Kulla Chor

Kulla Chor

Kulla Chor is an ancient city in India . The city of Jalalpur Jattan was founded by a Gujjar named Jalal and Kula Chor, and a place in Jalalpur Jattan, was built by Chandragupta Maurya, an Indian ruler in 300 BC. Excavations in the area revealed that Kula Chor was the mint of the Maurya Dynasty. It is pertinent to mention that a new wave of people appeared in India in 12th century known as the Kuchour tribe. It can be assumed that the place was populated by the Kula Chours, instead of Chandragupta.

A local historian, Mansoor Behzad Butt, believed that Chandragupta had built a fort in Islam Garh, a suburban village of Jalalpur Jattan. The original name of the village could not be ascertained but the fort became famous as Islam Garh Fort with the passage of time. Only some deteriorating remains of the fort exist today. Later, the fort had been the mint of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, of Lahore, in 1832. The present papulation of Jalalpur Jattan is about 70,000.
