"The Cholas were a Tamil dynasty centered in southern India and were
rare in "
"their level of influence in northern India. They began as a tributary
"to the Pallavas, but in the 9th century their power began to grow.
"the 11th century, they led expeditions against other Indian states as
"north as Bengal, as well as against the Maldives, Sri Lanka and even
"Indonesian kingdom of Sri Vijaya. They collapsed, however, in the 1250s
"other southern Indian states rose up."
What does "were rare in their level of influence" really mean? From
Wikipedia, I get the impression they mostly ruled southern India, so
does it mean they had little influence, or, as it literally means (I
think), were somehow unusually influential in northern India?
