Lucknow is an archaeologically important site situated in Lucknow district (Uttar Pradesh), known for inscriptions regarding the ancient history of India. For example, at Lucknow there is a stone in the provincial Museum which seems to record the pious activities of Rāṇaka Abhayadeva and Sulhaṇa Bhaṇḍārī, son of Rāuta Sāḍhe.
This inscription belongs to the Vīrabrahma (Vīravarman) dynasty and is dated V. S. 1318 (1261 A. D., June 15).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
