The Chalukya Empire (Kannada: ಚಾಲುಕ್ಯರು [tʃaːɭukjə]) was an Indian state that spread through large parts of southern and central India between the 6th and the 12th centuries. During this period, the Chalukya dynasty ruled as three related yet individual dynasties: The earliest dynasty, known as the "Badami Chalukyas", ruled from Vatapi (modern Badami) from the middle of the 6th century. After the death of Pulakesi II, the Eastern Chalukya Empire became an independent kingdom in the eastern Deccan ruling from Vengi until about the 11th century. In the western Deccan, the rise of the Rashtrakutas in the middle of the 8th century eclipsed the Chalukyas of Badami before being revived by their descendants, the Western Chalukyas, in the late 10th century. These Western Chalukyas ruled from Kalyani (modern Basavakalyan) until the end of the 12th century.
