Kadamba Chalukyas | Delhi
various dynasties that controlled Goa during this period are, the Scytho-parthians
(2nd -4th century AD), the Abhiras, Batpura, and the Bhojas ( 4th - 6th
century AD), the Chalukyas ( from 6th - 8th century AD) and the Rashtrakutas
of Malkhed (8th to 10th Century AD). This was followed by the Kadambas
(1006 AD-1356 AD).
The Kadambas were unique because they were a local dynasty that slowly
came to dominate the scene by forging alliances with their neighbors and
overlords, the Chalukyas. They made Chandrapur (Chandor) their capital
(937 AD to 1310 AD). They subsequently moved their capital to Govapuri
on the banks of the Zuari river, the site of today's Goa Velha. The Kadambas
are credited with constructing the first settlement on the site of Old
Goa in the middle of the 11th century, when it was called Thorlem Gorem.
The period of the Kadambas is considered to be the first golden age of
Goa. The death of the last Chalukya king in 1198 weakened their alliance
and this exposed Goa to the vulnerability to Muslim invasions that took
place continuously after that.
The Kadamba Chalukyas
When the Yadava King of Devgiri, Ramchandra (1271-1310 AD) was humbled
by the Khilji Sultan, Alla-ud-din in 1294 AD, the fight for Konkan flared
up between the Hoysala Vir Ballal III and the Kadamba Kavadeva. Kavadeva
defeated Vir Ballal in February 1301 AD with the help of Vetuji and Someshwara
Chalukya at Sangameshvara. Between 1303 and 1305 AD the Yadavas and the
Hoysalas resumed their hostility, but the former had to back off because
of advances of Alla-ud-din. Malik Kafur, the general of Alla-ud-din defeated
Ballal III (1290-1310) and plundered his capital Dvarsamudra. During all
these years, Kavadeva enjoyed authority over Goa region.
The Delhi Sultanate
In his 4th invasion of the Deccan in 1312, Malik Kafur might have destroyed
the Kadamba capital Gopakapattana. In 1318, the capital was shifted to
the fortified, interior city of Chandrapura. However, it too perished
at the hands of the Delhi Sultan Muhammad bin Tughlak (1325-1351 AD).
He appointed Harihara I as his governor for southern territories including
Goa. It is possible that the Goa Kadambas might have regained their lost
Kingdom during 1327-1336 AD. According to a copperplate grant, King Bhimabhupal,
possibly a chieftain under the Kadambas, was ruling over Konkan from Govapuri
in 1351 AD.
