“Map of Hindoostan ” – 1788 CE

This 1st map printed by the British in 1788 was made after an extensive survey of the entire country. It is important to note that the Map was called – “Map of Hindoostan” and it was only later that maps were printed as British Empire of India. ..and today the media still wants us to debate if this is “Hindu-sthaan” or not !!
