History of AhmedgarhToday Ahmedgarh’s visible economic growth may not easily make us believe that this town roots are traceable even before great Harrapan civilization. However, many startling archeological discoveries made many years back in Malerkotla Tehsil gave us compelling evidence that a pre Harrapan civilization indeed lived in many areas of Sangrur District. Only if this astonishing historical revelation is made known to today’s Ahmedgarh people, then they will surely take immense pride over the fact that they live in such a historical town.
There is another very notable account about Ahmedgarh history. Ahmedgarh town was one of the first planned towns of our country. Town planning happened almost three decades before India got independence in 1947. It was planned as a market town on the model of Lyallpur, now known as Faisalabad town located in present day Pakistan. This town planning though was hardly capitalized after India got independence and hence today Ahmedgarh is just as unplanned as any other small town of Punjab.
