the socio-religious status of chola dynasty along with the administration.

Q1. Write about the socio-religious status of chola dynasty along with the administration.

Ans: The inscriptions of Cholas are the main source of information regarding their administration. They had a highly organized and efficient administration characterized by hereditary monarchy and local self governance.

Administration:

· King was at the centre of the entire administration.

· Administration was assisted by several ministers and other high officers.

· Raj-guru or the royal priest advises the king in almost all matters

· Provincial administration was divided into various parts.(Maldalams,Valandus, nadu & village)

· Local self Govt. was one of the most important features of the chola administration. (Each village was administered by the villagers themselves.)

Society:

· The society during Cholas was divided into different castes

· Brahmans were the most privileged and prosperous caste.

· The merchants and the traders also enjoyed a powerful status in the society.

· The practice of untouchability was prevalent in the society. Slavery was also widely practiced.

· The chola inscriptions inform that there was high level of literacy and education in the society.

Religion:

· Most of the chola rulers were shaivite. However they were tolerant towards other sects and religions.

Therefore the socio-religious status of the period of chola dynasty was decent excluding the practice of untouchability. But the administration was well and strong.
