There are many schools of thought in Hinduism

So, do all astika schools of thought believe that Ramayan and Mahabharata are real history and not mythology?

    Vedanta believes they are real. Purva Mimamsa believes they are mythological. I'm not sure about the other 4 astika schools.

    @DarkKnight There are many schools of vedanta. Advaita (Shankara), Vishishtadvaita (Ramanujacharya), Dvaita (Madhavacharya), Shuddhadvaita (Vallabhacharya), Achintya Bhedabheda (Chaitanya Mahaprabhu), Dvaita advaita (Nimbarkacharya). There are subsects like ISKCON etc. All vedanta schools believe that ithihasas are real.
