Hoshiarpur is an ancient city in Punjab. So ancient that its roots go back to the fourth century and thus it has withstood the test of time to today emerged as one of the developing places in the country. It is also very commonly called the land of mangoes because of the production of that tropical fruit in Hoshiarpur.

Situated in the Sivalik ranges which is at the foothill of the Himalays this is one of the scenic places in Punjab and has been a place of great importance throughout the whole history. Recent excavations actually place the date of Hoshiarpur in the prehistoric ages. It has been found thatthis land was a part of the ancient Indus valley civilization. Not only has that it had proof of habitation as far back as the stone ages. Many stone artefacts have been found and this gives the land a value which is beyond comparison. Later came the Suryavanshis and the Pandavas and this place has always featured in the great legends.
