Officially known as the Republic of India, it is a country located in the South Asia. India is the 7th largest country by area, the 2nd most populous country and largest democracy of the world. The Indian Peninsula is bordered by India Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east. India shares its land border with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east.India is a diverse country - an eclectic mix of languages, cultures, landforms, and traditions. The Map of India plots the varied landforms including the northern and coastal mountains, the central plateau region and the many valleys of the country. The most important cities of India, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Chennai, Jaipur, and Lucknow are shown on the map along with the numerous places which attract international tourists. The Vaishno Devi Temple of Jammu, the Golden Temple of Amritsar, Red Fort in Delhi, Taj Mahal in Agra, Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, Khajuraho and Ajanta Caves, the Konark Sun Temple, and the Gateway of India attract the most footfall in the country. The beaches of Goa, the backwaters of Kerala, the national parks of Madhya Pradesh, and the deserts of Rajasthan are preferred tourist hotspots. The map also shows major highways that connect different parts of the country, major airports and ports and the highest peaks in India.People have lived in India for almost 75,000 years, from the early Indus Valley civilization. From around 1500 BC to 500 BC the Vedic civilization existed in Northern India, known for the creation of the Vedas, sacred texts of the Hindu religion. In the later Vedic period, from around 1000 BC to 500 BC, the Mahajanapadas emerged, and sixteen republics were established: Kasi, Kosala, Anga, Magadha, Vajji/Vriji, Malla, Chedi, Vasta/Vamsa, Kuru, Panchala, Matsya, Surasena, Assaka, Avanti, Gandhara, and Kamboja.

In 520 BC, the Persian Achaemenid Empire conquered the Northwest subcontinent, under the leadership of Darius the Great. The empire lasted two centuries, until Alexander the Great took control of the Achaemenid Empire. The Achaemenid Empire was followed by the large and powerful Mauryan Dynasty, lasting from 322 BC to 185 BC.

In 1526, Babur established Mughal Empire, an imperial power that grew to include the regions of modern-day India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. His son, Humayun succeeded him, and the Mughal dynasty lasted until 1857, though it shrank and weakened long before that time. The Mughal Empire was one of the largest and richest empires in Indian history.
