DISTRICT   PROFILE

 

Historical Back ground of the District :

Shajapur is situated in the northwestern part of the state and lies between latitudes 32"06' and 24" 19' North and longitude 75" 41' and 77" 02' East.  It was recognised at the time of Shahjahan. Shahjahan’s army decided to take a halt here due to the natural beauty of the area in 1640. At that time, this place was known as "Khankarakhedi". Shahjahan and his army liked this place very much. When Shahjahan became the Emperor he appointed Meer Bigo as Koutwal. Meer Bigo and Shri Jagannath Rawal constructed a wall with four gates in four directions and developed a marketing centre in the middle of the city. In honour of Emperor Shahjahan, the town was named Shahjahanpur, which subsequently reduces to Shajapur. In Shahajahanpur twelve areas were located named Magriya, Mahupura, Dansi, Muradpura, Vajeerpura, Kamreedpura, Lalpura, Dayra, Mugalpura, Golyakhedi, Juganbadi meerkala. Muradpura was named after Shahjahan's son and Muradpura and Meerkala were named after Meer Bigo himself.

It is said that Chadralekha River (which is now called Chiller) was flowing in the North direction, but after the construction of the huge fort it was brought from East as a PARIKHA of the fort for safety.  During Shahjahan’s regime (1628-1658) Jama Maszid and a number of temples were built. Shahjahan honoured Shri Jagannath Rawal by giving the Jageer of Moja Magariya.

During Aurangjeb’s regime (1656-1707), this area was totally ignored. After the downfall of moughal dynasty, Shahjahanpur became a part of Gwalior state in 1732. During Scindhiya’s regime "Shahjahanpur" became "Shajapur" and flourishes. Tarabai built a beautiful palace in the fort. In 1904 it became a district headquarter.     

At present Shajapur is surrounded by Ujjain in the west, Sehore & Dewas in the South, Rajgarh in the east and Jhalawad District of Rajasthan in the North.
