Our Brief History

The Foundation of Amroha

In 479 BC, Raja Amarjoda of the Bansi dynasty was the ruler of amroha.Then from 676 AD 1305 it was also ruled by Rajputs and Mughals.

The Battle of Amroha was fought on December 20 of 1305 when an army of the Delhi Sultanate crushed an invading Mongol army. For years the Mongols have been attacking India’s northwest borders.

According to many scholars, in the year of 670 AH, Hazrat Sharafuddin Shahwilayat settled in Amroha. Local legend says that the animals who live in his mazar (shrine), especially scorpions, never harm humans and this is the reason the city is popular for his shrine, known as “Bichchu wala Mazar” meaning ‘The shrine of scorpions’.
