Our concept of history is constantly changing - the Vedic texts give us a consistent frame of reference and open our being to a history that is still very much unknown. That of ancient civilizations who lived without destructive technologies as we do today. They nurtured mother nature and cared for the earth. They enjoyed health and longevity. In today's history books just fragments remain of the Vedic culture that once spanned accross the world. In our history books section you can discover Vedic history, the ancient history of India and go on a journey to your Self.

Gandhi wanted to leave no sect after him and hence the question of...

These discoveries establish the Alampur temples to be the proto-types originated and developed by the Chalukyas in their hegemony at Aihole, Pattadakal and Badami in Karnataka, independently of any proximate Gupta influence. Also, importantly, by the transmission of influences through the political incursions of the Chalukyan kings into the Kalinga territory (historic orissa), its famed temples at Mukhalingam were mediately derived.

Francis Buchanan Hamilton’s An Account of the Kingdom of Nepal is a seminal description of the history of Nepal, much sought after and unobtainable for a very long time.
