History

Originally part of Bashahr, but was taken from that state by Raja Man Singh of Kullu in about 1703, but only remained in his possession until his death in 1719, when Bashahr regained possession. In 1803 it was seized by the Gurkhas of Nepal but restored in 1815 to Raja Bikram Singh of Kullu. When Kullu was annexed in 1841, Raja Thakur Singh continued as titular Raja and Mian Jaggar Singh remained in possession of Sangri.
