Panipat was one of the five cities (prasthas) founded by Pandavas during the times of theMahabharata. Its historic nam being Panduprastha.
Panipat was the scene of three pivotal battles in the Indian history. All left disaster effects to India. After every battle that fought in panipat India went in to the foreign rule
The First Battle of Panipat was fought on 21 April 1526 between Ibrahim Lodhi, Sultan of Delhi, and the Timurid warlord ZaheeruddinBabur
The Second Battle of Panipat was fought on 5 November 1556 between the forces of Akbar and emporer of India Samrat Hem Chandra Vikramaditya
Hem Chandra had a large army, and initially his forces were winning, but suddenly Hemu was struck by an arrow in the eye and he lost his senses. On not seeing their leader in his howdah on the back of an elephant, his army fled. He was later captured and beheaded by the Mughals. His head was sent to Kabul to be hanged outside Delhi Darwaza and torso was hanged outside Purana Quila in Delhi. This Second battle of Panipat thus ended the 'Hindu Raj' established by Hemu in north India.
The Third Battle of Panipat was fought in 1761 between the Afghan invader Ahmad Shah Abdali and the Marathas under Sadashivrao Bhau Peshwa of Pune. Ahmad Shah won but with a very heavy casualty rate on both sides. It resulted in the worst defeat of Marathas in their history.The war led to a power vacuum which later led to the British conquest of India
Thus the panipat has a important place in history of india but on sad note. I don't no whether it bought any luck to pandavas who are its founders. But for india fighting a battle there is making a path to foreign rule.
