# Hinduism was revived under the Sungas. The caste system was also revived with the rise of the Brahmanas. # Another important development during the Sunga reign was the emergence of various mixed castes and the integration of foreigners into Indian society. # The language of Sanskrit gained more prominence during this time. Even some Buddhist works of this time were composed in Sanskrit. # The Sungas patronised art and architecture. There was an increase in the usage of human figures and symbols in art during this period.
