FC: ea132731 | Emily Anderson M, W, F {9-10 am} | The Maurya Empire

1: Maurya Empire | This empire covered the northern plain of India. It stretched from the Bay of Bengal to the Hindu Kush Mountains. (Practically all of India.) | About 250 B.C. (Around 140 years.)

3: Chandragupta Maury was the first ruler. He had many tax collectors to help him rule. Pataliputra was the capitol. There were 570 guard towers and 64 gates! Chandragupra's grandson Asoka ruled after him from 269 B.C to 232 B.C. Asoka brought this empire to its height. Asoka was Buddhist. He encouraged everyone to be tolerant of other religions - therefore there was peace.
