Kota Vamsa

Kota Vamsa in Telugu means Fort Dynasty and is used to refer to the medieval dynasty which ruled over a small region of Andhra Pradesh (Guntur district) with Dharanikota as their capital from around 8th century AD to the mid 12th century AD. Kota Kings were of Dhananjaya (gotra) and are considered to be the ancestors of the Rajus of Dhananjaya (gotra). The Kotas of Dhananjaya (gotra) appear as the second among the four important branches of Kshatriyas in Telugu land, even to this date. Kota Vamsa kings are no way related to Kota kings of Rajasthan.
