Maṅgaleśa (मङ्गलेश) is one of the two sons of Pulakeśin I, the other being Kīrtivarman. On Pulakeśin’s death Kīrtivarman came to the throne (566-96). Kīrtivarman requested Maṅgaleśa to look after the kingdom till his son (Pulikeśin II ) come of age. Maṅgaleśa (596-609) shouldered the burden of the kingdom but later became ambitious. He became so ambitious that he wished to have the throne for his own son.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
