The Indus Valley Civilization or the Harappan Civilization, which thrived in the north-western region of Indian subcontinent from 2600 B.C. to 2000 B.C., is the breeding ground of the history of India. While the Indus Valley Civilization was an urban civilization belonging to one of the four greatest civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, India and China, the Vedic period prospered as a rural civilization. The Gupta Empire in the 4th century A.D. is acknowledged as the 'Golden Age of India' for its cultural, social and economic excellence. The Islamic phase which began in the 8th century A.D. with the conquest of Baluchistan and Sindh by Muhammad bin Qasim lasted for almost 1000 years before the Mughals were brought down by the imperial aggression of the British.
