Write a short note on monarchical mahajanapadas.



Answer to be written in the exam:

Monarchial mahajanapadas were the early kingdoms that emerged in northern India ruled by a powerful king who had a large army and many subjects. These kings were able to collect taxes from farmers, craftsmen, and traders, which provided them with a significant source of revenue. 

They built forts, palaces, temples, and other structures to display their wealth and power.  There were sixteen mahajanpadas in the gangla valley in the 6th century BCE. Magadha was one of the most powerful monarchial mahajanapadas.
