Bilaspur is the state's capital of the same name, founded in the 7th century and known as Kahlur. The ruling dynasty was the Chandel Rajputs, who claimed to have descended from the Chanderi rulers of present-day Madhya Pradesh. The city of Bilaspur was founded in 1663. The state later became a separate state of British India and was under the jurisdiction of the British province of Punjab. On May 13, 1665, Guru Tegh Bahadur arrived in Bilaspur to attend the funeral and funeral of Raja Dip Chand in Bilaspur. Rani Champa of Bilaspur offered Guru some lands in his state, which Guru accepted for Rs 500. The land includes the villages of Lodhipur, Manipur and Sahota. Guru Tegh Bahadur inaugurated a new settlement on June 19, 1665, which he named Nanaki in honour of his mother. In 1932, the state became part of the new Punjab State body, and in 1936 the Punjab Hills State body was split from the Punjab State body. On 12 October 1948, the local ruler, Raja Sir Anand Chand, the last ruler of Bilaspur [DYNASTY CANDEL], joined the Government of India. Bilaspur became an independent state of India under a chief commissioner. On July 1, 1954, the State of Bilaspur became a district of the State of Himachal Pradesh under the Act of the Indian Parliament. When the Sutlej River was dammed to create Govind Sagar, the historic city of Bilaspur was submerged, and a new city was built upstream from the old city. It has an average elevation of 673 m (2,208 ft). It is located in the foothills of Bandla, along the left bank of the Sutlej River, which forms a picturesque landscape due to the creation of the Govind Sagar Dam. It is the first central city after entering Himachal Pradesh on the way to Manali.
