The land of  Dharma


Its colourful history can be gleaned from a glimpse of the history of India starting from the imperial Mauryas, followed by Guptas, Vardhamanas and ending with a petty ruler called Anandapala, during whose time Mohamud Gazani began his conquests, with torch in one hand and sword in the other. The material wealth of Sthaneswar, the capital was carried off to Gazani and by acts of vandalism along with it the spiritual wealth - the holy tanks and sacred shrines was converted into dust. As the shadow of the crescent grew thicker and wider, it swallowed bit after bit of the sacrosanct land, for the protection of which Dadhichi, heartily gave his vertebra. All sank into oblivion, except some invincible structures now in ruins, yet ready to narrate their hoary past.

The long succession of Muslin Zealots, though humbled the mighty potentates, they did not dry up the spirit of Dharma; for, Marathas and Sikhs who rose to power later waged endless wars to keep the torch of Dharma ever burning bright, by burning themselves at stake at it. With the advent of Britishers, it passed into their hands in 1850 at the death of the widow of the last king by name Fateh Singh.
