About the Saharanpur district

Brief About Saharanpur District
The physical features of the district have proved that Saharanpur region was fit for human habitation. The archaeological survey has proved that the evidence of different cultures is available in this area. The excavations were carried out in different parts of the district, i.e Ambakheri,Bargaon,Hulas,Bhadarabad and Naseerpur etc. A number of things have been found during these excavations, on the basis of which, it is established that in Saharanpur district, the earliest habitants were found as early as 2000B.C. Traces of Indus Valley civilization and even earlier are available and now it can be definitely established that this region is connected with Indus valley civilization. Ambakheri, Bargaon, Naseerpur and Hulas were the centres of Harappa culture because many things similar to Harappan civilization were found in these areas .

From the days of the Aryans, the history of this region is traceable in a logical manner but it is difficult at present to trace out history and administration of the local kings without further exploration and excavations.The history of the area goes back to ages. With the passage of timeit’s name changed rapidly. During the region of Iltutmish Saharanpur became a part of the Slave Dynasty. Muhammad Tughlag reached northern doab to crush the rebellion of Shiwalik Kings in 1340. There he came to know about the presence of a Sufi saint on the banks of 'Paondhoi' river. He went to see him there and ordered that henceforth the place should be known as 'Shah-Harunpur' by the name of Saint Shah Harun Chisti. 

Akbar was the first Mughal ruler who established civic administration in Saharanpur and made it ' Saharanpur -Sarkar' under Delhi province and appointed a Governor. The Jagir of saharanpur was honoured to Raja Sah Ranveer Singh who founded the city of Saharanpur. At that time Saharanpur was a small village and served as army cantt area. The nearest settlement at that time were Shekhpura and Malhipur . Most of the part of Saharanpur was covered by forests and Paondhoi' 'Dhamola' and 'Ganda Nala ( Kregi Nala) were swampy/marshy. The climate was humid hence it was prone to malaria.
