Not only Chandragupta Maurya was a great conqueror and an able empire-builder, but also he was one of the strongest administrators the history of India saw. He unified the Indian empire and after unification, important social and political reforms were carried out by Chandragupta Maurya under the advice of Chanakya. A strong central administration was established with extremely ordered bureaucratic structure. Because of such a strong administration both trade and agriculture were thrived and made the economy very strong. Art and architecture flourished to a great extent during Mauryan Empire. Buddhism and Jainism became important religion.
