Hindush

Background

Hindush (also known as 'Taxila' or 'Sindh') was the eastern most satrapy of the Achaemenid Empire,[1] located in the northwest of the South Asia (modern Pakistan).The capital of this province was at the city named Taxila. Occupation lasted for a considerable time, although when it ended exactly is not entirely clear. The archaeological excavations carried out at Bhir Mound, near Taxila, by John Marshall from 1913 to 1934 revealed heavy masonry of the Achaemenid buildings that formed the earliest stratum of the site. Various other relevant artefacts were found as well.[2]See also[edit]Achaemenid invasion of the Indus ValleyIndia (Herodotus)References[edit]Jump up ^ M. A. Dandamaev.
