many others shaped the places like Gwalior,
Udaipur, Jaipur, Pune, Mysore and many more.
These places have priceless monuments and forts
like Shaniwar wada, Raigad fort and world famous
palaces like those of the Scindias. India was
invaded first by the Mughals, in the fourteenth
and fifteenth century. They ruled for almost four
centuries and are a significant part of Indian

and many other monuments reflect Mughal

The Indian peninsula is surrounded by the Arabian
Sea on the West, the Bay of Bengal on the East
and the Indian Ocean from the South. The Sahyadri
hills have given rise to the scenic beauty where
the sea and hills meet. This has made Konkan on
the western coast a very rich and fertile land.
While on the eastern side, a wider area stretches
between Bay of Bengal and Eastern Ghats, called
as the Coromandal Coast.
