History[edit]

Bhaderwah is also known as Nagon ki bhoomi, which means "land of snakes."[1] Bhaderwah Town (Nagar Bhaderwah) was known as "Hettary Nagar" and prior to that, there were two other towns namely "Donga Nagar" and "Udho Nagar." Both the Nagar was situated around villages Mondha which is about 3 km to the east of present Bhaderwah town. At one point both the Nagars were flooded due to torrential floods from Himalayas, and the presence of the big boulders today reveal the story of disaster that occurred then. Later on, the people of Bhaderwah selected a place for their rehabilitation in Seeri (from word "seer" meaning a vast piece of land), now known as Seeri Bazar, a vast field belonging to a Zamindar (farmer) and reconstructed their dwellings around it.
