Rashtrakuta Dynasty-Dandtidurga

Rashtrakutas were the feudatories of Badami chalukyas before they became independent.

Rashtrakuta kingdom was established in 753 A.D. and ruled upto 973 AD.

Rashtrakutas belonged to Lattalura (modern Latur) of Maharashtra.

Dantidurga was the founder of Rashtrakuta kingdom.

He was the feudatory of Badami Chalukya king Vikramaditya II.

The conflict between Badami Chalukyas and Pallavas made Chalukya kingdom weak.

Taking advantage of the situation Dantidurga declared independence during the period of Kirtivarma II.

Dantidurga occupied Malwa, Kalinga, Mahakosala, Nasik, Poona, Satara, Kolhapur etc.

He performed the hiranyagarbhadana ceremoney at Ujjain after his victory over Malwa.

Dantidurga performed the hiranyagarbhadana ceremoney at Ujjain after his victory over Malwa.

The famous Jaina scholar, Jinasena, was in the court of Dantidurga.
