Pandyas – IAS Synopsis
The Pandya dynasty, also known as the Pandyas of Madurai, ruled over large portions of present-day south India. From 4th to 3rd centuries BC, the dynasty passed through two periods of imperial dominance, the 6th to 10th centuries CE, and under the ‘Later Pandyas’ (13th to 14th centuries CE).
The Pandya dynasty witnessed its “golden age” under Maravarman I and Jatavarman Sundara Pandya I (13th century). Jatavarman I (c. 1251) successfully expanded the empire into the Telugu country (as far north as Nellore), south Kerala and conquered northern Sri Lanka. The city of Kanchi became a secondary capital of the Pandyas.
