How Time Travel Began
The first instance of time travel appears in literature is in the Hindu epic The Mahabharata. Kakudmi and his beautiful daughter, Revati, traveled to the court of the god Brahma to get advice on who Revati should marry. After listening to some music, Brahma tells them that time runs differently in his kingdom and that although they felt only a few moments pass, thousands of years had lapsed on Earth. When Kakudmi and Revati return home, they discover they are the first time travelers.
