The Hoysalas

Hoysalas: Vishnuvardhana established a kingdom for Hoysala dy-
nasty with capital at Doarasamudra (Halebid) near Mysore during the
12th century. It was once the most powerful dynasty in the Deccan.
Their short-lived dominion was shattered in 1310 by the attack of
Malik Kafur and Khawja Haji, the generals of Alaudin Khilji, who rav-
aged the kingdom and sacked the capital.
