They ruled from  their capital at Polavasa (modern day  Jagtial)  of  Karimnagar district  to Narsampet of Warangal district from their capital at Polavasa. Polavasa kings would have maintained the confederation, as three brothers Medararaju,Edaraju and Gundaraja  (1116- 1138)  was ruling from different places and bearing the same title. This may be because of their Rastrakuta descent.   The Polavasa chiefs were subordinates of the Western Chalukyas, but revolted against their overlords during the early 12th century. However, they were eventually subdued by  Chalukya  King Jagadekamalla II, with the support of  Beta II (1076 - 1108)  for which he was awarded Sabbi-1000 region ( modern-day Karimnagar district).
