Nagavanshi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Nagavanshi (Sanskrit: नागवंशी nāgavaṃśī "of nāga-descent) or Nagavanshi dynasty were rulers in the area of the present Chhattisgarh state from around the 11th century CE to the 14th century.[1] A copper plate inscription from the Gupta Empire era relates that nāgas were elevated to the kshatriya caste.[2] The copper plates of this period relate to the Nagas being defeated by the Guptas and subsequently being married into them. One example is that of King Chandragupta II, who married Queen Kuberanaga. The Nagas were mentioned as an snake-worshipping tribe of ancient India.[3] Puranic legends constructed the genealogy of the Nagavanshis as a sub-clan of the Suryavansha.[citation needed] Nāga-worshippers were supposedly known as Nāgā or Nāgil. Nair, Bunt and some Rajput and Jat people claim to be of Nagvanshi origin.[citation needed]

Nagavanshis in Kerala and Tulu Nadu[edit]

The Nairs of Kerala and Bunts of Tulu Nadu claim descent from the naga Śeṣa; these regions include the Nagavanshi clans who migrated from North India associated with the events referred to as the Sarpasatram. The Nairs were organized into various martial clans like Nambiar and Kiryathil Nair.[4][5][6][7][8]
