Top Tourist Attractions in Baghpat
Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh
The town was originally called ‘Vyagprastha’ – a tigen country, which was found many years ago due of the people of tigers. There are numerous variations of the tale of the naming of the city. The original name of the village was, in one account, ‘Vyagprasth,’ while in another version the village received its name from the Hindi term ‘Vakyaprasth,.’ The town was eventually named ‘BAGHPAT’ and ‘BAGPAT’ in the Mughal era, inspired by those words and variations. After the mourning in 1857, Tehsil Baghpat’s headquarters were built and the city acquired importance.
The city used to be as a tiny town and had a small shopping area called Mandi. Now over 200, Jabita Khan, son of the Chief of Ruhela of Najibabad (Bijnore) Najib Khan, is the creator of this mandi. GUD and Sugar are produced and sold as the principal business activity of the people living in this region.
