Calm developing city with lots of joyful people

Have visited Ambala many times in life and seen almost every attraction here. It was a developing city mainly relies on agriculture you can see beautiful fields here and lots of agricultural activities tractors and historic places. Its still developing and roads are not in best conditions and you will find people joyful and friendly. Peasants have their farms and cattles and some malls are also opened now hotels are also their although needs much improvement in hotels but still this city is worth a visit.

Ambala, city of colours

Ambala is a nice place to be in winters, as the weather is great, there are many places for sight seeing in Ambala such as Gurudwara Panjhokra sahib, and also Ambala is only 40km from Chandigarh so you can go to Chandigarh in one hour and the highway is also nice

Ambala Overview

History of Ambala

It is believed that this place was founded by Amba Rajput and was hence named 'Ambala'. According to another version, the district is called so because there is a famous temple of goddess Bhawani Amba in Ambala City. According to books of ancient history, Aryans resided at Saphera, which was the capital of Sangwan country in ancient times and is part of the Ambala district. Ambala became a district in 1847. The Ambala Cantonment was formed in 1843 when the British left their cantonment at Saphera, because of the malaria epidemic of 1841-42. At present, the cantonment includes the '2 Corps', which is one of the 3 Strike Corps of the Indian Army. The Ambala Air Force Base on the other hand is one of the oldest and biggest airbases inherited from the British by the Indian Air Force.

Many changes have been made to the boundaries of Ambala district from time to time, and at present, it includes Ambala, Jagadhri, Saphera, Pipli, Mohali, Kharar, Ropar and Nalagarh. Kalka-cum-Kurari State, Manimajra, Pinjore, Kasauli and Sanawar.

Things To Do in Ambala

There are numerous places to visit in and around Ambala. One of the major attractions is the Bhawani Amba Temple, devoted to goddess Bhawani.
