Watch this video to know more about The Maurya Dynasty, one of the world's largest empires, and the largest ever in the Indian sub-continent.

Right after Alexander's departure from India, one of India’s greatest rulers, Chandra Gupta Maurya, founder of the Maurya Dynasty, invaded central and western India. With Pataliputra (near Patna) as its capital, he had occupied north western India in its entirety by the year 316 BC.

The great strategist and minister Chanakya (also known as Kautilya) was one of Chandragupta Maurya’s closest advisors. At Chanakya’s behest, Chandragupta took over Magadha from the Nanda dynasty.

With the aid of an intelligence network filled with young recruits from Magadha and other provinces, Chandragupta kept a close eye on the happenings within his kingdom and elsewhere. These recruits were the ones who were upset with the corrupt rule of King Dhana of Magadha. Chandragupta gathered enough of such recruits and resources needed for his army to fight long battles. The men included the former General of Taxila and accomplished students of Chanakya.
