India officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second most populous country, and the most populous liberal democracy in the world. India is a union of twenty-eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. New Delhi is the capital of India.
Firozabad is a city in India, within the state of Uttar Pradesh. This city was built by Firoz Shah a Mughal king. From the earliest it was famous for glass and bangle works, and its related small scale industry is famous throughout the world. Due to underdeveloped industry, literacy rates are very low. Firozabad is located in north central India, in western Uttar Pradesh state, 40 kilometers away from Agra and around 200 kilometers away from Delhi, at the northern edge of the Deccan Plateau.
The area of the district is about 0.8 percent of total area of Uttar Pradesh, and the population is 1.1 percent of the state's total population. The city is also an important market center. It has severe winter and summer seasons. The district is mostly flat and its slope is from North West to South. Firozabad was known as Chandwar Nagar in ancient times. The name Firozabad was given in the regime of Akbar by Firoz Shah Mansab Dar in 1566.

Firozabad experiences a boom with day tourists, owing to the clear air, town character with rich culture, high quality of life and conspicuously original history. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people also combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in India.
