Chadoora has a rich history. Famous Malik Hyder hailed from Chadoora.

Malik was a very influential landlord and a close friend of Emperor Jahangir. The emperor reposed great trust in him.

It is said that after the death of her first husband, Nur Jehan (Jahangir’s wife) was given in Malik’s custody by the emperor, before he finally married her and the woman became powerful enough to influence the decisions of the state.

Malik Hyder also chronicled the history of Kashmir. He was honoured and rewarded by the Mughals for his talents.

Jahangir has eloquently praised the beauty of Chadoora and mentioned in his 'Tuzk-e-Jahangiri', about a tree which would tremble all over, if only a branch of it was pulled. The tree, he says was known as Halthal. There is no such tree present in the area or anywhere else, but going by the description of the emperor, it seems that it must have been a delight for him to see the tree.

At Chadoora, there lies a grave of Mir Shams-ud-Din Araqi, a Shiite scholar.

Ali Dar, the counsellor of the last native ruler of Kashmir, Yusuf Shah Chak and his son, Yakub Chak’s tutor also belonged to Chadoora.

The present Chadoora town was once a Karewa or Vudr (terraced or high end plateau). That is why almond orchards are found plentiful in Chadoora because they grow best in Karewas.

Jahangir used to visit this place for hunting. He rechristened the place as Noorabad after his beloved wife, but the name was not popular, so the king had ordered reversion to its older name.

Chadoora held a place of prominence during the Mughal period. The Mughals had constructed some buildings here, including a small palace and an ammunition depot.
