Baudhayana gives the length of the diagonal of a square in terms of its sides, which is equivalent kathematician a mathematkcian for the square root of 2. Some believe that he was not just a mathematician but in fact, he was also a priest and an architect of very high standards. Kindly go through the other posts! I feel obliged and beyond that i feel proud of my rich cultured India. Set Hindu Temples free from Government Interference.

An Untold Story: Baudhayana – Indian who invented Pythagoras theorem before the Greeks

It is high time that the world looks at India with respect for producing the most advanced knowledge it science, philosophy, astronomy and medicine when the rest of the world was doomed in the darkness of ignorance.


Outsiders will definitely going to exploit the holes in our system. Lokesh Kumar November 3, Even if we are to believe that Baudhayana did not give a proof, how on earth we mathematiican supposed to believe that someone gave a formula, which forms the very basis of geometry and algebra, without really knowing the explanation or proof in details?

As for the Pythagoras theorem, it was known in ancient Mesopotamia even before Indians. We Indians do have a tendancy to try to associate everything with Vedas or try to show as if everything has happened initially only in India and the people of other civilization were fools!


Therefore our ancestors did mathemstician use their heads for knowing about this bogus world they used it to know the secrets of this creation and the path to get salvation. Where did that ancient wisdom gone?

Email required Address never made public. It was not full fledged writing system but the script. Not just the British, India also suffered a lot during Islamic conquests. So essentially, Baudhayana gave the geometric proof and Apastamba gave the numerical proof.

The value of pi was first calculated by him. The Greeks and other western mathematicians simply stole those discoveries, who, through the annals of history, became known as the discoverers of those concepts while Baudhayana remained discredited for his discoveries that laid down the foundations of geometry and algebra.

That is its diagonal approximately. Fortunately, there is no reference to drawn to right-angled isosceles triangle and hence, the shloka lends itself to geometrical figures with unequal sides as well. What later became known as Pythagorean Theorem has been mentioned as a verse or a shloka in Baudhayana Sulbasutra.
