During Vikramaditya's reign there were constant wars between
states. He, too, was not without enemies. Some kings were jealous of him. But the people
enjoyed peace and prosperity during the greater part of his reign. Kulottunga tried his
best to undermine his prosperity. And Vikramaditya, too, tried hard to weaken him. After
some time they gave up such attempts. So they lived for forty years without meddling with
each other's affairs, But in the last days of Vikramaditya's rule, peace was disturbed and
he had to use force. A small kingdom called Vengi belonged to the Chola king- Kulottunga.
After the death of Kulottunga, Vikramaditya sent his army and captured Vengi.
