History

Koil (कोईल) or Kol (कोल) was ancient name of Aligarh. In the ancient times the people of Kampilya were later known as Koil. The Koīl people came from Kampilya and founded the city known as Kampilgarh, situated south east of Ganges. The town of Kampilgarh later became popular as Koil which is now Aligarh.

According to James Todd[1] There is yet an unexplored region in Panchala ; Kampilanagara its capital, and those cities established west of the Indus by the sons of Bajaswa.

In Mahabharata

During mahabharata period Kampilya was the capital of King Drupada. The Pandavas, with their mother, fled on from forest to forest and town to town after escape from the house of lac. Now they went in one disguise and again in another, till; at last they came to the town of Ekachakra, and being there received in the outer rooms of a Brahman and his family, they settled down to live as learned men by begging. They lived for many months in simplicity and much happiness in the town of Ekachakra. Then they said good-bye to their host the Brahman of Ekachakra and set out for Kampilya, the capital of Drupada.[2]

Koil Gotra

The Koil gotra of Jats gets this name from Kol tehsil in Aligarh.

Thakur Deshraj writes [[1]] -

प्राचीन समय में ये लोग कांपिल्य कहलाते थे। इसी नाम से इनका देश प्रसिद्ध था। कांपिल्य से उठकर इन्होंने कंपिलगढ़ बसाया। जो कि गंगा के दक्षिण-पूर्व में था। यह कंपिलगढ़ ही भविष्य में कोइल नाम से मशहूर हुआ जो कि अब अलीगढ़ कहलाता है। ‘बंगला विश्व कोष’ में नगेन्द्रनाथ बसु लिखते हैं - सन् 1757 ई. में जाट लोगों ने रामगड़ पर अधिकार कर लिया और उसका नाम कोइल रखा।1 इनके हाथ से कोइल मराठों ने ले लिया और पीरन नाम के फ्रांसीसी को वहां का हाकिम नियुक्त किया था। हमें काइल का इससे भी पहले का वर्णन एक प्रचलित राग ढोला में मिलता है। यहां अर्थात् कंपिलगढ़ में फूलसिंह पंजाबी (जाट) राज करता था। उसने कछवाहे राजा प्रथम की स्त्री को छीन लिया था और उसे अपनी रिवाज के अनुसार स्त्री बनाना चाहा था। कुछ समय तक महाराजा सूरजमल जी भरतपुर का भी कोइल पर अधिकार रहा था।
