Map of uttarakhand

Uttarakhand formerly known as Uttaranchal is a state in the northern part of India. It is often referred to as the “Devabhumi” (literally “Land of the Gods”) because of numerous Hindu temples and pilgrimage centres found throughout the state. On 4 March 2020, Gairsain and a town in Chamoli District, was declared the summer capital of the state.[28]The High Court of the state is located in Nainital.

History

Archaeological evidence supports the existence of humans in the region since prehistoric times. The region formed a part of the Uttarakuru Kingdom during the Vedic age of Ancient India. During the medieval period, the region was consolidated under the Katyuri rulers of Kumaon also known as ‘Kurmanchal Kingdom’ which was in map of uttarakhand. After the fall of Katyuris so the region was divided into the Kumaon Kingdom and the Garhwal Kingdom. In 1816, most of modern Uttarakhand was ceded to the British as part of the Treaty of Sugauli and after that britssh . Although the erstwhile hill kingdoms of Garhwal and Kumaon were traditional rivals but the proximity of different neighbouring ethnic groups and the inseparable and complementary nature of their geography, economy, culture, language, and traditions created strong bonds between the two regions which further strengthened during the Uttarakhand movement for statehood in the 1990s.
