Old & Rare Photos Of India That Can Make You Love History 

Grab the riches here. India has a vast and eventful history. From the flourish of the Indus Valley Civilisation to the Iron Age to the rule of Ashoka to the rise of the Gupta Empire to the Mughal rule to the invasion by the East India Company and rise of the British Raj to the Independence of the country, India has been home to an evolutionary history. The land of riches was something that everyone wanted to acquire. But, we are so proud that India has thrived and still stands with head held high. 

India has always been a flourished land; it dwells in ‘Unity in Diversity’. India has flourished in trade, has been an inventor of the coin system and the barter system, been the pioneer of Economics, has been rich in minerals, food production and what not. Concisely, India has it all!

Here we present to you a series of photos of Indians before the British Raj. At that time, India was proudly called “The Golden Bird”. We wish that India acquires that status again and progresses by leaps and bounds in all spheres of development.
