The Vijayanagara Empire was the last great Hindu empire of South India. It covered much of modern-day Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu at its peak. The Empire had three dynasties, the last of which was the Aravidu which fell from power in the 17th Century as power reverted to local rulers increasingly under attack from both outside powers.

Remarkably, the Aravidu royal family survives to the present day, over three and a half centuries after they were deposed, and still lives in Anegundi, near the ruins of the old royal capital.
