This is a political map of India showing the important kingdoms that existed around 590 CE after the disintegration of the Gupta Empire (3rd century CE to 6th century CE).

The main players appear to be the Chalukyas in the south and the west, the Pallavas in the extreme south and the Later Guptas in the east. This is also the period in which dynasties like the Pushyabhutis and Maukharis are becoming prominent in the north.
