The fifth largest and most Poplated state of Uttar pradesh can be divided into two district regions – The Soithern hills and plateau with an attitude not exceeding 300 meters and the vast Ganga plain, one of the largest alluvial plain in the world.

 Uttar prdesh has a very ancient and colourful history. The region finds mention in the great epic, the Ramayana and the Mahabharat. In the 6th century B.C. the state was associated with two new religions, Jainism and Buddhism. Lord Mahavira breathed his first sermon. It is the land of great Sages like Bhardwaja, Vajinavalkya, Vasishta, Vishwamitra and Valmki and the land of great Scholars like Sri Sankaracharya.

 It is the land of cultural and architectural wonders. No part of the country has more to offer the visitor, be he intersted in relaxation, culture or the awesme beauty of the Taj Mahal. The medieval past gave us many intectuals like Tulsidasa, Birbal Ramchandra and his disciple kabir. It was the period of a new synthesis of Hindu and Islamic cultures which is still to be seen in this state of secular character among diverse culture.
