Hinduism - Who Was Chandra Gupta I?

 





Chandra Gupta I (r. 320–35 C.E.) was a Hindu emperor who reigned from 320 to 35 C.E. 



The Gupta dynasty, which had its capital at Pataliputra like the Maurya dynasty, is associated with the present city of Patna in the state of Bihar. 





The capital of the Guptas was subsequently relocated to Allahabad. 

The Guptas ruled all of northern India and modern Pakistan during the reign of Chandra Gupta II (r. 376–415), as well as the Coromandel Coast all the way to modern Madras. 




Between 350 and 550 C.E., the Gupta dynasty reigned in northern India, and their rule is linked to the development of Indian culture and the rebirth of Hinduism. 

Both were made possible thanks to the Gupta rulers, who are regarded as benefactors of fine culture as well as fervent Shiva worshippers (bhakta).
