 Why in News

  • The distance between Mudimanikyam in Telangana and Badami in Karnataka is nearly 500 km

  • But a recent discovery shows that the village of Mudimanikyam on the banks of river Krishna was part of the kingdom ruled by Badami Chalukyas.

  • And long after the demise of the kingdom that ruled the present-day Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, the area continued to have a thriving community that prayed to Hindu gods Vishnu and Shiva. 

  • While the Jogulamba temples at Alampur and the submerged Yeleswaram sites were the furthest reach of Chalukya Badami kingdom, this new information expands the historical extent of that realm.


Mudimanikyam is a village in stateof Telangana.
