About Samana

History of Samana

History of Samana dates back to around 12th century when the town alongwith other adjoining towns, was under regime of a local king called Raja Jaipal. After brief regime of this relatively unknown king Samana region came under regime of barrage of Central Asian Muslim invaders like Shahab-ud-Din Muhammad Gauri, Qutb-ud-Din Aibek and finally the famous Mughal rulers. Amongst all them Mughal rule stood out for many intriguing activities that had taken place during their period. On one hand Samana town had acquired reputation of being land of scholars and saints during Mughals, but interestingly during same time this town was perceived with lot of hostility by Sikh devotees. This is because certain Beg brothers, who had mercilessly executed younger sons of Guru Gobind Singh, hailed from Samana town. Furthermore, even infamous Sayyad Jala-ud-Din, who executed Guru Teg Bahadur, hailed from town. Owing to association with these infamous killers Samana town came to be known as ‘hated town’ during Mughal era. This notorious reputation though faded away with passage of time.
