History[edit]

Moat at the Aligarh
Aligarh
Fort

Before the 18th century, Aligarh
Aligarh
was known as Kol. The history of the district up until the 12th century is obscure.[3] According to an 1875 gazetteer written by Edwin T. Atkinson, the name Kol was given to the city by Balarama, who slew the great Asura (demon) Kol there and, with the assistance of the Ahirs, subdued this part of the doab.[4] In another account, Atkinson points out a "legend" that Kol was founded by the Dor tribe of Rajputs
Rajputs
in 372. This is further confirmed by an old fort, the ruined Dor fortress, which lies at the city centre.[citation needed] Some time before the Muslim conquest, Kol was held by the Dor Rajputs. At the time of Mahmud of Ghazni, the chief of the Dors was Hardatta of Baran.[4] Statues of Buddha
Buddha
and other Buddhist remains have been found in excavations where the citadel of Koil stood, indicating a Buddhist influence. Hindu
Hindu
remains indicate that the citadel probably had a Hindu
Hindu
temple after the Buddhist temple.[4] In 1194, Qutb-ud-din Aibak marched from Delhi
Delhi
to Kol, "one of the most celebrated fortresses of Hind".[4] Qutb-ud-din Aibak appointed Hisam-ud-din Ulbak as the first Muslim governor of Kol.[4] Kol is mentioned in Ibn Battuta's Rihla, when Ibn Battuta
Ibn Battuta
along with 15 ambassadors representing Ukhaantu Khan, emperor of the Mongol Chinese Yuan dynasty, travelled to Kol city en route to the coast at Cambay
Cambay
(in Gujarat) in 1341.[5] According to Battuta, it would appear that the district was then in a very disturbed state since the escort of the Emperor's embassy had to assist in relieving Jalali from an attacking body of Hindus
Hindus
and lost an officer in the fight. Ibn Batuta calls Kol "a fine town surrounded by mango groves". From these same groves the environs of Kol would appear to have acquired the name Sabzabad or "the green country".[4] In the reign of Akbar, Kol was made a Sirkar and included the dasturs of Marahra, Kol ba Haveli, Thana Farida and Akbarabad.[4] Akbar
Akbar
and Jahangir
Jahangir
visited Kol on hunting expeditions. Jahangir
Jahangir
clearly mentions the forest of Kol, where he killed wolves.[3] During the time of Ibrahim Lodhi, Muhammad, son of 'Umar, was the governor of Kol. He built a fort at Kol and named the city Muhammadgarh, after himself, in 1524–25. Sabit Khan, who was then the governor of this region, of Farrukh Siyar and Muhammad Shah, rebuilt the old Lodhi fort and named the town after himself: Sabitgarh. The Jat
Jat
ruler, Surajmal, with help from Jai Singh of Jaipur
Jaipur
and the Muslim army, occupied the fort of Koil. Koil was renamed Ramgarh and finally, when a Shia
Shia
commander, Najaf Khan, captured it, he gave it its present name of Aligarh. Aligarh Fort
Aligarh Fort
(also called Aligarh
Aligarh
Qila), as it stands today, was built by French engineers under the command of French officers Benoît de Boigne
