Telangana History Elakurty Recharla Kingdom
Elakurty Recharla Kingdom
After Katachamoopathi earned the Elakurty kingdom from Kakatiya rulers, he made arrange¬ments for his descendants to rule it. His wife was Bejjamamba and they had 2 sons- Muchchasenani and Rudra, chamoopathi. After Katachamoopathi, his elder son Muchchasenani had become the ruler of Elakurty. He was mentioned in the inscription, issued by his younger brother Rudrasenani/ chamoopathi. Muchcha served under Kakatiya Rudradeva. His younger brother Rudra succeeded him.
Recharla Rudra Senani
He was the greatest ruler of Recharla dynasty. Kakatiya Rudradeva and Mahadeva were killed by Yadava ruler Jaitugi during his period, and Ganapatideva was imprisoned by Yadavas. With that chaos reigned in the Kakatiya kingdom. At that time, Nagathi of Mudigonda chalukya dynasty occu¬pied Koraviseema, which was lost by his predecessors; chola king Kulottunga-III invaded Orugallu region; all of which led to chaotic conditions in Kakatiya kingdom. In that background, Recharla Rudrasenani shouldered the responsibility of saving the Kakatiya kingdom. First, he went to war on Nagati, defeated and chased him away from Koravispema. Then, he fought against the chola king^sent him packing; reclaimed the Kakatiya kingdom and handed it to Ganapatideva Ganapatideva lauded him as the saviour of their kingdom and gave him the title of ‘Kakati Rajya Sthapanacharya’. Later, Rudrasenani participated in th Kalinga invasion of Ganapatideva. Rudra issued an inscription at palampet and built the famous ‘Ramappa temple’.
After Rudra, his sons ruled the kingdom. First his eldest son, Loka became the king. He built the Rudreswara, Anaischara, Lokeswara and Ganeswara temples in Elakurty and issued inscriptions.
After Loka, Rudra’s second son, Pedda Ganapati came to rule. As the name of Loka chamoopathi s son was also Ganapati, his brother and Rudra’s second son was called as Pedda Ganapati. Pedda Ganapati served under Kakatiya Ganapati and participated in Kalinga and Vengi invasions.
After the death of Pedda Ganapati, Rudra’s third son, Katasenani-IV, had become the ruler of Elakurty kingdom. He was presented with Mandadi region also by Kakatiya Ganapati. He issued the Machchapur and Dichkunta inscriptions. The Dharmaraopet inscription of Soma mantri and Vennakunta inscription of Machchareddy also give his details.
Lokachamoopathi’s son Ganapati became the ruler after katasenani-IV. He participated in many battles along with his father and grandfather and was known as a warrior. Elakurty inscription mentioned him.
After Ganapati, his uncle and son of Katasenani-IV, Pasayita Senani had became the ruler. He also served under Kakatiya Ganapati as chief of army.
Veera Pasayita senani
After Pasayita, his son veerapasayita senani ascended the throne of Elakurty. Soma mantri was the name of his minister. He issued the ‘Dharmarao pet inscription’. The names of three dynasties were mentioned in it. It explained the Kakatiya family tree from Prolaraja-II to Ganapatideva; Recharla family tree from Recharla Rudra to Veerapasayita and the family tree of Soma mantri. It seems that Veera Pasayita was the last ruler of Elakurty kingdom. Their later history was not known.
