Hinduism is the oldest known spiritual tradition in the world and there is evidence that it flourished long before recorded history in ancient India.

The ancient Vedic civilization practiced Hinduism in the Indus Valley over 6,000 years ago and it was already then an old established tradition.

There is plenty of Evidence that its origin goes back into pre-historic times.

Hinduism was developed 6,000 years ago but can be traced back to 5500-2600 BCE.
