Mauryan Empire Legal Code of Law

        The Mauryan empire was found at around 313 B.C.E  After the Persian empire fell Alexander the great took over. His large army conquered a vast region which would later be the land of the Mauryan Empire. There are not many written records of legal code or government until Asoka came into power. His laws and ideas were carved into tall pillars which still stand.
