& Foundation of Kapurthala
It is said that Kapurthala was founded in
the 11th Century during the period of Mahmood Gaznvi. This town was established
by Rana Kapoor of Rajput Gharana, of Jaisalmer. On his name, the place has got
its name- Kapurthala.
Almost two centuries ago, When the notorious Ahmed Shah
descended upon India for the fifth time in his rapacious career and defeated the
Mahrattas from the Punjab. The Sikh community re-established and strengthened
their position after about a generation of historical oblivion. When the Sikhs
slew Zain Khan in December 1763, Sikh independence became an established fact.
Ahmed Shah's subsequent raids of 1764 and 1767 achieved nothing against the Sikhs.
One of themost resplendent figure in Sikh history after the ten Gurus, barring
the great Maharaja Ranjit Singh, was Sardar Jassa Singh Ahluwalia.

The story of Kapurthala is inextricably
inter-woven with the life and struggles of Jassa Singh.
was Sardar Jassa Singh Ahluwalia(1718-1783) who evicted Ibrahim Khan, a usurper
after the death of Mughal Governor Adina Beg, from Kapurthala. Jassa Singh selected
Kapurthala as his capital.
He was successor of Nawab Kapur Singh, who was
given the honour of Nawab by the Sikh Confederation in 1754 AD. He was a brave
man and held at very high esteem by his people.
The word Ahluwalia comes from a name of Ahlu
village that was raised by Sardar Sadhu Singh ( Sado) of Kapurthala and is now
in Lahore district of Pakistan.
As Jassa Singh Ahluwalia had no issue, his
second cousin S.Bhag Singh was made ruler. After his death in 1803 his son Fateh
Singh became the ruler. He had close friendship with Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
- 1837 Raja Fateh Singh Ahluwalia, Raja of Kapurthala. b. at Kapurthala Fort,
He was the first king of Punjab
to enter into a treaty with the East India Company in 1806. On his death in 1836
his son Raja Nihal Singh became the king. S. Jassa Singh had acquired lands both
to the North and South of Sutlej River. But the treaty of 1805 stipulated that
the Sutlej should form the boundary between East India Company's territory and
Raja Ranjit Singh's emergent kingdom. Raja Fateh Singh served as an able Lieutenant
in Ranjit Singh's campaigns but because of some misunderstanding in 1825, he left
the north of Sutlej and lived a lonely life thereafter. His successor Raja Nihal
Singh who took the reign in 1836, also remained neutral but his soldiers inevitably
backed Sikhs and as a result Southern portion of Kapurthala was annexed by the
British. After that all the kings of Kapurthala tried to convert it into a model
city-state rather than concentrating on the British-India war.
1852 S Nihal Singh died and his son Raja-i-Rajjan
Raja Randhir Singh (above) took over. During the 1857 war of Independence
he was awarded a title of Grand Commander of the order of the star of India (GCSI)
by the British for his support. His son Maharaja Kharak Singh ruled the state
from 1870 to 1877.
Jagatjit Singh (1872-1948)
Maharaja Kharak Singh 's son Tikka
Jagatjit Singh (1872-1948) became the ruler when he was barely five years old.
During his minority the state was administered by an officer of Punjab Commission,
assisted by a council composed of the Principal officials of the state. The Maharaja
had the rare honour of occupying the Gaddi for 67 years and actually ruling the
State for more than 55 years ( till 1948)
Sketch of Maharaja Jagatjit Singh
The young Maharaja was very
carefully brought up and received liberal education under the guardianship of
able and carefully selected tutors. At an early age he showed a singular linguistic
aptitude and acquired an intimate knowledge of English and French, both of which
he speaks most fluently besides learning Sanskrit, Hindi, Persian, Urdu and Gurmukhi.
During his minority the State was administered by a succession of brilliant British
Civilians, many of who became, in due course, Lieut-Governers. Among the most
prominent of them were Sir Lepel Griffin, Sir Mackworth Colonel Massy. These superintendents
who were ably assisted by a Council of trusted State officials introduced various
useful reforms, which were conducive to the efficiency of the State administration
and the general welfare of the people.
