There are many inventions and discoveries in ancient India. Many of them were recorded and edited, but most of them were destroyed because of the many aggressions and wars.

But still there are a few accounts of inventions and discoveries that were survived.

Here are some of the ancient Indian inventions and discoveries recorded by early Hindus or Sanatanis.


  • Powder Metallurgy

Inventions And Discoveries In Ancient India - 2

Powder metallurgy (PM) is a term that covers a wide range of methods for manufacturing materials or parts using metal powder. Powder metallurgy has been used by Indians for quite some time. The iron pillars of Delhi that do not rust even today are proof of this. It’s not just one of those kinds. In India, there are many things that are becoming more and more dissipated.

The Russians who removed the pieces from the column were sure it was made using powder metallurgy innovations. Today’s so-called space-age innovations can only utilize powder metallurgy to make small parts; they are often used as the tips of cutting equipment. How did our ancestors use powder metallurgy to create such an important pillar? The pillar is like a time capsule – it’s challenging the world.

Are we able to climb to the top of what our ancestors achieved?

  • Atomic Weapons 

Inventions And Discoveries In Ancient India

You may have discovered the unparalleled Astras/Weapons mentioned in our Purana. Still, you may not know them in detail:

“The Mahabharata—an ancient Indian epic collected 3,000 years ago—includes references to terrifying weapons. Sadly, in our age of nuclear bombs, descriptions of the detonation of such weapons do not seem to No exaggeration: “An exploding shaft has a smokeless brilliance”. That’s how this weapon is seen. The result of its use likewise inspires automatic affiliation.’…which makes the collection of the dead unrecognizable. The survivors lose Their fingernails and hair were lost, and their food became unfit to eat. In the years that followed, the sun, stars and sky remained shrouded in mist and harsh weather.” Such weapons are called Brahma weapons or Indra flames.

  • Atomic Physics

Buddhist instructor Pakudha Katyayana showed nuclear hypothesis. Maharshi Kanaada of third century, B.C. composed nuclear hypothesis in Vaiseshika Sutras. Agni Purana gives littler extents. The smallest of them is called Paramaanu which is about a billionth of a meter. This value is proportional to the volume of natural atom determined by Western researchers.

As the Upanishads show, the five elements of nature are the Earth, water, air, fire, and Akasa. (Old-fashioned Greek and Roman rationalists did not know Akasa). There is no exaggerated speculation that the earth speaks strongly, water speaks to the fluid state, and air speaks to the steam state. Fire is plasma and is the fourth condition of the subject.

Western science does not recognize the state of the atom as a condition of the problem, despite the fact that some atomic particles are stable. Akasa means atomic state. In an old Sanskrit content named Anu Sidhdhantam, Maharshi Goutama portrays three models of miniaturized scale scopes that can see particles and electrons.

  • Speed of light

The Rig Veda Bhashyam by Sayana Madhava gives the accompanying Sloka praising the Sun:

Yojanam sahasre dve, satadve, dvecha yojane Ekena nimeshardhena kramamaana namosthuthe:

A Yojana rises to 15788.8 meters, half Nimesha close to 8/75 seconds. This gives the speed of light 325940 km/s. We need to recall here, the above values ​​are a rough plan for easy memorization, e.g. recall that pi is estimated to be 22/7. Better than the 215,000 km/s figure given by Danish space expert Ole Roemer in 1676.

Having discovered so many things, it is wise to expect that our predecessor probably did not use light as a standard for estimating length. All in all, modern science believes that the speed of light is a universal constant! Shloka’s “Kramamaana” above hides the importance of steady moment changes. This will be managed a little later.

  • Weaving

Many specialists agree that ore and wheel spinners began in India. The earliest cotton fabric tests were found in finds in the Indus Valley. Tests of the oldest and most stringent cotton fabric staining strategy, Kalamkari, were also found there.

The Puranas depict the turning and weaving that orchestrates the evolving idea of ​​the industry. The textile business involved certain factories operating in relationship with local enterprises and paying piece rates.

The yarns used for flocking and Muslim weaving were of the most volatile kind, and had no precedent in some other nations during that period. The Indians were notable in their abilities to roll and weave which groups of people of various terrains had not surpassed even in the memorable past.

Pliny the Elder has sent India a large amount of fleece, wool texture, shaded floor coverings, silk, cotton garments, rough canvas and textures ranging from the finest surface materials to Rome. I am educating. Outdated Indians are notorious for making the thinnest sari that can go through the ring.
