History of Rajasthan

The ancient history of Rajasthan goes back to 5,000 years ago, when the present day districts of Jhunjhunu and Sikar, along with other areas of Jaipur district bordering south Haryana, formed the part of Vedic state of Brahmavarta. Excavations at Kalibanga in northern Rajasthan revealed the existence of human settlements of Harappan times on the banks of a river, Saraswati.
