History of Ambala
Archaeological Surveyor C.J. Rodgers found coins from the Hunas, Mihirakula, and Toramana empires, as well as coins from the Indo-Parthian Kingdom. This showed that after the Mauryan empire fell apart, the area was taken over by the Indo-Parthians and later became part of the Hunas’ territory.
In 1709, the Battle of Ambala took place, and the Sikhs beat the Mughals and took over Ambala.
According to the history of old India, Aryans once lived in Ambala. Near Ambala, which was the capital of the Aryan country at the time, there was a well-known place called Sarudhna. In 1847, Ambala was given the rank of a district. Here, the British built a Cantonment, which is now bigger than the main city.
When malaria broke out in 1841, the British left the cantonment at Karnal. In 1843, Ambala built a large cantonment to take its place. The industries in the Ambala area are well-known, especially the ones that make scientific tools, metal castings, kitchen mixer grinders, and submersible motor pumps.
Nathuram Godse, who killed Mahatma Gandhi, and Narayan Apte, who helped him do it, were both shot at Ambala Central Jail in November 1949. Rudyard Kipling’s book Kim also talks about Ambala Cantt.

Kos Minar near Ambala
The Kos Minars, also called “Mile Pillars,” were built by the Pashtun king Sher Shah Suri in the 16th century along the Grand Trunk Road in the northern Indian subcontinent. The Kos Minars were built to mark the distance between Agra and Ajmer, Agra and Lahore, and Agra and Mandu in the south.
Most Kos Minars can be found in the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, and Punjab. They can be found along roads, train tracks, paddy fields, and in many towns and villages.
Early European travelers, such as Sir Thomas Roe, called the Kos Minars a “marvel of India.” The Archaeological Survey of India calls them “an important part of India’s national communication system.”
