Talikota Batlle-Rakshasi-Tangadi-Banni Hatti-Battle-Vijayanagara Empire Downfall After the death of Sri Krishna Devaraya his brother Achuta Raya ascended the throne. Next to him Sadasiva Raya ascended the throne. During his period the real power was passed into the hands of his minister Aliya Ramaraya. Aliya Ramaraya was an able administrator. But his policy of helping one against the other in turn and creating dissensions among the Muslim states was failed. The Battle of Rakshasi-Tangadi also known as Talikota Battle, Baanni Hatti Battle.
