Hindu empires rose to power following the birth of Hinduism in the Indian subcontinent. Considered to be the greatest empire of its time in the world, the Maurya Empire under Chandragupta and Ashoka became larger than British India, diplomatically engaging with Greece, Macedonia, Epirus, Cyrene and Egypt. The period of the Gupta Empire under Samudragupta is commonly attributed to as the Golden Age of India. The historical and geographic extent of Indian civilization is referred to as Greater India and encompasses empires that also practiced Dharmic faiths such as Buddhism and Jainism.
