Summary: This is a Historical study of Kaushambi from a literary and archaeological perspective. Kaushambi is an ancient Indian city situated to the south-east of Allahabad now represented by the extensive ruins near the village Kosam. In the 6th century B.C. (during the time of the Buddha), Kausambi functioned as the capital of the Vatsa Janapada, one of the sixteen Mahajanapadas of northern India, which was ruled by king Uadayana. This study emphasizes how Kaushambi represented for a long time a political, religious and economic hub of ancient India.
