The Chalukya Dynasty

 The Chalukya Dynasty was a royal Indian dynasty that ruled in the Deccan region of southern India between the 6th and the 12th centuries. They are known for their architectural achievements, particularly their ornate temples. The most notable ruler of the dynasty was Pulakeshin II, who expanded the kingdom and defeated the Pallavas. The dynasty ultimately declined in the 12th century due to internal conflicts and invasions by the Cholas and the Yadavas.
