Explain the religious policy of Harsha.


 In the beginning, Harsha was a devotee of Shiva and worshipped Shiva and Surya. But after coming in contact with Hiuen-Tsang, there was a greater impact of Buddhism on him. He was very tolerant and respectful towards all the religions. He used to organise a conference at Prayaga, Allahabad, the Sangam of Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati, every five years. At this occasion, he used to give alms to about five lakh needly and poor people of all religions.
