Hastinapur used to be the magnificent capital of the Kauravas of Mahabharata period. At present, 22 miles north-east of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, the remains of ancient Hastinapur are found along the ancient part of Ganga. Even today the fort is buried in the land, the fort of Pandavas, the palace, the temple and other relics.
According to legendary legend, during the reign of Emperor Bharata, the son of Puravshi Vrishtakshatra was the son of Hastin who made his capital, Hastinapur. It is said that before the Hastinapur, the state capital of his state used to be left-handed. But due to the deluge of the capital, the capital became desolate, then King Hasti made the new capital and named him Hastinapur.
After the Hastin, the Ajamad, Kshak, Kanchan and Kuru respectively have ruled the state of Hastinapur. In the descendants of Kuru, King Shantanu went further from where history began to grow. Shantanu's grandson, Pandu and Dhritarashtra, whose sons Pandav and Kauravas jointly fought the Mahabharata for the division of the state. It has been said in the Puranas that when the capital was destroyed due to the flood of Ganga, Pandav had left Hastinapur and went to Kaushambi.
In the Puranas, Ajvid, son of King Hastin, is said to be the King of Panchal. When King Raja of King Ajmer was ruled by the King of Hastinapur, then his contemporary Raja Sudas was ruled by Panchal.
There was a war with the conquest of King Sudas, which some scholars know from 'Dasharajya war' mentioned in the Rig Veda. During the time of King Sudas, the state of Panchal was expanded. After King Sudas, Kuru, son of the clan, increased the power and brought the Panchal kingdom under his control, the state was jointly called 'Kuru-Panchal'. But some time later the Panchal became free again.
From the excavation of archaeologists, it is known that the ancient settlement of Hastinapur was earlier than 1000 BC and it remained for many centuries. The second settlement was settled in about 90 BC, which lasted till 300 BC. Third settlement 200 B.C. From about 200 CE until the last settlement existed from 11th to 14th century. Now there are remnants of habitation somewhere and the remains of ancient Hastinapur are also scattered. There is also a huge fort of the Pandavas buried in the land which is being destroyed in the absence of supervision. There are palaces, temples and other buildings inside this fort.
