History of ladakh

The rock carvings and inscriptions found on various parts of Ladakh, state that the history of this place dates back to the Neolithic period. The historical and literary contributions of Herodotus, Megasthenes, Ptolemy and even the Puranas mention about the Mons and Dards, the mixed Indo-Aryan inhabitants of the place. However, the factual history states that around the 1st century.\n\nLadakh was a part of the Kushan empire. Buddhism crept in the place around the 2nd century. During 8th century, Ladakh was involved in a clash between the Tibetans and Chinese. The suzerainty over Ladakh, frequently changed between Tibet and China. In 842, a Royal Representative of Tibet annexed Ladakh and founded a separate Ladakhi Dynasty. He brought in the influence of Tibetan culture, traditions and spread Buddhism in Ladakh. By 9th century, Buddhist kings of Ladakh had established a kingdom extending from Kashmir to Tibet. During the 16th century, Ladakh was also invaded by the Muslims of the west, and finally it was annexed into the Dogra Rajas Kingdom of Jammu. Since then Ladakh has been a proud part of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.
