HOSHIARPUR

History

Hoshiarpur was part of the Indus Valley Civilization and legends have it that several places in the district can be linked to the Pandavas. From the Shiwalik range in the district, there were 16 sites where stone-age tools were found. In the 10th Century A.D. the Shiwalik areas came under the power of Pratiharas. During this period, the arts of the local tribesmen took a distinct shape. In 965 A.D., Jaipal came to the throne, thereby infusing the Hindu-Shahi style into Dholbaha valley. The Parmara rulers stayed in power from 988 to 1260 A.D. It was believed that Raja Shankar Dass built a fort in what is now the town of Garhshankar before 1174 A.D., but it was later taken over by Mahmud Ghazni. Soon after that, this district was invaded by Muslim rulers from time to time. From the 19th century, it was under Sikh rule before being occupied by the British until 1947.
