Journey through Chess History: Chess, a game that transcends cultures, originated in northwest India around the 6th century. Originally known as "chaturaṅga" — symbolizing infantry, cavalry, elephants, and chariots — it underwent several evolutions to become the game we recognize today. By the 9th century, it had voyaged through the Silk Road to Western Europe and Russia. Upon reaching the Muslim world post the conquest of Persia, its nomenclature changed, and the term "checkmate" emerged from the Persian phrase "shāh māt," meaning "the king is helpless". It continued to evolve, and by 1475, the game underwent significant rule changes to resemble contemporary chess.
