Telangana History Kayastha Dynasty
Kayastha dynasty originated from Maha rash- tra and settled down in Telangana region. The founder of this dynasty was Gangaya Sahini (1239-1257 A.D.) He was a subordinate ruler of Kakatiya Ganapatideva. His kingdom covered the regions of Palnadu, Kadapa and Panagallu of Nalgonda district. The capital of Kayastha dynasty was vallur of Kadapa dt.
Gangaya Sahini defeated Dampdara, a subordi-nate of Yadava rulers on the orders of Ganapatideva, In exchange for this, Ganapatideva presented him with the post of Mahamandaleswara. Thus, while Panagallu was under Kanduru Cholas, as they also were subordinates of Kakatiyas, they must have become subordinates to Gangaya Sahini also.
Jannigadeva (1257-1269 A.D.)
After Gangaya, his nephew Janniga deva became the subordinate ruler of Ganapatideva and Rudrama devi. Nalgonda was an integral part of his kingdom. After Jannigadeva, his brother THpurantaka (1269-1273 A.D.) and later another brother Ambadeva (1275-1302 A.D.) succeeded him as rulers. Ambadeva declared independence and had become an enemy of Kakatiyas. Northern parts of river Krishna in Nalgonda region and Domala were parts of his kingdom. During the reign of Tripurantaka-II (1302-1304 A.D.), son of Ambadeva, Kayastha kingdom merged in Kakatiya kingdom.