The Maharaja took great interest in
raising buildings, which included the main Palace, The Royal Courts or Court of
Justice, The Grand Moorish Mosque, The Gurudwara at Kapurthala and at Sultanpur
Lodhi (Gurudwara Ber Sahib). The Maharaja assumed government office state at the
eighteen years age on 24th November 1890. The Maharaja had the rare honour of
occupying the Gaddi for 67 years and actually ruling the State for more than 55
years (till 1948).
was one the most widely traveled king of his time. He had been to all over Europe,
North, Central and South America, Egypt, China, Japan, Siam, Java and the Straits
Jagatjit Singh with his courtiers
The Maharaja had 13 guns
Honours permanently and of 15 as a personal distinction. His title was 'His Highness
Kings of Kings Brig. Maharaja Jagatjit Singh, G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E., G.B.E.' He represented
India in the League of Nations in Geneva in 1926,1927 and 1929. He was also a
member of plenary session of second round Table Conference in London in 1931.
The Maharaja stood fifth in order of precedence among the ruling chiefs of Punjab.
It is extremely rare if not altogether impossible to find an Indian Ruler occupying
the Gaddi of his ancestors for a long period of sixty-seven years. Very few among
the princely order of India had been favoured by fortune to actually rule their
States for over fifty-four years like His Highness Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of
Jagatjit Singh on an elephant
Anyone who had the privilege
of knowing His Highness intimately will recognize in him the most charming of
hosts possessing a sense of quiet humour which rendered him inimitable as a raconteur.
As a great traveler he had widened the circle of his friends and acquaintances
in both the hemispheres, but it was as a great gentleman that he had, with his
extraordinary savior-faire, won universal esteem.
Exactly at the age of eighteen
on 24th November, 1890 His Highness assumed the government of his State, the formal
ceremony of investiture being performed by Sir James Lyall, the then Lieutenant
Governor of the Punjab. Scenes of befitting splendour, the whole state being enfete,
marked the occasion.
The keynote of His Highness' policy had always been wholehearted
and thorough co-operation with the British Government, practical sympathy and
toleration with all classes of his subjects and a passion for progress in every
branch of the administration. He had all along taken the keenest personal interest
in the education of his subjects, and in matters relating to the health and sanitation
of the towns in the State. It is entirely due to his initiative that Kapurthala
has always been considered as one of the best-administered and progressive States
in India. Modern Kapurthala is in fact the creation of His Highness' foresight,
broad-mindedness and sagacity.
The successive Viceroys had suitably recognized
his Highness's achievements as a progressive Ruler, and he has been the recipient
of the highest titles and honours from His Majesty the King Emperor. King George
V at te Delhi Coronation Durbar conferred the hereditary title of Maharaja and
the G.C.S.I., upon him in 1911. To these were added the G.C.I.E., at the termination
of the Great War and G.B.E., on the occasion of his Golden Jubilee in 1927.
1918 in recognition of War services his Salute was raised from eleven to thirteen
guns permanently and to fifteen as a personal distinction. As a remitted altogether
the annual tribute of Rs. 1,31,000, which formerly the State paid in lieu of Military,
services. At the recommendation of Field Marshal Lord Birdwood, His Highness was
made an Honorary Colonel of the 45th(Rattreys' Sikhs) in the Indian Army, and
was promoted to be a Brigadier early in 1943.
As an earnest of the great popularity
and the unique position, which he commands in foreign countries the French Republic,
conferred upon him the Grand Cross of the Legion d'Honneur in 1924, and he had
received the highest decorations from Italy, Spain and several other European,
Asiatic and South American countries.
His Highness represented India on the
League of Nations at Geneva in 1926,1927 and 1929 and was selected to be a member
of the second plenary session of the Round Table Conference in London in 1931.
His Highness had travelled far and wide over
the four continents, and had been twice round the world. He had been all over
Europe, North, Central and South America, Egypt, China, Japan, Siam, Java and
the Straits Settlements. The first of his foreign visits was undertaken in 1893
when His Highness had the honour to being invited as a guest of Queen Victoria
on the marriage of his Imperial Majesty King George V then Duke of York. The Maharaja
took part in Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebration when the queen herself
with the K.C.S.I. in London invested him. During his various visits to England
His Highness had always been cordially received by the British sovereigns, having
stayed at the Windsor castle as a guest of Queen Victoria three times, and also
at the Balmoral Castle in 1900 before Her Majesty Queen Mary favored the maharaja
with particular kindness and consideration throughout their region and invited
him several times to private luncheons at the Buckingham Palace. He enjoyed the
unique privilege of being present at the historic peace conference at Versailles
in 1919 after the last great war. These tours apart from broadening his own mental
outlook had been of practical value to the state in enabling His Highness to infuse
a progressive spirit into his administration.
