After the era of Mahabharata, there was a revolutionary change in this entire area. Many small republican states came under the rule of the Kosala state, where the kingdom of Kolikas of Kapilavastu and the Kolgis of Ramgram were also detailed in the boundaries of present Maharajganj district.Kolis had built a stupa in Ramgram above the sacred relics of Lord Buddha, which Fahian and Hansang mentioned in his description. From the book Nayyavivali-Sutra, it is known that when Kaushal Naresh Ajatashtru invaded the Lachichvias of Vaishali, at that time Lichichi Ganapraksh Sathak had called for eighteen republics to fight against Ajatashatru. This union was also included in the Kolya Republic. The process of political unification that took place after the sixth century B.C. was the culmination of Ashok’s continuation of the eternal war of Kalinga war by Basundhali. This entire region of Maharajganj district was subject to the Nandas and Maurya emperors. Fahian and Hansang mentioned the attempt of Ramgram of Emperor Ashoka and to remove the metals of Ramgram Stupa by him. It is described in the Buddha Charit (28/66) written by Ashwaghosh that he had abandoned his resolve by moving forward with the Nag’s prayer to protect the stomach and to protect the stupa.
