History of latur

Latur was ruled by the Rashtrakuta dynasty, which succeeded the Chalukyas of Badami, between 753 and 973 AD. Dantidurga, the first Rashtrakuta king, hailed from Lattalur, the old Latur. King Amoghavarsha of the Rashtrakutas developed the city of Latur. Following the reign of the Rashtrakutas, the region was ruled by a number of different dynasties. The Satavahanas, the Sakas, the Yadavas of Deogiri, the Delhi Sultans, the Bahamani rulers, Adilshahi and the Mughals, all ruled over Latur at some point in time. \n\nIn the 19th century, Latur became a part of the independent princely state of Hyderabad, as it merged with the surrounding areas and fell under the Osmanabad district. Qasim Rizwi, a chief of the Nizam of Hyderabad’s army, was from Latur. Post-independence, Hyderabad became a part of the Indian Union and Osmanabad became a part of the Bombay Province. When the state of Maharashtra gained recognition in 1960, Latur went on to become one of its districts.
