Parikshitgarh (परीक्षितगढ़) is a village in Mawana tahsil in Meerut district in Uttar Pradesh.

Location

It is near to the village Hastinapur, situated in Mawana tahsil itself.

Presence of the township of Parikshitgarh, closeby at a distance of 10 miles from Hastinapura, solidifies the definite geographical location of Hastinapur.

History

The town of Parikshitgarh is named after Parikshit, the grandson of Arjuna, who became king of Hastinapur when the five brothers renounced the world and went into the Himalayas. Both the towns are similarly located on small hillocks which were the original fortresses at these locations.

A massive inundation about 3000 years ago during a great flood in the Ganges totally drowned the cities and left them choked with silt up to roof level.
