Hinduism - Where Is The Ancient City Of Hastinapur In India?

 

About sixty miles northeast of Delhi, there is an archeological site.

Pottery and other items from this site are thought to date from the ninth to sixth centuries B.C.E., making them contemporaneous with the latter portions of the Vedas, the oldest Hindu holy books.

Hastinapur is the capital of the Kauravas, a group of one hundred brothers who are the adversaries of the Mahabharata, the later of the two major Hindu epics.

Despite the fact that the site's name and the location mentioned in the epic are identical, nothing has been discovered to link the two.