Amongst the European Sovereigns
with whom the Maharaja claimed the privilege of personal acquaintance might be
mentioned Czar Nicholas of Russia; Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria, Hungary;
Emperor William 11 of Germany; King Humbert and king Victor Emanuel of Italy;
King Leopold, King Albert and King Leopold 11 of Belgium; King Alfonso of Spain
(a very intimate friend); King Gustav of Sweden and King Hakon of Norway. He had
also known every president of the French Republic from M. Sadi Carnot in 1893
to the last president, M. Lebrun, and presidents Wilson and Roosevelt of the United
States of America. During his three visits to Japan, he was first received by
Emperor Mutsuhito and on two occasions by the present Emperor.
of his charming personality and cultivated taste was apparent, particularly in
the capital of the State, which had been embellished with handsome palaces and
public buildings. In many ways Kapurthala had benefited from the Maharaja's application
of ideas gained as a frequent and observant traveller.

A Popular Host
During the exceptionally long period of 67 years
that the Maharaja had been reigning, Kapurthala had been honoured from time to
time by visits from members of the British Royal Family and others of exalted
rank. His Royal Highness Prince Victor of Wales paid a visit to Kapurthala in
1890, when the Maharaja was a minor. The Marquis of Dufferin and Ava was the first
Viceroy and Governor-General of India to visit Kapurthala in 1886, but from Lord
Hardinge down to the Marquis of Linlithgow, His Highness had rejoiced to welcome
every succeeding Viceroy, all of whom had gladly continued unbroken the chain
of Vice regal visits.
The Maharaja was one of the twelve Ruling Princes of
India whose State was visited by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales in the
course of his Indian tour in 1921-22. At the State Banquet at Kapurthala the Heir
to the British throne congratulated the Maharaja on the ready help afforded by
the State in the last Great War.
Almost every important Ruling Prince of India
had been received by His Highness in his capital and entertained lavishly. In
many cases this hospitality had been extended to three generations of the same
Ruling House who were all intimate friends of His Highness, to mention specially
Their Highnesses the Maharajas of Kashmir and Patiala. His Highness had been cordially
entertained in their States by the late Nizam and twice by His Exalted Highness
the present Nizam and by the late Maharajas of Baroda, Mysore and Gwalior.
the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of his reign in 1927 which was solemnized with
great éclat, in addition to Their Excellencies the Viceroy, the Commander-in-Chief
and the Governor of the Punjab, a galaxy of the most eminent Ruling Princes of
India, over twelve in number, participated in the celebrations at Kapurthala.
The world famous Monsieur Clemenceau "le tigre" visited Kapurthala after
the Great War, and General Gaouraud, Military Governor of Paris, a veteran of
undying fame came to Kapurthala in 1928. King George of Greece who was a personal
friend of the Maharaja visited Kapurthala in 1935 and stayed for a few days.
The fidelity of Kapurthala to the British crown is
well known. The present ruler has fully maintained the glorious traditions of
his house in this respect. In 1878-79, on the out break of the Afghan war, the
State troops, comprising 500 infantry, 100 cavalry, three guns and a hundred artillery,
rendered active service on the Bannu frontier under General Watson. The detachment
was highly spoken of by the British officers for its discipline and good conduct.
In 1897 the Maharaja dispatched his imperial service regiment (which was formed
in 1888) for active service in connection with the Tirah Campaign. The regiment
received its baptism of fire and gave an excellent account of it.
of 36 rank and file lost its way at Kurman, in the Kurrum Valley and was ambushed
by a relentless enemy, but this small force put up a gallant defense again superior
odds and preferred heroic death to surrender. On this occasion the Government
of India communicated their heart felt regrets and sympathies to his Highness,
who raised near the regimental lines a permanent memorial to the heroism of this
ill-fated but gallant little detachment.
At the outbreak of the Great War
in 1914 His Highness was the first Prince who offered to place all his resources
at the disposal of the British Government. The Kapurthala Imperial Service regiment
was dispatched for active service in East Africa, where it remained for nearly
four years and did excellent work. His Highness himself visited the battlefront
in France in 1915 at the invitation of the late Earl of Birkenhead; His Highness
took part at the official opening ceremony of India's memorial at Neuve Chapelle
On the successful termination of the Great War the regiment saw
active service in Seistan during the Afghan Campaign, and later on spent six months
performing imperial duties in Mesopotamia.
