The Gupta dynasty was a ruling dynasty of ancient India that flourished from the 3rd to 6th century CE. The dynasty was founded by Sri Gupta, who was succeeded by his son Ghatotkacha Gupta.
The most famous king of the Gupta dynasty was Chandragupta I, who ruled from 320 to 335 CE. Under the rule of the Gupta dynasty, India underwent a period of great cultural and scientific achievements known as the Golden Age of India. Literature, arts, and sciences flourished during this period, they founded free hospitals for their citizens, and many major advances were made in astronomy, medicine, and mathematics.
The Gupta kings were also instrumental in spreading Hinduism throughout India. The Gupta dynasty declined in the late 6th century CE due to a combination of factors, including invasions by the Huns, internal conflicts, and economic decline. However, its legacy lived on, and its achievements continue to be celebrated as a golden era in Indian history.
