Pallavas

Pallavas were the feudatories of the Satavahanas before they became independent.

After the downfall of Satavahana Empire Pallavas established independent kingdom.

Simhavishnu was the founder of Pallava dynasty. He defeated Kalabhras, Pandyas and Cholas.

He had the title of "Avanisimha" due to his victories.
