Hastinapur holds its root in the epic Mahabharat which is based on the famous war of Kurukshetra. It was the capital of the kingdom of Kauravas. It holds its relevance during the Mughal times as well. It was ruled by Raja Nain Singh Nagar. Many temples were built in and around Hastinapur by him. Hence, the city was ruled by both Kauravas and Gujjar at separate times. The place is full of temples built by many rulers over time. In fact, the abundance of archaeological artifacts is so much that the archaeologists are excavating even to this day. Not only does Hastinapur have temples for Hindus, but also for Jains.
