Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 4


Samudragupta (335 - 375 A.D.) was the second ruler of the Gupta Dynasty, succeeding the throne after the death of this father Chandragupta I. Samudragupta was a great ruler and is considered to be one of the greatest military geniuses in Indian history, which is why he is known as 'The Napoleon of India'. In religion Samudragupta was a Hindu, but he was tolerant of other religions and he protected the Buddhists. A clear illustration of this is the permission granted by him to the king of Ceylon to build a monastery for Buddhist pilgrims in Bodh Gaya.
