Later, between the 2nd century BCE and 9th century CE, the islands came under the control of successive indigenous family: Satavahanas, Abhiras, Vakatakas, Kalachuris, Konkan Mauryas, Chalukyas and Rashtrakutas, previously is was governed by the Silharas from 810 to 1260.King Bhimdev established his kingdom in the rule of the late 13th century, and brought many settlers to the islands. The Muslim rulers of Gujarat taken the islands in 1348, and they were later governed by the Gujarat Sultanate from 1391 to 1534. The Treaty of Bassein among the Portuguese viceroy Nuno da Cunha and Bahadur Shah of the Gujarat Sultanate established the islands into Portuguese possession in 1534.
The islands suffered incursions from Mughals until the end of the 17th century. During the mid-18th century, the city emerged as an major trading town, with maritime trade contacts with Mecca and Basra. Economic and educational growth characterised the city during the 19th century with the first-ever Indian railway line beginning operations between Mumbai and neighbouring Thane in 1853. The city became a strong base for the Indian independence motion during the early 20th century and was the centre of the Rowlatt Satyagraha of 1919 and Royal Indian Navy Mutiny of 1946. After India’s independence in 1947, the territory of Bombay Presidency retained by India was rebuilt into Bombay State. The area of Bombay State extended, after several erstwhile princely states that joined the Indian union were integrated into Bombay State.
Geologists believe that the shore of western India came into being around 100 to 80 mya, after it broke away from Madagascar. Soon after its objective, the peninsular region of the Indian plate drifted over the Reunion hotspot, a volcanic eruption in the Earth’s lithosphere near the island of Reunion. An explosion here some 66 mya is thought to have laid down the Deccan Traps, a vast bed of basalt lava that covers parts of central India. This volcanic explosion activity resulted in the formation of basaltic outcrops, such as the Gilbert Hill, that are seen at several locations in the city. Further tectonic activity in the region led to the formation of hilly islands divided by a shallow sea. Pleistocene sediments discovered near Kandivali in northern Mumbai by British archaeologist Malcolm Todd in 1939 indicate habitation since the Stone Age. The present day city was built on what was originally an archipelago of seven islands of Mumbai Island, Parel, Mazagaon, Mahim, Colaba, Worli, and Old Woman’s Island. The islands were coalesced into a single landmass by the Hornby Vellard engineering estimate in 1784. By 1000 BCE, the region was steadily involved in seaborne commerce with Egypt and Persia. The Koli fishing community had long occupy the islands. They were Dravidian in origin and included a huge number of scattered tribes along the Vindhya Plateau, Gujarat, and Konkan. In Mumbai, there are three or four of these tribes.
The islands were absorbed into the Maurya Empire under Emperor Ashoka of Magadha in the third century BCE. The empire’s patronage made the islands a epicentre of Buddhist religion and culture. Buddhist monks, scholars, and artists generated the artwork, inscriptions, and sculpture of the Kanheri Caves in the mid third century BCE and Mahakali Caves. After they rejected of the Maurya Empire around 185 BCE, these islands fell to the Satavahanas. The port of Sopara was an major trading centre during the first century BCE, with trade contacts with Rome. The islands were popularly known as Heptanesia to the Greek geographer Ptolemy in 150 CE. After the ending of the Satvahana rule in 250 CE, the Abhiras of Western Maharashtra and Vakatakas of Vidarbha held dominion over the islands. The Abhiras governed for 167 years, till around 417 CE. The Kalachuris of Central India ruled the islands during the fifth century, which were then gained by the Mauryas of Konkan in the sixth and early part of the seventh century. The Mauryas were feudatories of Kalachuris, and the Jogeshwari Caves were build during their regime between 520 and 525. The Greek merchant Cosmas Indicopleustes stay with Kalyan during 530–550. Christianity appeared in the islands during the sixth century. The Mauryan occupancy ended when the Chalukyas of Badami in Karnataka under Pulakeshin II invaded the islands in 610. Dantidurga of the Rashtrakuta Empior of Karnataka conquered the islands during 749–750.
The Silhara kingdom of Konkan ruled the region between 810 and 1260. The Walkeshwar Temple was build during the 10th century and the Banganga Tank during the 12th century under the patronage of the Silhara rulers. The Italian visiter Marco Polo’s fleet of thirteen Chinese ships passed through Mumbai Harbour during May — September 1292. King Bhimdev founded his kingdom in the region in the late 13th century and occupied his capital in Mahikawati. He belonged to either the Yadava dynasty of Devagiri in Maharashtra or the Anahilavada kingdom of Gujarat. He constructed the first Babulnath temple in the region and introduced many fruit-bearing trees, including coconut palms to the islands. The Pathare Prabhus, one of the earliest settlers of the city, were brought to Mahim from Patan and another parts of Saurashtra in Gujarat around 1298 by Bhimdev during his reign. He is also supposed to bring Palshis, Pachkalshis, Bhandaris, Vadvals, Bhois, Agris and Brahmins to these islands. The islands were wrested from Pratapbimba’s leadership by Mubarak Khan, a self-proclaimed regent of the Khalji dynasty, who occupied Mahim and Salsette in 1318. Pratapbimba later reconquered the islands which he governed till 1331. The islands came under the management of the Muslim rulers of Gujarat in 1348, ending the sovereignty of Hindu rulers over the islands.
