The emergence of Rajputs was the outcomes of the death of Harshavardhana and the breakup of Pratihara Empire. They dominated the Indian political scene nearly 500 years from the 7th century. They belong to the patrilineal clans of the Indian subcontinent. They rule over Rajasthan, Saurashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Jammu, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar as warriors, entrepreneurs, and zamindar (land owners).
The Bahmani Kingdom was founded by Alauddin Bahman Shah in the 1347 AD. With its capital at Gulbarga and later Bidar a total of eighteen Sultans ruled over this kingdom. Often at war with the neighboring Hindu Kingdom of Vijayanagara, the Bahamanis disintegrated into independent sultanates called Deccan sultanates after the attack of Krishnadeva Raya and the death of the great Wazir of Bahmani Sultanate Mahmud Gawan.
The patronage of the Vijayanagara dynasty to literature and architecture was great with contribution from the royalty too. Prominence of regional languages in explaining topics like religion, poetry, general life, professions, science, skills and devotion is seen with translations around different time frames.
The Architecture of the era had a cultural amalgamation from several decades and depicted an Islamic touch. Temples, courts and general civic architecture depicts beautiful intricate moldings and engravings with the use of granite and bright colors.
