From the historical cultural, theological and archeological History in Ghaziabad point of view Ghaziabad is a prosperous city. This has been proved from the research work and excavations done in the district. the excavation carried out at the mound of Kaseri suitated on the bank of river Hindon, 2 km north from Mohan Nagar shows that civilization was developed here in 2500 BC.

Garhmukteshwar which provides salvation to the people and the Pooth village situated on the banks of river Ganges are associated with the Mahabharat period. Nearby is the Ahar region which was supposed to be the capital of Pandava's and Janamejay's Nag yagya site. The Loni fort is associated with Lavanasura of the Ramayana period. As per the Gazetteer the fort was named after Lavanasura (from Lavana it changed to Loni).

On the eastern border of the district is situated the village "KOT" which is associated with the famous emperor Samundra Gupta, who performed the Ashvamedha Yagya here after destroying the fort and "Kot Kuljam" (princes of the Kot dynasty), which was an incident of great historical importance at that time.

During the reign of Sultan Muhammad-bin -Tuglak in 1313, this entire region had become a huge battle field. Sultan Nasiruddin who was famous for his simplicity and honesty spent his childhood in the Loni fort here. The attack of Taimur came on this fort and the human massacre by him are well known references of history. The importance of Loni increased during the Mughal period as the Mughal King used to come here for hunting and pleasure trips. A Baage Ranap is a memorial of that period.
