According to the mythological beliefs of Hinduism, Hinduism has been divided into 4 varnas. Several types of castes have been mentioned in every varna. According to this belief, Vaishya / Baniya society has also been mentioned in Hinduism. Vaishya society used to be much more powerful in ancient times. Kings of the Gupta dynasty ruled India for many centuries. Shreegupta had established the Gupta dynasty. Many glorious kings of Maharaja Chandragupta, Skandagupta, etc., belonged to this dynasty, who ruled India for several hundred years and contributed greatly to the establishment of Hinduism in India. ———————————————————— Today, the foundation of all the major Hindu temples in India was laid during the Gupta dynasty itself.
