In in the early half of the 19th century, the region was part of the Sikh Empire under the rule of Ranjit Singh. After the Partition of India in 1947, Himachal Pradesh was joined by 21 former Punjab hill states to form a union territory on 15 April 1948. The territory was enlarged several times afterward. In 1971 the union territory became the 18th state of the Indian Union.
Today Himachal Pradesh is divided into three divisions: Shimla, Kangra and Mandi.
