Sambhal is a district of Uttar Pradesh, India. Sambhal is a Muslim dominated area. It takes 2 hours 40 mins to reach Sambhal and is 158.6 kilometres (98.5 mi) from New Delhi and 355 km from the state capital Lucknow towards east. It was initially announced as Bhim Nagar but later on due to a big protest in the city the name was changed to Sambhal just for the sake of the losing identity of the city. Though the district headquarters issue has become very controversial but in a recent meeting of the ministers of UP government, the cabinet minister Shivpal Yadav assured the people to establish the headquarters of the district in the city Sambhal very soon.
