He was greatest among all the rulers of Sangama dynasty. He defeated kalinga army. He annexed Knodavidu and established his authority upto Rajahmundry. But he was defeated by the Bahmani Sultan, Ahmad Shah and was forced to accept a humiliating treaty. During the reign of Devaraya II, persian ambassador Abdul Razak visited the Vijayanagara kingdom in 1443 A.D.

Chamarasu was his court poet. The Telugu poet Srinadha of Kondavidu received falicitation "Kanakabhisekam" from Devaraya II. The poet Dindima was in his court. Mahanataka Sudhanidhi was his Sanskrit work. He built Vittalaswamy temple in Hampi. He was a saivite and tolerant towards other religions.

The downfall of Sangama dynasty was started after Devaraya II. After Devaraya II, Mallikarjuna, Virupaksha ascended the throne. But they were weak and inefficient. Hence Bahmani Sultans and Gajapatis attacked the kingdom. At this situation the governor of Chandragiri Saluva Narasimha defeated Virupaksha, the last ruler of Sangama dynsty and ascended the throne and saved the kingdom.
