India history and geogprahy
The Rajput dynasty refers to a Hindu race claiming to be descendants of the ancient kṣatriya-varṇa (warrior caste), spread mostly through the north and western parts of India. Originally, the Rajputs consisted of two principal branches: the Sūryavaṃśa (solar race) and the Candravaṃśa (lunar race), to which later was added the Agnivaṃśa (fire-born race). According to Padmanabha’s 15th-century Kanhadadeprabandha, the Rajputs were eventually divided into thirty-six clans, with each having their own sub-clans.Source: Wisdom Library: India History
The Rajputs were creative builders and erected some of the most illustrious and impressive forts and palaces. Some of the forts are at Kangra, Rai Pithora, Chittorgarh, Gwalior, Kumbhalgarh, Jaisalmer, Meharangarh, Junagarh, Amber, Jaigarh and Shrirangapatnam . These forts and palaces have complex compositions.Source: Knowledge Traditions & Practices of India: Architecture (2): Medieval & Colonial Architecture
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.
