Kingdom of Kashmir

The Kingdom of Kashmir, situated in the valley of Kashmir in the Indian subcontinent, has a rich and complex history.

Ruled by various dynasties, it reached its zenith during the reign of King Lalitaditya in the 8th century, known for his military conquests and patronage of art and architecture.

Kashmir became a center of learning and culture, attracting scholars and artists from around the world. The region witnessed the spread of Buddhism, followed by the arrival of Islam in the 14th century.

The Kingdom of Kashmir faced periods of political instability, external invasions, and conflicts, eventually coming under the control of the Mughals, Afghans, and later the Sikhs in the 19th century. It eventually became a part of the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir under British colonial rule.
