Moradabad Overview

Moradabad is a city located towards the western part of Moradabad District of Uttar Pradesh. Famous for its brassware industry, Moradabad is often referred to as the ‘Brass City’ or ‘Peetal Nagri’ of India.

The city of Moradabad is the administrative headquarters and commercial and industrial capital of Moradabad District. The city is situated at an average elevation of 286 meters above sea level on the Gangetic plains, along the banks of River Ram Ganga, a tributary of River Ganges. The land of Moradabad has a gentle slope to its west, towards the Ganges. Hindi, Punjabi, Urdu and English are the most common languages used in Moradabad.

As per records, ‘Chaupala’ was the initial name of Moradabad. It was an important territory of the Panchala Kingdom, Nanda, Maurya, Gupta and Maukharis Empires. When it was captured by Rustam Khan, the Governor of Sambhal, in 1624, it was called as Rustam Nagar. It became a province of Rohilkhand State in the early 1700s. Later it was named as Moradabad after Prince Morad Bux, the son of Mughal Emperor Shahjahan.

Moradabad was ruled by the Nawabs of Awadh during 1774 - 1800. When the State of Rohilkhand was annexed to the British Empire in 1801, it was divided in to Bareilly and Moradabad districts. The city also witnessed a great uprising during the First War of Indian Independence that took place in 1857.

Today, Moradabad is famous for its brass work. Mohammed Yar Khan, who migrated from Afghanistan to India in the 1860s, is regarded as the founder of the brassware industry in Moradabad. Moradabad, today, has trade relations with foreign nations like USA, Britain, Canada, Germany, etc. and also with the Middle East and Asian countries. This city is also the largest producer of copper and its alloys in India and is counted among the top five copper product exporters in the world.

Moradabad tourism offers attractions like Pataleshwar Temple, Sai Temple, Jama Masjid, etc. and its highlight is Peetal Mandi, the main market that sells artistic brassware, jewellery, trophies, decorative pieces, etc. This city also offers excursions to Almora, Aligarh, Haridwar, Rajaji National Park, etc.

New Delhi International Airport is the nearest airport to Moradabad. Moradabad is accessible by rail as it is a major railway station and also the Divisional Headquarters of Northern Railways, on the Howrah – Amritsar main route. Moradabad, located on NH 24, can also be reached by road from the rest of the country.

The best time to visit Moradabad is from February to April and August to November.
