History of Tehri

The name of this district is named after two separate names of Tehri and Garhwal. Where Tehri is made from the word 'Trihari', which means a place which wash three types of sins (which are born, by mansa, verb, karma), the second word is made out of 'gadh', which means the fort. Before the 888, the entire Garhwal region was divided into small 'strongholds', in which separate kings ruled, which were known as 'Rana', 'Rai' or 'Thakur'. Its old name is considered as Ganesha Prayag.
It is said that the Prince of Malwa, Kanakpal once went to the Darshan of Badrinath (now in the district of Chamoli) where he met the powerful King Bhanu Pratap. Raja Bhanu Pratap was very impressed with him, he married his only daughter with Kanakpal and also gave him his kingdom. Gradually, Kanakpal and his next generations increased his kingdom by winning all the fortifications one by one. In this way, until 1803, the Garhwal area was occupied by Sara (in 918 years).
In those years, Gurkhas failed to attack (attempt to capture Langur Garhi), but in 1803, the Gurkhas wins in a battle of Dehradun, in which King Pradhuman Shah was killed. His prince son (Sudarshan Shah), who was very small at the time. Slowly Gurkhas dominated and ruled them for nearly 12 years. Their kingdom spread to Kangra, then Gurkhas were expelled from Maharaja Ranjit Singh with the help of East India Company.
The East India Company again merged Kumaon, Dehradun and East (East) Garhwal into the British Empire and gave it to West Garhwal Raja Sudarshan Shah, then known as Tehri Princes.
Raja Sudarshan Shah made his capital city Tehri or Tehri, later his successor Pratap Shah, Kirti Shah and Narendra Shah founded Pratap Nagar, Kirti Nagar and Narendra Nagar respectively in the capital of this state. These three kings ruled from 1815 to 1949. Then, during the Quit India Movement, the people here too took part in a huge uprising. After independence, in the minds of the people, the desire to be liberated from the rule of the kings started to grow. It was difficult for the Maharaja to rule now. And finally 60th King Manvendra Shah confessed to becoming one with India. In this way, in 1949, the district of Tehri was merged with Uttar Pradesh to make it a district of the same name. Later in the year 24, 1960, the Uttar Pradesh government separated its tehsil and made the District on one side of the Uttarkashi name.
