The Vedas (there are 4 books) began being developed around 6000-3000BC as an oral tradition thus there are limited written records from ancient times. However, from this time period there are a few stone inscriptions scattered throughout India, Burma, Tibet Pakistan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Malaysia

In regards to complete manuscripts the oldest known copies of the Aryuveda and Rigveda (2 of the 4 books) are kept at the Bhandarkar Oriental Institute in Pune, Maharashtra. These two manuscripts are written in Sanskrit and were found in Rajasthan during the late 1800's. They are dated from around 12-1300 AD and thus preceding any major Persian influences.

These manuscripts are included in the UNESCO list of world heritage sites and are commonly excepted to be priceless treasures for all of humanity.

At this time I am unsure where the oldest copies of the Yajurveda or Samaveda are located.

What is the holy book for hinduhism?

Modern day Hinduism has hundreds of books, but the original Hindu faith is called Sanatana Dharma. It is not a religion, it is a way of life. The books of Sanatana Dharma are known as the Vedas. The Vedas are complex. The summary of the Vedas is called Vedanta, Vedanta is referred to as the Upanishads. The Upanishads are lengthy and many. The main Upanishads are eleven, but even they are difficult to understand. All the spiritual books of the original Hindu faith can be summarized into what is known as the four statements or the four Mahavakyas. The four principal statements are: Tat Twam Asi, Ayam Atma Brahma, Prajnanam Brahma, Aham Brahmasmi . The essence of these four statements is - we are not the body, we are not the mind, we are the Divine Soul. The core of the original Hindu faith can be summarized in these four statements.

There is no single Hindu sacred text, not in a similar fashion to how the abrahamic religions (Islam, Christianity, Judaism) have theirs. In Hindu religion the oldest and most sacred text is the Vedas. The Vedas are separated into four different sections, the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda. The oldest of the vedas, the Rig Veda dates back to around 1500 BCE and is one of the oldest religious texts in use. The Vedas have also had a profound influence on Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism.
