7th century AD, the Pallavas of Kanchi, the Chalukyas of Badami and the Pandyas of Madurai emerged as three major states. This entire phase is marked by land grants to the Brahmins on a wide scale. All of them were strong champions of brahminism and performed numerous Vedic sacrifices.

 

 

Construction of beautiful temples is another major feature of this era. The most famous of the Pallava temples was in Mahabalipuram, which  was built by Narsimhvarman. This city is also famous for its shore-temples. Kanchi, their capital was graced by the Kailashnath Temple, another well-known monument.
