Sepoy Mangal Pandey shot and missed two Europeans, failed to kill himself, and was hanged.By April, the fire of Pandey’s Uprising scorched north India and reached Meerut, the second-largest East India Company garrison.The prominent local landmark known as the Jama Masjid, dates from this period and is said to have been built by Mahmud's vizir.
The revolt, which catapulted Meerut into international prominence, started in March, 1857 at Barrackpore, Bengal.
After the archaeological excavations at ‘Vidura-ka-tila’, a collection of several mounds named after Vidura, in 1950–52, a site 37 km (23 miles) north-east of Meerut, it was concluded to be remains of the ancient city of Hastinapur, the capital of Kauravas and Pandavas of Mahabharata, which was washed away by Ganges floods.
Meerut also contained a Harappan settlement known as Alamgirpur.
The city saw Sikh and Maratha invasions in the 18th century, with interruptions by Jats and Rohillas.
Walter Reinhardt, an English soldier, established himself at Sardhana and some parts of the district came under his rule.
The fortifications and houses were razed to the ground with prisoners ordered to be flayed alive.
