Ay Kingdom and Rulers

Posted by Arun Mohan ~ on ~ 0 comments

The Ay Tamil Kingdom was believed to be the ancient rulers of present day Trivandrum. Their rule starts from the Sangam period (BC 300 to AD 300).  They ruled the southern part of kerala including the present day districts, Trivandrum, Kollam, Kottayam and the Nagercoil. Nelcynda, a place located five kilometers away from Thiruvalla is the capital of Ay Kingdom. Their kingdom stretched from Thiruvalla in the north to the Nagercoil in the south. Ay Antiran, Titiyan, Atiyan, Karunandadakkan and Vikramaditya Varaguna are the prominent rulers of Ay Kingdom. They ruled the ancient Trivandrum till the end of first half of 10th century. During that time, Vizhinjam is the most popular place in Trivandrum, since it hosted a university called Kanthalur Salai. So they established Vizhinjam as their administrative Capital. But after the Chera-Chola wars during the period from AD 999 to AD 1110, ancient Trivandrum was occupied by the Chola army. They are then forced to give the place to Venad rulers (Kollam Kingdom) in 1110 AD.
