India | Uttar Pradesh


Bhongaon is an old town situated in Mainpuri District of Uttar Pradesh. It lies on the junction of the Agra road with the Grand Trunk Road and is about 14 km east of Mainpuri.

Historical evidences reveal that this town was founded by a mythical Raja, Bhim Sen after whom it was called Bhimgram or Bhimgaon. During the reign of Akbar, it was the headquarters of a pargana (a pre-permanent settlement revenue unit) and there is a fort, now in ruins, on a high mound which marks the residence of the governor (amil).

Today, there are several industrial and commercial establishments. Mahadev Temple, a mosque and also some old buildings of artistic merit, which are situated at the heart of the town, are the interesting spots here.

Bhongaon Railway Station is on the Farrukhabad-Shikohabad rail route. Agra Civil Enclaves is the nearest airport.
