Kanpur
( General Information )

Situated close to Lucknow on the banks of the Ganges, Kanpur, besides being a major industrial town, also has religious importance. The place is mentioned by AL-Beruni in Kitaabul-Hind. The dargah of the Sufi saint, Makdoon Shah, built by Feroze Shah Tughlag, is situated here. The British set up an army cantonment and the first tannery was setup at Jajmau in the 19th century which led to the proliferation of tanneries that exist at Kanpur today. Kanpur played an important role as a centre for the freedom movement. Independence activists such as Nanareo Peshwa, Tatya Tope, Chandrashekhar Azad, etc., were closely associated with the city. Many great hindu literary figures like Acharya Mahavir Parshad Dwivedi, G.S. Vidyarthi, etc., are also product of Kanpur. A business city, enjoys prolific trade, especially in leather accessories, plastic, textiles and can be termed in this connection as the Manchester of East India. The city has recently undergone tremendous change.
