The country that is now India started making its mark on world history more than 5,000 years ago, when the Indus Valley Civilization (one of the oldest in recorded history) began flourishing. And after more than five millennia of growth, India is now the second most populous country on Earth and is home to nearly 18 percent of the world's people.

The most populous democracy in the world, India consists of 29 diverse states and seven other territories with more than a dozen languages spoken by millions of people each throughout the country.

Such diversity is the result of a long and complex history that has seen India ruled by Arabs, Turks, Persians, and the British Empire, which controlled the country until the mid-20th century. Today, India is a unique tapestry of various ethnic, cultural, and religious influences.

So while the India facts in the gallery above may only scratch the surface, they're sure to leave you with a deeper understanding of this country's fascinating culture and history.
