India history and geographySource: Wikipedia: India History
The Kakatiya dynasty (A.D. 1163-1323) was a South Indian dynasty whose capital was Orugallu, now known as Warangal. The dynasty's name derives from the word “Kakati”, which is variously thought to be the name of a goddess or a place. It is possible that Kakati was the name of a deity worshipped by the early Kakatiya chiefs, and also the name of the place where they resided.
The Kakatiya rulers traced their ancestry to a legendary chief or ruler named Durjaya. Many other ruling dynasties of Andhra also claimed descent from Durjaya. Most of the Kakatiya records do not mention the varna (social class) of the family, but the majority of the ones that do, proudly describe them as Shudra. The regnal years of the early members of the Kakatiya family are not certain. Venna, said to have been born in the family of Durjaya, is the earliest known Kakatiya chief.Source: Shodhganga: Kakati Ganapatideva and his times
The Kākatīya dynasty rose to prominence in the confused political condition of Āndhra during the eleventh and twelth centuries. The Kākatīyas, who had originally entered Āndhradeśa as the generals of the Rāṣṭrakūṭas, built up their political base in the Anumakoṇḍa—Warangal region. Under the rule of Rudradeva in A.D. 1158 the Kākatīyas became an independent power.Source: OpenEdition books: Vividhatīrthakalpaḥ (History)

The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages.
