The historic town of Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh, at the convergence of beautiful Beas and Betwa rivers, is extraordinarily rich in ancient monuments and historic places. The city is known to have been an important trade center in the 6th and 5th century BC and was an important city during the rule of Emperor Asoka. The city has been referred time and again in the memoirs of Kalidasa and Meghadoot. During that time, the town was referred as Besnagar, a short distance to the north of the present town, and was abandoned in the 6th century. This city was the capital of the Sungas and enjoyed a privilege position during that time. The town ruled thereafter by the Malwa Sultan and the Mughals before falling under the supremacy of the Scindia rulers.
