HISTORY
At its peak, the Seuna or Yadava dynasty (850 – 1334) ruled a kingdom stretching from the Tungabhadra to the Narmada Rivers, including present-day Maharashtra, north Karnataka and parts of Madhya Pradesh. The capital was at Devagiri, now known as Daulatabad in Maharashtra. The reign of the Yadava dynasty declined after the conquest of the Daulatabad Fort by Alauddin Khalji in 1294. Further conquest by Malik Kafur, Alauddin’s general, in 1312 resulted in the killing of the members of the Yadava clan ending this illustrious dynasty.
