India During 10th Century

From the arts and artifacts available in India that can be dated to 10th century A.D. (years 901 to 1000), we can say that it was a very prosperous period in India. The great temples of Chola period, accounts of travelogues left by foreign travelers such as Alberuni and period literature are some of the sources by which life in 10th century India can be reconstructed.

The Chandelas, Cholas, Kadambas, and Rashrakutas are some of the important kings who lived in India during the 10th century A.D. Some of the great temples of Khajuraho were constructed during this century.

Some of the important poets of 10th century are Pampa, Ranna.
