The culture of Dvaravati was based around moated cities, the earliest of which appears to be U Thong. In what is now Suphan Buri Province. Other key sites include Nakhon Pathom.
Legends engraved on royal urns report the following kings: Suryavikrama (673-688), Harivikrama (688-695), Sihavikrama (695-718). A Khmer inscription dated 937 documents a line of princes of Chanasapura started by a Bhagadatta. And ended by a Sundaravarman and his sons Narapatisimhavarman and Mangalavarman. But at that time, the 10th century, Dvaravati began to come under the influence of the Khmer Empire. Was ultimately invaded by King Suryavarman II.In the first half of the 12th century. Survived its southern progenitors until the late 13th century, when it was incorporated into Lan Na. The people of the region used the Mon language. But whether they were Mon people.
There is evidence that these principalities may comprise many cultural groups of people, including Malays. The theory of Thai migration into Dvaravati has been refuted and is now known to have happened much later. The term Dvaravati derives from coins which were inscribed in Sanskrit. Means "that which has gates". Its name may derive from the city of Dvrak.
Little is known about the administration of Dvaravati. It might simply have been a loose gathering of chiefdoms. Rather than a centralised state, expanding from the coastal area of the upper peninsula to the riverine region of Chao Phraya River. The three largest settlements appear to have been at Nakhon Pathom. Praak Srigacha, with additional centers at U Thong.Pong Tuk, Muang Phra Rot, Lopburi. Dong Lakhorn, U-Taphao, Ban Khu Muang, and Sri Thep. The traditional chronology of Dvaravati is mainly based on the Chinese textual account and stylistic comparison by art historians. However, the results from excavations in Chansen and Tha Muang mound at U-Thong raise questions about the traditional dating. Newly dated typical Dvaravati cultural items from the site of U-Thong indicate that the starting point of the tradition of Dvaravati culture may possibly date as far back to 200 CE. Archaeological, art historical, and epigraphic (inscriptions) evidence all indicate, however, that the main period of Dvaravati spanned the seventh to ninth centuries. Dvaravati culture and influence also spread into Isan.
