Agriculture continues to be one of the most important occupations of Faizabad district situated on the banks of river Ghaghra (locally known as Saryu). Wheat and paddy are main crops of Rabi and Kharif. Paddy covers about 72.85% area in Kharif and in Rabi wheat is grown in about 83.52% area. Faizabad, the old capital of Awadh, is the headquarters of Faizabad District and Faizabad division as well. It is a municipal corporation with Ayodhya in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It was the first capital of the Nawabs of Awadh and has monuments built by the Nawabs, like the Tomb of Bahu Begum, Gulab Bari. The earliest reference made to Faizabad is said to be in the Ramayana, in which the city is referred to as Saket, the mythical private estate of King Dashrath, father of Lord Ram but the other sources indicate that Saket, which means Heaven in Sanskrit, is the ancient name of holy city of Ayodhya not Faizabad. However, more accurately, the reference is found in Medieval and Modern history, when Nawab Saadat Ali Khan, Burhan-ul-Mulk was given the charge of the Subah of Awadh around 1722 by the Mughal Court. Nawab Saadat Khan made the first settlements along the banks of Ghaghra with a cantonment consisting of a fortress and mud barracks. Due to these temporary dwellings, Faizabad was first known as Bangla (implied meaning- hutment).
