Music has always been an integral part of Indian culture. Certain instruments have served Indian music since the ancient times. Can anyone tell me what are other such instruments that have existed since the ancient times and do they still exist today?

In Hindu mythology, each deity is associated with some kind of musical instrument. Goddess Saraswati is seen with Veena in her hands. Lord Shiva is associated with Damru and Lord Vishnu with conch, Lord Krishna is with flute and Narada with an Ektara.

What? Harmonium was invented in England; I thought it to be an Indian musical instrument. What are the musical instruments that are of Indian origin?
