The region was part of several ancient panIndian empires, including the Mauryans and Guptas. The Mughal Bengal was heralded by Aurangzeb as the "paradise of the nations",[12] since it was the empire's most economically developed province. Later, occasional Muslim raiders reinforced the process of conversion by building mosques, madrasas, and khanqahs. During the Islamic Bengal Sultanate, founded in 1352, Bengal was major trading nation in the world and was often referred by the Europeans as the richest country to trade with. Ancient Bengal was the site of several major Janapadas (kingdoms), while the earliest cities date back to the Vedic period. Islam was introduced through trade with the Abbasid Caliphate, but following the early conquest of Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khalji and the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate, it spread across the entire Bengal region. Simultaneously, some parts of the region were ruled by several Hindu states, and Baro-Bhuyan landlords, and part of it was briefly overrun by the Suri Empire. It was absorbed into the Mughal Empire in 1576. It was also a bastion of regional kingdoms. The area's early history featured a succession of Indian empires, internal squabbling, and a tussle between Hinduism and Buddhism for dominance. The citadel of Gauda served as the capital of the Gauda Kingdom, the Buddhist Pala Empire (8th11th century) and Hindu Sena Empire (11th12th century).
