Ambala Cantt


According to the city's history, the area was created in the 14th century by Amba Rajput. It is also thought that the name Ambala is a corruption of Amba Wala, which means "mango village," referring to the nearby mango orchards. Another theory is that the city was named after the goddess "Bhawani Amba," whose temple still stands in Ambala.
