Welcome to Ancient India Website
History may be defined as collection of evidences, research based on facts & figures and presentation of authentic information about past events. History is a strong medium to get connected with ancient roots. Scholars who write about history are called Historians. As we all are aware that India witnessed several invasions. Adequate justice could not be done to honor our heros due to lack of interest by the invaders. Small contributions in the field of History of Ancient India by historians during Colonial rule could not do justice to earlier Proud rulers of South North & West India & their successors. Ancient Indian History, therefore became victim of history of religions by erstwhile historians. “ Truth of those dark times was not Truth, it was just someone’s version to please their religious & political bosses.
