Overview for Kingdom of Kashmir

Kashmir is an ancient principality. In the Puranas, it is mentioned by the name of Greek, which means a hill. The Mahabharta and the Buddhist literature refer to it as Kasmira, while the Mulasarvastivada Vinnay calls it Kasmira-Mandala. For the Greeks )Ptolemy), it was Kasperiria. Some scholars believe that Herodotus' mention of Kaspatyros and Hekataios' mention of Kaspatyros and Hekataios' Kaspapyros or kaspalyros refer to Kashmir, but others are of the opinion that these are the ancient means of Multan. Shie-mi is the term used for Kashmir in the narrative of To-Yeng and Sun-Yan (6th century A.D.). Hieun Tsang (7th Cent. A.D) calls it Kia-shihmi-lo. Khachal and Kashrat are the names given to it by the Tibetans and the Dards respectively. The ancient Kashmiris themselves called their country as Kashmira which later Shortened to Kashmir.

  • A sophisticated thought unbrushed by emotional swaying

    (More than year ago) By, A Reviewer

    Prof. M.L.Kapur is a breed of his own. The incorruptible uprightness with which he has approached the dicey subject of History is applaudable. Though there are a good number of people who do not agree with the author's version of the alleged desecration of temples by Sultan Sikander but the author has never stooped to lower levels of decency. He, has, instead maintained the ethics that a true historian should always abide by. He has compiled a beautiful Book containing Articles by various Scholars about the life of his excellence, Maharaja Hari Singh. In fact the history of Kashmir is now being seen as a combined thesis of G.M.D Sufi and M.L.Kapur. I remember the words, "The Old Adam was still strong in him" and would continue to admire him.
