gold jewellery has been recovered .

MUZZAFFARNAGAR web site)
In pages of history and revenue records SARVAT was known
as pargana which was given as JAGIR to one of the chieftains named SAIYED
MUZAFFARKHAN by emperor SHAHJHAN. He founded the city of Muzaffarnagar in
1633 with lands of KHERA & SUJRU. His project was completed by his son
MUNAWAR LASHKAR KHAN who in turn named the city after his father
But recent finding of archeological site at village MANDI (Tehsil SADAR) in
west of river KALI takes the roots of district Muzaffarnagar to HARAPPAN
civilization. Hordes of gold ring like objects and other precious stones
prove that the site was the part of mature HARAPPAN culture and also
important center of trade during ancient times. More excavations are being
carried out by Archeological Survey of India and in near future better
picture will emerge from these findings.
Proximity with HASTINAPUR and KURUKSHEHTRA indicates that this district was
hub of activities during the MAHABHARAT era. With exceptions of few findings
of GREECO-ROMAN coins, there is hardly any direct mention of the region for
a long period of time. But with strategic location of MUZAFFAR NAGAR, it can
be safely presumed that there were a lot of political as well as economic
activities here. RAJPUTS, TAGAS and BRAHMINS dominated the area according to
C.H.NEVILLE, I.C.S. in his compilation of Muzaffarnagar Gazetteer. Later
JATS replaced the TAGAS.
Persian literature has mention of the place during TIMUR's invasion of
India. A large number of Hindus gathered at BHOKAR HERI on the banks of
river GANGA to resist his armies according to TIMUR. But unorganized Hindu
force were defeated by him in year 1399.

Later on this district was adopted
by the SAIYEDS of different clans. During Mughal period this area became a
favorite resort of royal nobles of Mughal court and many of them obtained
The history of BARHA SAIYEDS is intimately connected with this district. But
the derivation of word BARHA is very uncertain. The TIHANPURI SAIYEDS,
JAGNERI SAIYEDS ,CHATTAURI family and the KUNDLIWAL family were famous
families of Muzaffarnagar. In later part of Mughal era famous SAIYED
brothers HASAN and ABDULLA became KING MAKERS. The period of 1707 to 1720
was their prime time. But after fall of SAIYED brothers the political
scenario changed and Muzaffarnagar was plundered by SIKHS and other
adventurers. Soon the British established themselves in India and 1826
Muzaffarnagar became a revenue district of EAST INDIA COMPANY regime.
