Bareilly
 

Barally is a city in Bareilly district in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Standing on the Ramganga river, it is the capital of the Bareilly division and the geographical region Rohilkhand. It is a center for the manufacture of furniture and for trade in cotton, grain, and sugar. Geographically it forms the outer gateway to enter Uttarakhand State. This fast-growing city is also known as Bans-Bareilly (Bansaldev & Baraldev). Though Bareilly is also a production center for cane (Bans) furniture, but it is just a coincidence. The name Bans Bareilly is not derived from its big bans (bamboo) market. It derived after the name of two prince named Bansaldev & Baraldev (Son of Local King). The status of the city has been upgraded when its name was included in the "Counter Magnets" of National Capital Region (NCR), because it is equidistant from New Delhi, the capital of India and Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. Bareilly has a lot of potential for setting up industries and to attract people to settle here. Historically it was the part of the ancient kingdom of Panchal and of Kshatriya Rajputs. In the Medieval period it was under the Rohillas. The modern city's foundation was laid by Mukrand Rai in 1657.

Hindu temples

Bareilly is also home to a host of Hindu temples. Four Nath (Shiva) temples are situated on the city's four corners: the Alakhnath, Trivatinath, Madhinath, and Dhopeshwarnath temples.

Another historical temple of Lord Shiva is in Lala Champak Rai Ki Bagia near Alakhnath temple in front of the Ganga Temple. It is roughly 200 years old. Due to limited access, having no paved roads leading up to it, is frequented by fewer devotess than its more popular counterparts.It is also referred to as the Jagannath Temple.

Near the Alakhnath Temple is the Tulsi Math. Tulsidas, the acclaimed writer of the Ramacharitamanas, said to have been the re-incarnation of Valmiki, the author of the Ramayana, made this site his home sometime around 1600 CE.

Another culturally significant temple is the Chunne Miyan's Lakshmi Narayan Temple (located in Katra Manrya street near Bara Bazar). Its origin dates back to the time when Hindus migrating from the recently formed Pakistan at the time of independence in 1947, came to settle in Bareilly. These Hindu migrants built a small place of worship amongst some existing ruins but later discovered that the place belonged to Fazal-ul-Rahman, whose nickname 'Chunne Miyan'. Chunne Miyan gave not only the land but also financial aid for the construction of the temple. Since then the temple is popularly known as Chunne Miyan's Mandir and is situated in the Katra Maanrai region of Koharapeer.

There is another reputed temple of Lord Doopeshwarnath which is considered the place where Draupadi and Dhrishtadyumna were born by a grace of Lord Shiva in the Mahābhārata era.

There is another famous Temple in Bareilly situated in Rajendra Nagar "Bankey Bihari Mandir". Bankey Bihari Mandir is very beautiful temple in Bareilly.
