  • Dear Sir,
    I have read the Kings and Queens that have ruled India with great interest. I would like to read more Indian Sanskrit with pride. Therefore I should be grateful to receive email and articles/publications to broaden my knowledge.
    Kind regards.

    Indar Prasad,
    Suva,
    FIJI ISLANDS.

  • Dear Sir,
    The article is really good and interesting, can you please add the year AD and BC, from to like that

  • If Vikramaditya ruled for 93 years, how old was he when he was actually killed? Also, is this the same Prithviraj Chauhan who defeated Ghori 16 times and let him go?

  • Very educative info. We shold educate all our younger Generation, the so called Dalits and girls on the richness of ‘OUR HISTORY’; also, we MUST DEVISE WAYS AND MEANS to show them that by practising the Hindu life style, we, ie. all the Hindus, too can afford all the modern amenities and comforts

  • 36 years King Yudhisthir ruled ..after that what happen to King Yudhisthir and his 4brothers and the queen Draupati .

    • As per Mahabharata, after all handovers they walk towards Himayalas get moksha on their way…it’s pretty interesting one where Yudhisthir(Dharma Raju) clarifies all doubts of Bhema….

  • Why is it that in history same people are known by different names? Like the Muhammad Ghori /Muhammad of Ghor, of the Ghurid dynasty, was also known as Mu’izzal -Din Muhammad, but was born Shihab -al din. It creates a lot of confusion, isnt it?

  • This account is based on different kings ruling Hastinapur only. Would it be possible for u to compose an article which gives the picture of the whole of India and the areas it included from the time of Mahabharata or may be a decent point around that ?

  • Very Interesting information. We teach our children about the rulers of other countries and Mughal kings but we do not remember our own Delhi rulers.

    Thank you very much for this valuable information. To put this in the right perspective it would have been better to show which year ( BC / AD) along with our Shalivahana Shaka so that we could relate this to current generation

    Thanks once again

  • Chandragupt Maurya and Ashoka were the Rulers of Magadh not Inderprastha..This is lineage of Pandavas and their later Kings were not powerful.Therefore they do not hold prominent place in history

  • in that photo all are south indian temples, but mahabaratha is done in gujarat and north-west region how south indian style of temples appeared there.

  • Very interesting and informative. However, the date line would have to be verified. The end of the Mahabharatha War coupled with the decadence of the Sama Veda Period led to the weakening of the laws of Aryavartha and a social revolution with the Druids who originated in Mesopatamia and the Aryas who originated in Eurasia inter marrying and the Druid expertise in architecture, agriculture and methods of temple worship entering the Vedas via the Agama (that which came from outside) Shastras to form the Atharva Veda. The Atharva Veda period commmenced around 8,000 years ago. My own patrilineal ancestors (Vada Desha Vadama, Kashyapa Gothra) who came from Pushpa Vihara as part of Gandhari’s retinue and performed the Sarpa Yajna for Janamejaya went South with him to do penance for genocide at the place from which my name derives, Suchindrapuri. There Janamejaya was relieved of the same affliction that had possessed Indra owing to Ahalya’s curse. Janamejaya, then became a mendicant and my ancestors, on their way back to the Narmada Valley were given enormous land grants by the Chieftains of Madurai and settled there.

    • I beg to add the following corrections – there were never a people called Aryans – delusional dream of a snake oil salesman by the name of Max Mueller – Google it. Thoroughly debunked more than 30 years ago.

      Mesopotamia, Sumeria, Greece – where did these people come from – read Cambridge University’s Human Gene Migration Project Report – originally published in Science and National Geographic Society Magazine.
      How long did it take for people to get there from East Africa? Hogwash writing by people who learned to cover themselves only in 13th century. Druids are Priestly Celts.

      Recent field studies confirm that Athenian Democracy was another fabrication – Athenian Society is being literally copied by Qatar where 300,000 Qataris have rights who own on the average 8 to 10 slaves – same as ancient Athenian society – the cradle of democracy.

  • The article of Hastinapur rulers is an interestng piece of iformation. There should be some method to relate the time with CE or vikram samvat

  • This article is very informative, however I wanted to understand who was the king of Hastinapur during the reigns of Ashoka and Chandragupta Maurya. The Maurya dynasty was ruling practically the entire India

  • hi,
    i would like to know where would the great king chandra gupta mourya fit in this chronology? why is his dynasty not included??

  • As per my knowledge , yudistira crowned as emperor at Hastinapura.
    And vrishusena younger son of karna crowned as king of Indraprastha under the patronage of arjuna.
    Above mentioned list of hasthinapur legacy. Please correct me if I am wrong

  • Good Information… I wonder how come these kings lost heritage knowledge of weapons, various form of arts, advance in medical, wars, nature , transportation etc ?

  • There were so many kings ruled in the north and south India.
    We have not even a trace of their palaces where they lived.
    How strange is this fact!

  • The genealogy seems interesting. However, it will be equally interesting to know how this could be substantiated with corroborative evidence. One thing is beyond comprehension as to how one king could rule for 80 to 90 years or even more.

  • i am intrested in it but i have doubt
    according to other sources kaliyug started in 3102BC but here end of mahabharatha is stated as 2964BC
    but mahabharat acutally ended in dwaparg yug only so the year must be greater than 3102BC

  • अच्छी जानकारी हैं, ये कार्य चालु रखना|
    धन्यवाद |

  • Recent human gene migration studies say there is no so called Aryans migration from central asia, The theory by german mullear,The years are relevant to the logical reasons
