Hapur History:- Hapur is a city, as well as the headquarters of the Hapur district in western Uttar Pradesh, India. Located about 60 kilometers (37 mi) east of New Delhi, the city is part of the Delhi National Capital Region (NCR). National Highway 9 passes through the city, connecting it to Delhi.

Under the British Raj, Hapur was within Meerut District, was surrounded by several fine groves, and carried on a considerable trade in sugar, jaggery (gur), grain, cotton, timber, bamboo, and brass, and steel utensils.
