Where did the game of Chess originate from?

There were no exact record on where  and when the game of chess was first played. Historians assumed that the game most likely originated in ancient India, where it was called chaturanga. This word refers to the four members of an Indian army: the foot soldier, the elephant, the chariot, and the horse.

The game was brought to neighboring Persia in the 6th or 7th century, where its name became shatranj.
