Vikramaditya
Vikramaditya
Description
Chandragupta Vikramaditya (A.D. 380-413), the son of Samudragupta, is one of the most familiar and celebrated names in Indian history. He is remembered for his valour, courage, sense of justice and above all his burning patriotism, due to which he succeeded in expelling the Sakas from Western India.

The incidents narrated in this book are based on "Devi Chandragupta" by Visakhadatta. This work is now lost but a few passages from it, quoted in other books, give us a glimpse of the events narrated in it. There are also references to episodes in the life of Chandragupta in literary works and inscriptions of a later period. Chandragupta Vikramaditya's reign brought peace and prosperity to a wide area extending from the Bay of Bengal to the Arabian Sea, and from the Himalayas to the Vindhyas. It is perhaps this that won for Chandragupta Vikramaditya a permanent place in the hearts of the people of India.

Fa-hien, the Chinese pilgrim who travelled over India for more than ten years (A.D. 400-411) during the reign of Chandragupta Vikramaditya, has left an interesting record of the country and the life of the people inhabiting it.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
