History

The history of Bulandshahr begins even before 1200 BCE. This region is close to the capital of the Pandavas - Indraprastha and Hastinapur. After the decline of Hastinapur, Ahar, which is situated in the north-east of Bulandshahr District, became an important place for the Pandavas. Later the king Parma made a fort in this part of the region and a king named Ahibaran laid the foundation of a tower called Baran (Bulandshahr). Since it was perched on a highland it came to be known as "high city", which translates as Bulandshahr in Persian language. King Ahivarn or Ahibaran was a Kshatriya and a Suryavanshi (lineage of the Sun). He was the 21st descendant of Samrath (Emperor) Mandhata, the ruler of Ayodhya. As per Mahalakshmi Vrat Katha, it is under Emperor Mandhata lineage that at one stage son of King Vallabh, Agrasen was born and at another stage son of King Parmaal, Ahivarn was born; both of whom further started their own Vansh: Agrawal (or Agarwal) and Varnwal (or Barnwal).

As per an old treatise on Indian Caste system 'Jati Bhaskar', it is understood that Samrath Mandhata had two sons Gunadhi and Mohan. King Parmaal was the descendant of King Gunadhi while King Vallabh was the descendant of King Mohan.

During 1192 AD when Mohammad Gori attacked India, his Senapati (Military commander) Qutubbudin surrounded Fort Barn and with the help of traitors was able to kill King Chandrasen Dor and in the process take control of the Barn kingdom. He ordered the inhabitant of Barn-sahar to either adopt Islam or die. Most of the people were brutally killed and their head hanged on the fort minars.

After the fall of Barn-sahar the Baranwal community lost the leadership and direction and in the process scattered to different parts of India, mostly to the Gangetic plains of India and started living under the various family names of Lala, Modi, Goyal, Bakshi, Choudhary (Jats), Patwari, Parsariya, Simriya, Nagar, Arya, Shah.

At present the Barnwal population is around half a million. They are mostly spread in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal along with a sprinkled presence in Rajasthan, MP and Maharastra and the neighboring Kingdom of Nepal. Some of them have spread globally and settled down in UK and USA.

The ancient ruins found at places Bhatora Veerpur, Ghalibpur, etc. are indicative of the antiquity of Bulandshahr. There are several other important places in the District from where statues belonging to the medieval age and objects of ancient temples have been found. Even today several historical and ancients objects such as coins, inscriptions etc. are preserved in the Lucknow State Museum. Moreover, according to the Hindu mythology the pandavas had an encounter with prajapati daksh, father-in-law of Hindu lord Shiva; the place of conversation, a pond, is in Bulandshahr.

Revolt of 1857

During the Revolt of 1857, a message of resolution was carried from Aligarh to Bulandshahar by Pandit Narayan Sharma on 10 May 1857.

The Jats, Gurjars of Dadri and Sikandrabad area began destruction of inspection bungalows, telegraph offices, and government buildings as they were symbols of foreign rule. The government institutions were looted and burned to ashes.
