Dravidian Civilizations

Proto-Dravidian might have been spoken in Indu's human progress, proposing a "conditional date of Proto-Dravidian around the early piece of the third millennium", after which it fanned into different Dravidian languages. South Dravidian I (counting pre-Tamil) and South Dravidian II (counting pre-Telugu) split around the 11th century BCE, with the other significant branches separating at around the equivalent time.

The beginnings of the Dravidians are an "exceptionally mind-boggling subject of examination and debate".[10] They are viewed as native to the Indian subcontinent, yet may have further pre-Neolithic roots from Western Asia, explicitly from the Iranian plateau. Their starting points are frequently seen as being associated with the Indus Valley civilization, thus individuals and language spread east and southwards after the destruction of the Indus Valley Civilisation in the early second thousand years BCE, some propose not well before the appearance of Indo-Aryan speakers, with whom they seriously interacted. Hereditarily, the old Indus Valley individuals were made out of an essentially "Iranian" tracker finders (or ranchers) heritage, with differing levels of family line from neighborhood agrarian gatherings. The cutting edge Speakers show comparative hereditary cosmetics, yet in addition, convey a little piece of Western Steppe Herders lineage and may likewise have extra commitments from nearby tracker finders groups.

The third century BCE onwards saw the advancement of numerous extraordinary realms in South India like Pandya, Chola, Chera, Pallava, Satavahana, Chalukya, Kakatiya, and Rashtrakuta. Middle-age South Indian societies and exchanging associations like the "Ayyavole of Karnataka and Manigramam" assumed a significant part in the Southeast Asia trade and the social Indianisation of the locale.

Dravidian visual workmanship is overwhelmed by stylized sanctuary design with significant focuses and the development of pictures on stone and bronze models. The model dating from the Chola time frame has become prominent as an image of Hinduism. The Sri Ranganathaswamy Sanctuary situated in the Indian province of Tamil Nadu is many times considered the biggest working Hindu sanctuary on the planet. The sanctuary is implicit Dravidian style and possesses an area of 156 sections of land (631,000 m2).
