Motupalli was a vital seaport in the Kakatiya Kingdom.The Kakatiya tradition was a South Indian administration and the capital of Kakatiya line was Orugallu and now it is known as Warangal.
The Kakatiya state was a South Indian state that administered the majority of eastern Deccan locale containing present day Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, and parts of eastern Karnataka and southern Odisha somewhere in the range of twelfth and fourteenth hundreds of years. Their capital was Orugallu, presently known as Warangal. Early Kakatiya rulers filled in as feudatories to Rashtrakutas and Western Chalukyas for over two centuries. Ganapati Deva (r. 1199–1262) altogether extended Kakatiya lands during the 1230s and brought under Kakatiya control the Telugu-talking marsh delta zones around the Godavari and Krishna waterways. Ganapati Deva was prevailing by Rudrama Devi (r. 1262–1289) and is one of only a handful few sovereigns in Indian history. Marco Polo, who visited India some time around 1289–1293, made note of Rudrama Devi's standard and nature in complimenting terms. She effectively repulsed the assaults of Yadavas (Seuna) of Devagiri into the Kakatiyan domain.
In 1303, Alauddin Khilji, the sovereign of the Delhi Sultanate attacked the Kakatiya domain which wound up as a debacle for the Turks.But after the effective attack of Warangal in 1310, Prataparudra II had to honor Delhi. Another assault by Ulugh Khan in 1323 saw firm opposition by the Kakatiyan armed force, however they were at long last crushed. The destruction of Kakatiya administration brought about disarray and rebellion under outsider rulers for at some point, before Musunuri Nayaks joined the different Telugu families and recuperated Warangal from the Delhi Sultanate.
