History of India


India's existence could be traced back to 5000 years old Indus Valley Civilization which was one of the most flourishing civilizations of its time. Aryans were the early settlers in India, while Dravidians were its original inhabitants. Numerous merchants and invaders came to this country from time to time, and most of them settled here permanently.


India has a rich culture of tolerance which is a perfect example of its unity in diversity. Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Jews live here in harmony. It has been ruled by Maurya dynasties, Hindu Gupta dynasties, Mogul dynasties and the British in the past. The country got independence from the British rule in 1947 and was declared a sovereign republic in 1950 with its own constitution.
