This article is about the Malayu Kingdom dynasty. For Hindu thread, see Kalava.

Mauli is a dynasty of Malay kings that rules Bhumi Malayu or Dharmasraya kingdom, centered in Batanghari river system, today Jambi and West Sumatra provinces, Sumatra, circa 11th century to 14th century.[1] Most Mauli kings are MahayanaVajrayana Buddhists.

The dynasty appear almost two centuries after the fall of Sailendra dynasty that ruled Srivijaya, after the Chola invasion in 1025 led by Rajendra from Tamil nadu, India. It seems that the family was once the member of Srivijayan mandala and step into the power to rule the former Srivijayan mandala which includes Sumatra and Malay Peninsula. The dynasty was based on the Batanghari river system, initially centered in Muaro Jambi, and considered as the successor state of Srivijaya. In later period of the kingdom's capital shifted inland upstream of Batanghari to Dharmasraya and later moved further inland to Pagaruyung in present-day West Sumatra province.
