  Early History The Kalachuris, also known as the Haihayas, have been
  referred to in the Epics and the Puranas. When they became associated with
  Chedi country, they were also known as the Chedis. Their earliest seat of
  power was possibly at Mahishmati on the Narmada.
      In the second half of the sixth century AD the Kalachuris emerged as a
  political power and their kingdom comprised Gujarat, northern Maharashtra
  and even parts of Malwa. Three Kalachuri kings—Krishnaraja, his son
  Sankaragana and the latter’s son Buddharaja—were known to have ruled
  between 550–620. They had to contend with the two powerful neighbours—
  the Maitrakas of Valabhi and the Chalukyas of Badami. But the Kalachuris
  continued to exist as families of some importance in eastern Malwa and the
  neighbouring regions and established matrimonial relations with the Eastern
  and Western Chalukya princes.
  Kalachuris of Tripuri In the 8th century, several branches of the
  Kalachuris were settled in different parts of northern India. One of them
  founded a principality in Sarayupara in the modern Gorakhpur district and the
  other, the most powerful, ruled in the Chedi country in Bundelkhand. The
  Kalachuris of Chedi, also known as kings of ‘Dahala-mandala’ had their
  capital at Tripuri, near Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh.
