Emperor Krishna Deva Raya earned the titles Kannada Rajya Rama Ramana (ಕನ್ನಡರಾಜ್ಯರಮಾರಮಣ), Mooru Rayara Ganda (ಮೂರುರಾಯರಗಂಡ (meaning King of three kings) and Andhra Bhoja (ఆంధ్రభోజ). He was one of the greatest statesmen which medieval South India had produced. Much information about his reign comes from the accounts of Portuguese travelers Domingo Paes and Fernao Nuniz.

Krishna Deva Raya was the son of Nagala Devi and Tuluva Narasa Nayaka,an army commander under Saluva Narasimha Deva Raya, who later took control of the empire to prevent its disintegration and became the founder of the Tuluva Dynasty, the third Hindu Dynasty to rule Vijayanagara.

 Remark: As usual the postal history was destroyed by the postal personnel here in Bhubaneswar by putting cross by pen over the FDC.It is a clear intention of thrashing philatelist and discoursing the great hobby.I do not have any word to say as I have tried all the steps to stop this kind of activities by India Post but all in vain.Next month they are doing International exhibition INDIPEX-2011 spending lot of tax payer's money but forgetting the basic training and procedure to their own staff and officers.This is India post.Thanks for reading my anger with patience.
