The Origin of The Hoysalas

Naturally obscure on account of its antiquity, the origin of the Hoysala Dynasty presents a very ambiguous problem.

On account of the two diametrically opposite theories which suggest themselves from tradition and from inscriptions.

The former says that the Hoysalas are Yadavas by descent, while from the latter one arrives at the conclusion that they were pure of an indigenous origin.

Apart from Puranic interest the word ‘Yadavas’ has a true historic significance, and it would be interesting to trace their invasion to the south and their influence over the Dravidian races.

The Yadavas belonged to the Lunar race as distinguished from the Solar race.

To speak of them is to speak of the early Aryans, for they were none other than Aryans themselves who first invaded India in prehistoric times.

This suggestion has lent itself from the study of ethnology and philology, side by side with the Puranas and the Vedas.

Mr C.V. Vaidya quoting Dr. Hornle says there were two Ary races who invaded India at different times and settled in this country.

The first, long-headed Aryans, settled in the Punjab and Rajputana; while the second, who was broad-headed, mixed with the Dravidians.

And their descendants are now found from Ambala in the north to Kathiawar in the south-west, Juppulpore in the south-east and Nepal in the north-east’.

Mr Vaidya has identified these two migrations with the two Aryan races of the Sun and the Moon.

Though the mention of the Solar and Lunar races as such was first made in the epics, yet there is ample evidence of Aryan Invasion in the Vedas, which apparently is contemporary writing.

By the time the epics were written the Aryan invasion must have been a thing of the past and naturally tradition was enveloped in myth giving supernatural descents to the then reigning kings.
