The Gupta Empire
The Gupta empire was an empire in India around 320 to 550A.D. It was founded by Mahaja Sri Gupta and was considered the golden age of India. During this time several contributions to modern day were made in India, mainly on the subject of mathematics. The Gupta were the ones to create the arabic numerals and come up with the concept of zero. Because they invented zero they were able to create the decimal system.
