Ludhiana is a large industrial city in Ludhiana district in the Indian state of Punjab. It is India's largest city north of Delhi, with an area of 310sq. km and an estimated population of 1.6 million as of the 2011 census. The city stands on the Sutlej River's old bank, 13 kilometres south of its present course. The BBC has called it India's Manchester.
Ludhiana City, to its residents, consists of the Old City and the New City. One finds gulmohars and jacarandas planted by the British along the avenues of Civil Lines, as well as other flowering trees. On the other hand the Old City contains almost no vegetation or parks, except for a few isolated pipal trees, holy to the Hindus, as it is supposed to be the abode of Lord Shiva.
Ludhiana's history goes a back a long way to 1481 when it was just a small village called Meer Hota. From the 1st to the 4th century it was initially ruled by the yodhas. Subsequently it came under King Samudragupta and the Rajputs. Much later in the 9th century the original Ludhianavis actually settled here. Then came the Punjabi races of Sidhus, Gills, Sandhus and Grewals from the jungle of Jagraon. It has been under the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1806) in the early 19th century, for a short period. It became an important British cantonment during that time, before the British took it over in 1809.
