This is a municipal council lying in Kangra located in Himachal Pradesh and earlier it used to be a Kingdom which was under the rule of the Tomara Rajputs. The Pathania clan of the Rajputs tuled here around the 11 century and Pathankot was the capital that time and was known as Paithan then. Now Pathankot lies in the state of Punjab and Nurpur which was earlier called Dhameri which was later changed to its present name by Nur Jehan the queen of Emperor Jahangir.
The queen was so struck by the beauty of the place that she took a decision to stay there and this worried the local leaders a lot since they thought the area would come under the Mughar empire. So in order to sort out this problem peacefully they had to devise a clever plan to keep the Queen away.
