History of Hamirpur Himachal Pradesh
Hamirpur was ruled by the Katoch dynasty and if the old history is seen, it is believed that in ancient times the rulers of the Gupta dynasty had established their hegemony over this part of the land. And in the medieval period, it was ruled by Muhammad Ghazni, Timurlang. After all this, Hamir Chand, the ruler of Katoch, had taken over Hamirpur. The Katoch dynasty took control of these Ranas to ensure an orderly society. His rule started in 1700 A.D and ruled till 1740 A.D.
Hamirpur was part of Kangra, after its merger with Kangra in 1846, Nadaun was made the tehsil headquarters. This settlement was revised in 1868 and consequently, the tehsil headquarters was changed from Nadaun to Hamirpur. Hamirpur remained a part of Punjab province until 1 November 1966, when these areas were merged with Himachal Pradesh as a result of the reorganization of Punjab. As a result of the rearrangement of districts in the merged territories on 1 September 1972, Hamirpur was carved out as a separate district along with the two tehsils of Hamirpur and Barsar.
