History

According to Prof. B.S. Dhillon[2]The very name of this place suggests that it owes its name to a person called Amar Sidhu. Sidhu is a very visible Jat clan name. For example, the royal families of the "Phulkia States" of the British period were the Sidhu Jats. Many Jats name their sons and daughters "Amar" Amar Singh son and Amar Kaur for daughter.[3]
