HISTORY AND HERITAGE

    India's history and culture is ancient and dynamic, spanning back to the beginning of human civilization. Beginning with a mysterious culture along the Indus River and in farming communities in the southern lands of India. Placed in the center of Asia, history in India is a crossroads of cultures from China to Europe, and the most significant Asian connection with the cultures of Africa.

          History of India can be traced back to 9,500 years ago:
The Indus valley Civilization, Aryans, Mahavira in 6th century, Mughals, Marathas, Arabs and in the end East India Company and Britishers. The country is known for its rich and unique cultural heritage. As a result of its exclusive history, India is a home to many religions and languages. Religious practices of various faiths are an integral part of everyday life in this country.

    India's history is more than just a set of unique developments in a definable process; it is, in many ways, a microcosm of human history itself, a diversity of cultures all impinging on a great people and being reformed into new, syncretism forms. The India's history starting from ancient history of India to modern Indian history. the India timeline starting from 3000 BC of ancient Indus valley civilization and Harappa civilization to 1000 AD of Chola Dynasty of ancient history of India.

    Islam first came to India in the eighth century, and by the 11th century had firmly established itself in India as a political force; the North Indian dynasties of the Lodhis, Tughlaqs, and numerous others, whose remains are visible in Delhi and scattered elsewhere around North India, were finally succeeded by the Mughal empire, under which India once again achieved a large measure of political unity.

    The European presence in India dates to the seventeenth century, and it is in the latter part of this century that the Mughal empire began to disintegrate, paving the way for regional states. In the contest for supremacy, the English emerged 'victors', their rule marked by the conquests at the battlefields of Plassey and Buxar.

    The Rebellion of 1857-58, which sought to restore Indian supremacy, was crushed; and with the subsequent crowning of Victoria as Empress of India, the incorporation of India into the empire was complete. Successive campaigns had the effect of driving the
British out of India in 1947.

    Rajasthan has long been regarded as the real home of traditional Maharajas. Besides a land packed with Forts and Palaces of Maharajas, it is also home to a large population of Tribals of whom the Bhils and Minas form the largest groups. The cities of Rajasthan are among the best known historical places in India. Stay in a Palace hotel, enjoy a ride on Camel's back, dine and dance on rippling sand dunes.
