History of ghaziabad

Ghaziabad has a towing history from the mythological, archaeological, monarchical, patriotic and industrial point of view. It is one of the ancient places which is mentioned in the mythological epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana. Garhmukteshwar, Pooth Village and Ahar region was prominent during the Mahabharata period and the history of Loni Fort dates back to the time of Ramayana. It is believed that the Loni fort is associated with Lavanasur. The archaeological evidences point the existence of a civilization developed near Mohan Nagar, on the banks of River Hindon in 2500 B.C.\n\nThe monarchical history of Ghaziabad is also very vivid. It states that Ghaziabad was founded by Wazir Ghazi-ud-din who named the city after himself as Ghaziuddinnagar in 1740 AD. Later the name changed to Ghaziabad. This modern city has undergone the reign of several rulers like Samudragupta, Muhammad-Bin-Tughlak, Taimur, Mughals and Marathas. During the Colonial rule, Ghaziabad has played a major role in the struggle for Indian Independence. Ghaziabad has given birth to some of the eminent freedom fighters who fought vehemently under the leadership of Gandhiji during the revolution. In the year 1940, first modern industry was set up in Ghaziabad that expanded post-independence. On 14 November, 1976, Ghaziabad was declared as a district and since then, it has prospered to leaps and bounds in terms of social, economic, political, industrial and agricultural aspects.
