History of Uttar Pradesh


The history of Uttar Pradesh is closely linked to the wider history of India. It is 4000 years old. Formerly the region of Uttar Pradesh was occupied by Aryans or Dasas and their main occupation was agriculture. After conquering, the Aryans occupied the surrounding areas. The state was the center of the Mahabharata war.

He laid the foundation of its civilization in this region. The epics of Mahabharata, Ramayana, Brahmanas and Puranas were composed in this region during the days of Aryans.

The middle of the first millennium BCE was a time when Uttar Pradesh saw the arrival of Lord Buddha and the spread of Buddhism. Lord Buddha gave his first sermon at the Dhamek Stupa in Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh under Magadha rule.

During the rule of the Magadha Empire, Buddhism and Jainism flourished in the region. It was a period of administrative and economic progress.


Later the power was transferred to the Nanda dynasty and then to the Mauryas. However the city reached the pinnacle of its glory during the reign of Harshavardhana. The advent of Muslim rule had a great impact on the historical background of Uttar Pradesh.

That period witnessed the subjugation of the Rajputs, whose power was limited to parts of Rajasthan. Uttar Pradesh reached the zenith of prosperity during the Mughal rule and especially during the rule of Emperor Akbar.

Over time, Uttar Pradesh witnessed the decline of Mughal rule and the arrival of the British. Mughal influence was confined to the Doab region.
