What was Ashvamedha ?

The Ashvamedha is a horse sacrifice ritual followed by the Śrauta tradition of Vedic religion. It was used by ancient Indian kings to prove their imperial sovereignty: a horse accompanied by the king's warriors would be released to wander for a period of one year.

Ashvameda is a forbidden rite for Kaliyuga, the current age.
