Chandragupta Maurya (rule: 321–297 BCE) was the originator of the Maurya Empire in old India. He was instructed and guided by the logician Chanakya, who had incredible impact in the development of his domain. Together, Chandragupta and Chanakya fabricated perhaps the biggest domain on the Indian subcontinent. Chandragupta’s life and achievements are portrayed in antiquated Greek, Hindu, Buddhist and Jain writings, however they change fundamentally. In Ancient Greek and Latin records, Chandragupta is alluded as Sandrokottos or Androcottus.
Chandragupta Maurya was a crucial figure throughout the entire existence of India, establishing the frameworks of the primary government to join the majority of South Asia. Chandragupta, under the tutelage of Chanakya, made another realm dependent on the standards of statecraft, constructed an enormous armed force, and kept extending the limits of his domain until at last revoking it for a plain life in his last years.
Preceding his union of force, Alexander the Great had attacked the North-West Indian subcontinent prior to deserting his mission in 324 BCE because of a revolt brought about by the possibility of confronting another huge realm, probably the Nanda Empire. Chandragupta crushed and vanquished both the Nanda Empire, and the Greek satraps that were designated or shaped from Alexander’s Empire in South Asia.
Chandragupta originally acquired local unmistakable quality in the Greater Punjab area in the Indus. He at that point set out to vanquish the Nanda Empire focused in Pataliputra, Magadha. A while later, Chandragupta extended and got his western line, where he was defied by Seleucus I Nicator in the Seleucid-Mauryan War.
Following two years of war, Chandragupta was considered to have acquired the high ground in the contention and attached satrapies up to the Hindu Kush. Rather than drawing out the conflict, the two players chose a marriage partnership among Chandragupta and the girl of Seleucus I Nicator all things considered.
Chandragupta’s realm reached out all through the greater part of the Indian subcontinent, spreading over from cutting edge Bengal to Afghanistan across North India just as making advances into Central and South India. As indicated by the Jain records dated to 800 years after his demise.
Chandragupta renounced his seat and turned into a Jain priest, voyaged away from his domain to South India and submitted sallekhana or fasting to death. Contemporary Greek proof anyway asserts that Chandragupta didn’t quit any pretense of playing out the customs of forfeiting creatures related with Vedic Brahminism, an old type of Hinduism.
he savored the experience of chasing and in any case driving a daily existence distant from the Jain act of Ahimsa or peacefulness towards living beings. Chandragupta’s rule, and the Maurya Empire, set a time of financial success, changes, framework developments, and resistance.
Numerous religions flourished inside his domains and his relatives’ realm. Buddhism, Jainism and Ajivika acquired noticeable quality close by Vedic and Brahmanistic customs, and minority religions, for example, Zoroastrianism and the Greek pantheon were regarded. A commemoration for Chandragupta Maurya exists on the Chandragiri slope alongside a seventh century hagiographic engraving.
