PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: The
Katyuri dynasty was of Kuninda origin and was founded by Vashudev
Katyuri. Originally, from Joshimath,
during their reign they dominated lands of varying extent from the
‘Katyur’ (modern day Baijnath) valley in Kumaon, between the 7th and
11th
centuries AD, and established their capital at Baijnath in Bageshwar
district; which was then known as Kartikeyapura and lies in the centre
of ‘Katyur’ valley. At its peak, the Katyuri kingdom extended from
Nepal in the east to Kabul, Afghanistan in the west, before fragmenting
into numerous principalities by the 12th century. They were displaced
