It provides a snapshot of the kingdoms of the past.

For a collector of coins and other antiques, this provides the context.

It is intriguing  that the asuras, devas, and gandharvas were actually Himalayan tribes…. (assuming that this map is correct).

The map holds more information than I have assimilated since I discovered it. This looks like the beginning of a fun new journey!

***

Another map of the Indian Empire under the British!!

So many new facts held in this one!
