Uttar Pradesh: Over 2000 years ago the area which is now Uttar Pradesh was part of Ashoka's great Buddhist Empire. It was also part of the Mughal Empire. Thereafter the Nawabs of Avadh rose into prominence. Later, the British deposed the last Nawab. They named it as the United Province. After Independence, it was renamed as Uttar Pradesh.
