This is a political map of India showing the important kingdoms that existed around 625 CE. The predominant powers are the Pushyabhutis under Emperor Harshavardhana or Harsha (606-647 CE) in northern India, the (Vatapi) Chalukyas under Emperor Pulakeshin II (609-642 CE) in southern and western India and the Pallavas under successive kings in the extreme south.

This was also the period in which the Gauda kingdom in eastern India was rising under King Shashanka (c. late 6th century CE - 637 CE).
