Sangrur town, a district headquarter is situated on the Ludhiana-Jakhal railway line. It is well connected with Patiala, Ludhiana, Chandigarh and Bhatinda by road. It was a capital of erstwhile
princely state of Jind till 1948.It is said that a man called Sanghu, a Jat, founded Sangrur town about 400 years ago. Hence the town is named after him. Raja Sangat Singh chose this town as his capital in 1827 as it was close to Patiala and Nabaha, the headquarters of the other two Phulkian states. Until then, Sangrur was a small village consisting of mud houses.

Zain Khan, the governor of Sirhind, a prot�g� of Ahmed Shah Abdali was defeated by the Sikhs in 1763 AD. The province of Sirhind was partitioned among the Phulkian Sardars after its fall and it became a part of the Nabha state.

During Sardar Mahan Singh Shukarchakya �s wedding with Raj Kaur, daughter of Raja Gajpat Singh of Jind, there was a quarrel between the two Phulkian states.Subsequently, Raja Gajpat Singh of Jind won Sangrur town from Raja Hamir Singh of Nabha.

The city has four gates: the Sunami, Patiala, Dhuri and the Nabha gates. Each gate is named after the neighboring town located in that direction. Beautiful gardens and shops surround the city.
