This book recounts the History of the Andhra Pradesh Country from 1000 to 1500 A.D. including many dynasties (for example. the Reddis of Korukonda and the Eruva Chola of Rajahmundry)....

Part 5 - Choda Raju (A.D. 1132-35)

Like his father’s, choda’s reign too was short. His earliest inscription dated A,D. 1132 is from Nadendla, wherein he is mentioned as Mahamandalesvara Chodaraja. Choda bore the usual Kondapadumati prasasti in another record dated A.D. 1132 also from Nadandla. Another record of his also of the initial year of his reign is at Nadendla. The last inscription of choda is from Triapadu dated A.D. 1135 and gives the prasasti which is exactly the same as in one of the Nadendla inscriptions noted above, except that Choda is mentioned here as a bee at the devine feet of Kulottunga chodadeva and a sahasottunga where as in the others it is said that his (choda’s) hair is covered by the dust of the devine feet of Kulottunga chodadeva.

Choda’s Political Relations

Nothing of significance had occurred in choda’s reign. The chola emperor was Kulottunga II to whom choda’s Ioyaslty is seen from his inscriptions dated A.D. 1132 and 1135 giving his prasastis. The Velanandu contemporary of choda was Gonka II, the most celebrated of the Velanandu kings with whom choda must have maintained amicable relations. The Konamandala was under Mummadi Bhima II and Satya I with whom choda does not seem to have come into Conflict.
