Genealogy of Mauryas

Dasarath Maurya (232BC-224BC) was the successor of Ashoka the Great and ruled over the Mauryan Empire from 232 B.C. to 224 B.C.

Dasaratha uses Asoka’s title Devanampiya in the inscriptions incised on the walls of the rock-cut caves which he bestowed upon the Ajivikas on the heights of Nagarjuni hills. [1]
