History of king Manikchandra

The 800-year-old dilapidated fort of Raja Manikchand, situated on the northern bank of river Ganga in Pratapgarh district, will once again attract tourists and historians from across the country and abroad as the tourism department has taken over the responsibility of its maintenance.

To re-decorate this historical fort, the tourism department has made an ambitious plan of one crore 36 lakh rupees, for which 50 lakh rupees have been given by the government to the tourism department in the first phase.

Regional Tourism Authority (Allahabad Division) RN Yadav said that along with the Ghat of river Ganges, construction of a link road from Aliganj market to the fort of Raja Manikchand, parking space under the fort, passenger shed, drinking water and proper lighting. With the arrangement, construction and beautification of Shahabad Ghat will be done

Before 1191, when Raja Jaichand had built a fort at a place called 'Kara' on the southern bank of the Ganges in Manikpur, Pratapgarh, 126 km from Kannauj, at the same time Raja Manikchand, the half-brother of Raja Jaichand, built a fort on the northern bank. and declared it the capital of his kingdom.

The pages of history have preserved many golden memories of this fort. It is said that Sanyogita, wife of King Prithviraj and daughter of King Jaichand, stayed for several days in this fort of her uncle Manikchandra, but due to the obstinate attitude of King Jaichand, even King Manikchand could not help her

Taking advantage of the mutual rivalry and jealousy in the princely states, Mughal ruler Syed Shahabuddin Ghori defeated King Manikchand in the war and established his rule over this fort.

With the arrival of Emperor Akbar in the Mughal period, Manikpur fort had returned to glory. In this fort, Aurangzeb also visited Manikpur from 1658 AD to 1707 AD while visiting the Awadh region to see the moon of Eid and then celebrated Eid here

Historians believe that after seeing the moon of Eid, Emperor Aurangzeb had to offer prayers in the morning, for which army soldiers prepared a mosque overnight in Shahabuddinabad village, adjacent to the Manikpur fort, which was named Ek Shab-e-Masjid. .
