History

Founded by Sultan Firuz Shah Tughluq (1351-88) on the banks of the Sutlej River, Ferozpur today is a mofussil transportation and administration center and an ancient city located on the banks of the Sutlej River, in the state of Punjab, India. It is a border town on the Indo-Pakistan border with memorials to India's freedom fighters. Three heroic martyrs in India's struggle for freedom, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev, were hanged in Lahore for their revolutionary activities against the British Government on March 23, 1931. They were cremated and a monument stands at their final resting place in Hussainiwala on the Sutlej river bank. Firozpur Cantonment is adjacent to and south of the city, during British times it was one of the largest Cantonements in the country.

Ferozepur has easy access by road and rail to other places such as Amritsar, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Delhi, and Chandigarh, the city is a center of numerous holy shrines and historic places.At the nearby city of Zira a beautiful Jain Swetambar Temple with ancient brass icons and beautiful wall murals is located.

Ferozepur is the oldest British district of Punjab established in 1833 as district headquarters even well before Ludhiana and Amritsar became districts. Ferozepur district even after partition included many areas which were later reorganised to be a part of the Faridkot, Moga, Muktsar and Bhatinda Districts.
