Indian Geography
Beatiful images and it makes sad(always) to think that Manasarovar is not in India.
First of all we can start by calling the bridge by the correct name - <b>Sri Rama setu</b>, as opposed to the western imperialist name "adam's bridge".
Maps of Bharat

this has some good maps showing some of the Hindu dynasties that spread out of Kashmir in the north of the subcontinent
Here the amazing photos of Sri Rama setu:


These 2 show Sri Rama setu. The 1st one shows the bridge from Rameshwaram.

This Pic shows the begging of Sri Rama setu.


In this pic u can clearly see the bridge connecting Rameshwaram and Sri Lanka.


Another pic on Ramayana Bridge.
This post not related to India but about a book which tneds to reenact history that Chinese discovered America.


The map contained in it is also very interesting.


Just compare the size of the chinese ship versus that of the euros!! These euros were truly in the forsaken backwaters until their loot of the native americans catapulted them onto the world stage. To think that the Chinese had a FLEET of such ships!!! The hoax of european history is just beginning to be deconstructed.
Been watching Chanakya serial on DVD lately <!--emo&:felx--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/flex.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='flex.gif' /><!--endemo-->
Can anyone point me to an ancient map during the time of Mauryas. The link posted earlier in the thread is obselete.
Specifically looking for places - Vahik, Takshila, Patiliputra, Nepal, Kashmir, Kuru, Magahad, Gandhar as they were defined at that time.
Viren, Welcome to my favorite serial.

Vahic Pradesh is modern day Afghanistan. Takshasila is Taxila in TSP. Patliputra is modern day Patna. Nepala is modern day Nepal. I dont kow about the other areas. I realized the importance of Kashmira to India after watching the serial.

Radha Kumud Mukherjee wrote a book "Fundamental Unity of India" Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan which had some old maps. I lent my copy out and lets see if I can get them scanned.
Chanakya is definitely my alltime favourite teleserial for historical accuracy and dialogues.

Historical Maps of India.
Thanks Ramana and Suder. A IF member helped me get the entire collection of Krishna, Mahabharat, Ramanaya & Chanakya - god bless his soul <!--emo&:rocker--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rocker.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rocker.gif' /><!--endemo-->
It's a real good serial - might be worth having just a thread on this serial.

This might be the map during the times of Chanakya 350 BC (?)

Where exactly is "Kaikayi" - King Pauratashevar who fought against Alexander ruled this place.

Minor nitpick I had was a soldier (Chief of Stables) calling Gen Bhadrasal '<i>janab</i>' which I believe is a urdu word and might not have been used then.
Another one was some shishays passing around documents to their gurus with left hand.
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Where exactly is "Kaikayi" - King Pauratashevar who fought against Alexander ruled this place.

Kaikayi was from the kingdom of Kekaya.

Kekaya was the land between the rivers Vitasta and Asikini.
Madra was the land between Asikni and Airavati (Parushni).

Gandhara lay to the west of Vitasta extending beyond the Sindhu (Indus) into Afghanistan.

Kapisha, Kamboja and Bahlika were in Afghanistan.
