Kala Amb Tree Site Overview

Ranked 9 of 9 sightseeing in Panipat

The Kala Amb Tree is a popular sightseeing spot of Panipat situated at a distance of 8 km from the city. This tree spot is the place where Sadashiv Rao Bhau located his Maratha troops during the 3rd  battle of Panipat. It is a memoir dedicated to the Maratha soldiers, who sacrificed their life in this battle. Kala Amb is a black mango tree, whose dark colour foliage gave it its name.

Apart from the tree, being the attraction of the place, there are many other places of interest near this site like cosmopolitan malls offering shopping and entertainment opportunities along with a handloom and textile market. There is also a black pillar with an iron rod situated in the place, which is surrounded by an iron fence. Renovation and maintenance of this site is under the supervision of a society built by the Governor of Haryana. Several remains of ancient buildings and structures that are of archaeological and historical importance  are also present around this place.

A heartbreaking example of poor maintenance & lack of awareness

Place - This used to be a great hangout place but lack of maintenance threw it off the radar and now very few people visit it.Activity - There is a lawn and a small restaurant which isn't operational. That's pretty much it. You can play cricket/football but the last time I went, the guard asked us to not play that.Recommendation - Honestly, this place can be skipped. There is hardly any attraction left and there is a really good chance that you'll be the only one there. Still, if you want to pay a visit, a sunny afternoon in winters will be the best.DO take your own vehicle and food. The place isn't well connected and restaurant can be nonfunctional at times.
