We will tell you about 5 great Hindu Rulers of India, whose rule has affected the people of India. In the book of our school also, there is no such description given for these great Rulers. Only the Mughals and the British have been told in those books.
Let’s find out below the history of these five Rulers:-
He was born at the time of “God Buddha” and “Mahavir”. He was the king of Magadha Empire. Though he kidnapped his own father Bimbisara and then rule over the empire. But that time he fought against the Vajjis/Lichhavis and rule over the Vaishali (Northern India) after defeating him.
Magadha was the most powerful empire of that time. Ajata Shatru known for his respect for art. The Ajanta Caves and Ellora Caves were also made at the time of Azata Shatru. No foreigner king ever dared to fight against him over India.
Chandragupta Maurya was one of the most powerful kings in India. He started Maurya Vans (generation). Chanakya (Guru of Chandragupta Maurya) gave him all the training from an early age. With the help of Chanakya, he learned all the techniques of a fight and the expand their area at the age of 20 only. No one can believe his area was from “West Iran to All Hindustan” extended to Srilanka.
Many times Chandragupta stopped Sikandar (Alexander) to fight against India, although he was capable enough to defeat him. Chandragupta Maurya took over Iran by defeating Seleucus Nicator commander (Senapati) of Alexandra. After this victory, he married the daughter of Seleucus Nicator. Since Chandragupta’s childhood, Chanakya was aware of the fact that one day Chandragupta would be one of the most powerful Kings of India. Chandra destroyed the Nanda Vans (against whom Chanakya has pledged) and captured the whole of India. After this, he was known as the greatest king of India and Maurya Vans.
Alexander has always refused to fight against Chandragupta Maurya because he knew that he would not be able to stand in front of Chandragupta in the war field. And we make the biggest mistake by saying Alexander as the world champion.
Ashoka was the third greatest ruler of the Indian Mauryan Empire. Ashoka had expanded the highest range of area of any kind in India. His range was extended from Afghanistan to Myanmar and Kashmir to Tamilnadu. Initially, Ashoka was very harsh, so he was called as Rude Ashoka.
But in the battle of Kalinga (Now Orissa) when he saw the destruction of millions of people and the devastated condition of the City, his heart changed and he abandoned the expansionist policy. Ashoka adopted “Buddhism” and more of Buddhism he followed dharma i.e morals, social concerns and religious tolerance. He has promoted “Buddha Religion”. In addition to India, the Buddhist Religion which has become popular in India and other countries, credit goes to Ashoka. Our national flag and the national symbol is also taken from Ashoka Pillar and Ashoka Chakra.
He was the son of Chandragupta and the second greatest ruler of Gupta Dynasty. In his time the people of India were most happy, saying that at his time there was a lot of gold stocks in the houses of the people in India. Firstly he started the movement of money, he started his golden Era together with his son Vikramaditya. That is why he was considered one of the greatest kings who had not lost any war in his life. His coins are still kept in the museums of India.
Prior to the Mughal arrival in India, there was Vijaynagar empire in India. Sri Krishna Deva Raya was the emperor of Vijay Nagar and his empire was in southern India. At that time Krishna Dev army was about 4 lakhs.
He adopted two sons of Mughals and followed them as his own sons. But when the last war took place between Krishna Dev and Mughal, Krishna dev, his commander (Senapati) and all the other important people of his empire were killed by his adopted sons under the battlefield. They killed Krishna Dev by striking him from behind. After his death, his army got shattered and the Vijay Nagar empire has been ended.
