Bareilly audio|Bareilly.ogg|pronunciation (Hindi: बरेली, Urdu: بریلی) is a city in Bareilly district in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Standing on the Ramganga river, it is the capital of Rohilkhand Division and is a center for the manufacture of furniture and for trade in cotton, grain, and sugar. The city's population in 2001 [ Census March 1 2001] ] was 699,839. Geographically it forms the outer gateway to enter Uttarakhand State. According to Government of India, the district Bareilly is one of the Minority Concentrated District in India on the basis of the 2001 census data on population, socio-economic indicators and basic amenities indicators [] .

This fast-growing city is also known as Bans-Bareilly, named after the name of two sons of the King of Bareilly, one is Bansal Dev & second is Baral Dev. Though Bareilly is also a production center for cane(Bans) furniture, but it is just a coincidence. The name Bans Bareilly is not derived from its big bans (bamboo) market. The status of the city has been upgraded when its name was included in the Counter Magnets of NCR, because it is equidistant from New Delhi and Lucknow and has a lot of potential for setting up industries to attract people to settle. Historically it was the part of the ancient kingdom of Panchal. In the Medieval period it was under the Rohillas. The modern city's foundation was laid by Mukrand Rai in 1657.

Bareilly is also home to a number of famous Hindu temples. It has four Nath (Shiva) temples at its four corners, Alakhnath, Trivatinath, Madhinath, and Dhopeshwarnath. Another tample of Lord Shiva is in Lala Champak Rai Ki Bagia Near Alakhnath tample opposite Ganga mandir. It is about 200 years old but due to not linked with road directly it is still waiting for people come here. It is also known as Jagganth Tample.Near Alakhnath there is a Tulsi math where Tulsidas writer of Ramayan was stayed for some time near about in 1600. One of the well known temples is the Chunne Miyan's Lakshmi Narayan Mandir (located in Katra Manrya street near Bara Bazar), Chunne Miyan's Lakshmi Narayan Mandir Its origin goes back to the time when the Hindus migrating from Pakistan to India at the time of independence in 1947, came to Bareilly. Nearly all Muslims of Bareilly that migrated to Pakistan settled in Karachi. These Hindu migrants built a small place of worship amongst some existing ruins but later discovered that the place belonged to Fazal-ul-Rahman, who was also known as 'Chunne Miyan' (his nickname). Fazal-ul-Rahman filed a claim against the illegal occupation of the land. Meanwhile, the proceedings of the temple continued. Once, HarMilapi ji Maharaj came from Haridwar to deliver a holy Sermon . Chunne Miyan was so impressed by his sermon that he decided not only to withdraw the case but also gave financial aid for the construction of the temple. Since then the temple is popularly known as Chunne Miyan's Mandir and is situated in the Katra maanrai region of Koharapeer. There is also another reputed temple of lord DoopeshwarNath which is assumed to be the place where Draupadi and Drishtadyumn was born by a grace of lord shiva in Mahabharata era.
