Queens of Kashmir, pursuant to the ancient law and convention, were sprinkled with the sacred waters of the coronation side by side with the kings, who shared the throne with their consorts. The queens had separate funds, their own treasurers and councillors and were actively interested in the government of the country. They received the homage of feudatory chiefs when they held open court.
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.
