Uttar Pradesh

Moradabad is built on a ridge forming the right bank of Ram Ganga, a tributary to the great Ganga. Its chief mosque or the Jama Masjid is a handsome building standing high on the river bank. Close by, are the ruins of a fort built around the same time.

It is believed that the brassware industry traces its roots to Moradabad. The brassware industry in Moradabad saw its boom during the early 19th century and Britishers carried the art of making brassware to foreign markets. Other immigrating artisans from Benaras, Lucknow, Agra and many other places formed the current cluster of brassware industry in Moradabad. The industrial city has maintained its niche in the handicraft industry, with its brassware now being exported to countries like USA, Britain, Canada, Germany and to the Middle East and Asia.
