Himachal Pradesh state was called “Dev land”. The history of Himachal Pradesh is as ancient as the history of human existence. The history of Himachal Pradesh takes you to the time when the Indus Valley civilization developed. Proof of this fact is found in the excavations found in various parts of Himachal Pradesh. In ancient times, the inhabitants of this region were known as Das, Dasyu, and Nishad. In the nineteenth century, Ranjit Singh got many parts of this area in his kingdom.
