Bathinda, now commercially important town of Punjab, has an obsure history. It was earlier called as Vikramgarh, later in the Mohammedan period it was called Tabar-Hind. This was transposed to become Bathinda. Also some documents record it as the earlier capital of Raja Jaipal of Kashmir, which was later captured by the Mahmud of Ghazni.

This is also the Fort where the first empress of Delhi, Razia Sultana, was imprisoned.
