India history and geogprahy

Karmarāṣṭra is the name of a viṣaya (region) of the ancient kingdom of Veṅgi, ruled over by the Eastern Cālukyas from the 7th to 12th centuries. A viṣaya was divided into a number of villages. Smaller villages were called Grāmaṭikā and Puṇḍi. The kingdom of Veṅgi comprised Andhra and part of Kaliṅga for more than five hundred years and during this period, the Eastern Cālukyas developed there a prosperous civilisation. Their reign advanced the society and brought with them scientific advancements, religious freedom, literature and various forms of art and architecture.
