Early Pandyan Kingdom
The Early Pandyas of the Sangam period
Sangam period
were one of the four main kingdoms of the ancient Tamil country, the other three being the Cholas, the Cheras and Athiyamaan Dynasty. As with many other kingdoms around this period (earlier than 200 BCE), most of the information about the Early Pandyas come to us mainly through literary sources and some epigraphic, archaeological and numismatic evidence.[1] The capital of the Early Pandyan kingdom was initially Korkai, Thoothukudi around 600 BCE,[2] and was later moved to Koodal (now Madurai) during the reign of Nedunjeliyan I.[3] The kings of the Pandyan Dynasty are frequently mentioned in Sangam literature of the third century BCE and onwards, in literary works such as the Mathuraikkanci and other early Tamil literary works such as Cilapatikaram, which have been used by historians to identify their names and, to some extent, their genealogy
