India history and geogprahy
Nātavāḍi 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.(Source): Wisdom Library: History of Ancient India
Natavadi is a region in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It comprises, parts of Vijayawada and Nandigama mandals in Krishna district and Madhira of Khammam district.(Source): Wikipedia: India History
Nātavāḍi is one of the ancient dynasties from India (Āndhradeśa or Andhra Pradesh), conquered and subjugated by Gaṇapatideva (r. 1199-1262 A.D.) who let them rule their territory as an independent māṇḍalika.—The Nātavāḍis were an important line of chiefs who served the Western Cālukyas in the beginning and the Kākatīyas later on. The epigraphs from Narsarapet dated A.D. 1101 and Nidikoṇḍa dated A.D. 1104 refer to Mahāmaṇḍaleśvara Buddharāja and Duggarāja, the chiefs of Nāṭavāḍi, a territorial division extending in the West as far as Nidigoṇḍa during the reign of Kalyāṇa Cālukya Vikramāditya.
Originally, the Nāṭavāḍi region comprised modern Nandigama taluk of Krishna district and had its capital at Māḍapalle which can be identified with the village Mādapalli near Madhira, a taluk head quarters in the Warangal district.(Source): Shodhganga: Kakati Ganapatideva and his times
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.
