Pallava Empire emblem



While their origins in the 3rd century are obscure, their later power showed resilience into the 6th century CE. The base for this dynasty is Tondai-Mandalam on the eastern coast of south India.

The Pallavas had absorbed the ancient kingdom of Chola earlier. It is assumed that our period is just after the rule of the Kalabras.
