About the book

This book is an attempt to undertand the contributions of the Traikutakas, a dynasty that ruled over North Konkan in the 5th 6th century CE, by considering various types of data and art history related to them. This book primarily focuses on the artistic developments in the region during the reign of the Traikutakas and also details the motivational factors behind specific developments in art and architecture. The first two chapters deal with the political career of the Traikutaka kings and the issues and problems related to their chronology. The third chapter deals with the 5 important copper plates of the ‘Traikutaka Age’ as well as the coinage issued by Traikutaka kings. In the fourth chapter, the cultural background is described using epigraphical, numismatics, and art hhistorical data. An attempt has been made to understand art historical data by employing archaeological methods. The ‘Age of Traikutakas’ continues to be a relatively unknown and mysterious period in Indian, and especially Konkan, history and it is hoped that the exposition in this book will excite future researches into solving its many exciting puzzles.
