Historical Background
Ludhiana city was founded in the time of Lodhi dynasty
which ruled in Delhi from 1451-1526 A.D. The legend
goes that two Lodhi Chief Yusaf Khan and Nihand Khan
were deputed by Sikandar Lodhi (1489-1517 A.D.) to
restore order in this region. They camped at the site of
present city of Ludhiana which was then a village
called Mir Hota. Yusaf Khan went across the river
Sutlej in Jalandhar Doab to check Khokhars who were
plundering the Doab and made a settlement at
Sultanpur while Nihand Khan stayed back and founded
the present city at the site of village Mir Hota. The
new town was originally known as Lodhi-ana, which
means the town of Lodi's. The name later changed to
the present name Ludhiana.
