Part 50 - Indusekhara (A.D. 1300-1306)

Indusekhara alias Vishnuvardhana succeeded Chalukyadhipati Mahadeva on the throne at Nidadavole. His earliest record is from Palakol dated A.D. 1300 recording gifts for the merit of his parents Vishnuvardhana chakravarti and Bhimadevi. Tolabi is prefixed to the name of the king. The next record is from Palakol dated A.D. 1306 registering gifts by Udayamahadevi, grand-daughter of Indusekhara for the merit of her parents—Vishnuvardhana maharaja Nidudapoli Mahadeva chakravarti and mother.

His Political Relations

It is likely that Indusekhara continued the allegiance to the chalukyas to the Kakatiyas. Probably he made Toleru in Bhimavaram taluq (W. Godavari district) his capital. Indusekhara does not seem to have come into conflict with any of the rulers contemporary with him. His subordinate Potinayaka is described as a destroyer of enemies, though the enemies are not specified.
