"Chandragupta: The Great Mauryan Emperor and his Timeless Legacy" Step into the captivating world of Chandragupta, the legendary ruler of ancient India. This photo showcases Vishnu as Varaha Avatar, a depiction that symbolizes strength and protection. Just like this divine form, Chandragupta's reign was marked by detail and grandeur. The golden coins from the Maurya Dynasty depict lions, representing power and courage. Among these coins are ones featuring King Chandragupta himself alongside Queen Durdhara, showcasing their regal stature. Their rule was characterized by prosperity and opulence. Vishnu as Varaha Avatar appears once again in this photo, reminding us of the deity's significance during Chandragupta's era. This representation highlights his devotion to religion and spirituality. On paper, an artist has skillfully portrayed both Chanakya - the brilliant strategist who guided Chandragupta to greatness - and the king himself. Together, they formed an unstoppable duo that shaped history with their wisdom and ambition. In another artwork lithograph from 303 BC, we witness a tender moment as Chandragupta entertains his bride from Babylon. This scene speaks volumes about his ability to bridge cultures through love and diplomacy. Delhi holds two remarkable structures associated with Chandragupta's legacy: the ancient iron pillar constructed under King Chandra's patronage stands tall even today; while the Asoka Pillar represents continuity across centuries in its c20th-century rendition by CM Dixon. Chandragupta remains an enigmatic figure whose influence reverberates through time. His attention to detail in governance, reverence for deities like Vishnu as Varaha Avatar, strategic alliances forged with Chanakya at his side – all contribute to his enduring legacy as one of India's greatest rulers.
