Prior to the 18th century, the area that is now called Aligarh was referred to as Kol or Koli. While the history of the area before the 12th century is a bit obscure it is known that the area was initially under Rajput control until around the 12th century when a Muslim Governor was appointed by Qutb al-Din Aibak. Over the next few centuries, the area had been renamed several times based on the prevailing ruling authority. All this activity led to a rise in thing to do in Aligarh with the city becoming an established population centre. \nThe city got its name from one of its most infamous and visited Aligarh attractions, the Aligarh Fort that was build during the rule of Ibrahim Lodi in the 16th century by Muhammad, who was a son of the then governor of Kol, Umar. Eventually, in 1803, post the Battle of Aligarh the city came under British control.
