Kakatiya Empire in South India was a glorious kingdom replete with rich treasures and temples. Onslaught of Turkic armies led by the Sultans, Alauddin Khilji and later by Mohammed bin Tughlag resulted in the subjugation of Warangal in 1323 CE. Emperor Prataparudra was captured, Warangal was destroyed and Sanatana Dharma was suffocated. The oppressive reign of Delhi Sultanate became unbearable. A confederation of warriors and kings led by Musunuri Prolaya Nayaka, ruler of Vengi, was formed and the coastal Andhra was liberated after a relentless struggle. Kapaya Nayaka, the cousin brother of Prolaya, continued the war of liberation in Telangana and succeeded in unfurling the Kakatiya flag on the fort of Warangal in 1336 CE. Kapaya Nayaka was martyred in 1367 CE because of the disunity among the Telugu Nayaks and the treachery of the Bahmani Sultan. Although short lived (<50 years), the reign of Musunuri Nayaks was a watershed moment in the history of India, that inspired the establishment of Vijayanagar Empire and later, the Maratha Empire by Chatrapati Shivaji to protect and preserve the integrity of India.