In the Second World War His Highness
placed his personal services and all the resources of His State the disposal of
the King Emperor. The Kapurthala Battalion was the first among the Indian States
to proceed on active service and took part in actual fighting at Singapore; where
the Japanese along with troops of several other Indian states unfortunately captured
The state had done commendable work as regards recruitment, and had raised
over 3,000 combatants for the Indian army and over 1,800 technical recruits since
the outbreak of the war the state had contributed about Rs. 1,20,000 to the various
war fund, while investments amounting to nearly Rs.21, 25,000 in the defense bonds,
war loan, saving banks, etc. have been made. Special measures had been taken to
render help to the families of soldiers on the front, and to safe guard their
interests by promulgating special regulations. A special staff of Welfare Officers
had been appointed to look after the dependents of absent soldiers and to render
than every assistance.
The Maharaja had been favoured with high honours by
the King Emperor, and was rich in the esteem and affection of a wide circle of
friends in both the hemispheres. He was above all fortunate to had won and retained
all along the profound loyalty and devotion of his subjects. He was venerated
as the father of his people, which owes its present frame and prestige entirely
to his personality and benevolent guidance.
Agriculture & Industry During
To protect the economic interests of the agriculturists Co-operative
Credit Societies numbering 280 were functioning successfully in the villages of
the State in that time. During his period, An Agricultural Demonstration Farm
had been setup, which supplied seeds of improved varieties to the Zemindars, and
did propaganda work in favour of the scientific methods of cultivation. Work had
also been done on village upliftment and improvement of animal husbandry during
regime of Maharaja.
Particular attention had been devoted to promote Industrial
development, and the State had industries like Sugar Mill at Phagwara & Hamira,
a few miles from Kapurthala. Great industrial expansion had taken place in the
State in those years, and a number of Chemical, Steel and Leather Factories had
come into existence. One of the biggest Distilleries in India was setup at Hamira
Architectural Monuments During Regime
The Maharaja Jagatjit
Singh was completely captivated by France, the French Art, the Culture and the
Style of LOUIS XIV. His Agrat Palace and gardens were modeled on Versailles. He
hired a French architect M. Marcel and entitled the project, the 'Elysee Palace'.
Because of exorbitant costs of the building, which started out with red sandstone,
had to be finished off with pink plaster. It costed around Rs. 3,00,000 at that
time. It was built in renaissance style with the sunken park in the front and
has many similarities to that of Palace of Versailles. The construction of Palace
took roughly eight years (1900-1908).
Expert European and Indian workmen carried
out the interior decoration of the Palace, which is unique of its kind in India.
The great Durbar Hall is one of the finest in India and is entirely in the Indian
Style appropriate for the ceremonials, which were performed on important occasions.
The 'Beaux Arts' so popular in 19th century has been performed at various roofs
etc. the center section of Palace was remarkably like a pavilion-end and from
Fontainebleau. The Masard roof (it a roof with double slope, the lower being steeper
than the upper) with its 'Oeil-de-boeuf' windows were copied from te Paris Louvrs
as were the coupled columns lining the blind arcade on the two wings. Lapis Lazuli
painting depicting had been brought from Italy
Among other buildings in the
State, the most notable are the Courts of Justice, the State Gurudwara, The Moorish
Mosque and the magnificent Gurudwara Ber Sahib at Sultanpur. These Buildings are
by common consent striking architectural embellishment of Kapurthala and monuments
to the refined taste and culture of the Ruler.
Social Position During Regime
the exceptionally long period of 54 years' reign it had been the Maharaja's earnest
endeavour to so all he could for the advancement of his State and his people.
Particular attention had been devoted to the beneficent departments of the State.
The expenditure on Education, Medical and Public Works Departments had risen gradually
and represents nearly 25 per cent of the gross income of the State proper. The
State maintained more educational institutions and the percentage of boys of school
going age attending these schools was higher than in the adjoining districts.
The expenditure of education alone had risen from Rs.22, 000 in 1890 to over two
lakhs per annum since the year 1925.
Hospitals and dispensaries were founded
in all towns and important centers of the State with the object of affording medical
relief within a radius of four miles. The state could boast of an efficient system
of sanitation, sewerage and drainage at that time.
His Highness had wisely
realized almost 25 years ago that the Indian States could not for long remain
indifferent to the political forces working all round, and the rapidly changing
conceptions of Indian society, and that it was necessary in their own interest
to associate the people more intimately with the administration of the States.
Civil bodies composed of a majority of elected members were functioning in
the municipal towns of the state, and were presided over by non-officials. A Rural
board consisting entirely of elected agriculturists supervises village sanitation,
village roads and controls measures of rural welfare. To afford relief to the
destitute of the state and with a view to reduce professional beggary His highness
has decided to establish a poor house at Kapurthala, where the poor and the needy
will be comfortably lodged and properly looked after. The inmates will be trained
in simple and useful handicrafts that will enable them to earn their livings when
they leave the asylum.
