Brief About Muzaffaranagar District
A HISTORICAL OUTLINE
In pages of history and revenue records SARVAT was known as pargana which was given as JAGIR to one of the chieftains named SAIYED MUZAFFARKHAN by emperor SHAHJHAN. He founded the city of Muzaffarnagar in 1633 with lands of KHERA & SUJRU. His project was completed by his son MUNAWAR LASHKAR KHAN who in turn named the city after his father MUZAFFARKHAN.But recent finding of archeological site at village MANDI (Tehsil SADAR) in west of river KALI takes the roots of district Muzaffarnagar to HARAPPAN civilization. Hordes of gold ring like objects and other precious stones prove that the site was the part of mature HARAPPAN culture and also important center of trade during ancient times. More excavations are being carried out by Archeological Survey of India and in near future better picture will emerge from these findings.Proximity with HASTINAPUR and KURUKSHEHTRA indicates that this district was hub of activities during the MAHABHARAT era. With exceptions of few findings of GREECO-ROMAN coins, there is hardly any direct mention of the region for a long period of time. But with strategic location of MUZAFFAR NAGAR, it can be safely presumed that there were a lot of political as well as economic activities here. RAJPUTS, TAGAS and BRAHMINS dominated the area according to C.H.NEVILLE, I.C.S. in his compilation of Muzaffarnagar Gazetteer. Later JATS replaced the TAGAS.Persian literature has mention of the place during TIMUR's invasion of India. A large number of Hindus gathered at BHOKAR HERI on the banks of river GANGA to resist his armies according to TIMUR. But unorganized Hindu force were defeated by him in year 1399.
