Pallava

 

the name of the ruling family of Pallava, a state that existed from the third to the ninth century in southern India, in what is now northern Tamil Nadu. Three Pallava dynasties are known. The first lasted from the third to the sixth century; the second, from the late sixth to the mid-eighth century; and the third, from the mid-eighth to the late ninth century. The Pallavas reached their greatest power under Narasimha I (seventh century), who defeated the Chalukyas of Vatapi and made a successful incursion into Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). In 893 the Pallava state was destroyed by the Cholas. Some vassal rulers from the Pallava family continued from the tenth to the 13th century.
