The Pandya Kings

The Pandyas
(200 B.C. to 300 B.C.?)

The Pandya kingdom, covered the southernmost region of Indian peninsula from coast to coast. The Pandya's constantly faced feuds from the Cholas and the Cheras and the boundaries of their kingdoms kept on varying depending on the outcome of their battles.

A distinguished  Pandyan king is Nedunjezian, who defeated  a combined attack of his enemies at the battle of Talaiyalanganam. He is eulogized by many poets for whom he was a great patron. He was himself an accomplished scholar.
