Some fact about history of Amroha

MA (English) Aligarh

The right & correct answer for all these questions if at all is not impossible hence, does look a difficult preposition! There is no sign of certified history prior to the Islamic regime. In Hinduism there had been no system prevailing that time to preserve and record to historian events. Apart from the historic books of literature yet there are no ancient signs left within “AMROHA” or in its surroundings concerning the Hindu regime, which could highlight the important historical event. This township however, has something to indicate & refer through its name in the Sanskrit language that this residential part did get rehabilitated during the course of time when the language Sanskrit had been prevailing in conversation or at least it had been so commonly used in keeping to locate the names for the township or the cities. The minimum course of time for the same can be termed and referred 500 years BC. In this very context the existence of “AMROHA” may be counted, understood & known to have got rehabilitated since, the period of 2500 years.

These also get an indication of reasonable confirmation from the referred place. Whereby the population is referred in the name of Raja Amar Jodh from the town “HASTINAPUR” In the west of “AMROHA” within the distance of 5 km, still there exists a town normally “Gajasthal”. Its widely known that Raja of “AMROHA” used to keep this Elephants within this yard(Than).

The name of the specific place has been produced and constituted from the words (GUJJ) meaning Elephant and (ASTHAL) meaning House of Elephants which does solidly indicate that the Town ships in these surroundings ultimately get to be rehabilitated in the course of time when the language Sanskrit had been used mostly during conversation.
In reality name “AMROHA” has been derived from a compact word of Sanskrit language namely “AMROVANAM” Which means “Place of Mangoes”.

During the rising age of Arian Nation Northern Ancient town ship in the northern India had their names kept and known in the prevailing Sanskrit language on the names of the valuable trees of various kinds like Rivers, Wheat, Plants, Valued & working Animals therefore, with in the united provincialism the names of the many more town ships, where the mango trees and the Dry Fruits plantation had been exclusive or such trees had their own self preserved Jungles, such as in the district KANPUR and the township of AMROOD & AMOORAHA etc. During the course of time in the beginning and at the end of these names the changes having been taking place such as from “AMROVANAM” it got converted in to “AMROHA” and eventual it is finally left as “AMROHA” from the name “AMROHA” .The Persian writers during the Islamic regime in the context of “ANBAH” means (Mango) used to write “AMBROHA”.

During the rule of King Jahangir many of the historical & literary books yet continued to have the name “AMROHA” written in the style of “AMBROHA”.
