History of rohtak

The history of Rohtak dates back to the Vedic days. Discovered by the Jats, the region known as Rohtashgarh, was home to several Aryans who migrated from elsewhere. Ruins and remnants in Khokrakot depict that the city had its presence even during the days of Indus Valley Civilization. Rohtak probably owes its name either to the Khokrakot- Rotasgarh sites which bear ruins of the ancient kingdom of Rohtas or the Rohira trees which were abundantly grown in this region. \n\nIt is believed that Rohtika (a city mentioned in Mahabharata) and the present day Rohtak are same. The Khushana Pilaar, which was recovered, bears testimony to the fact that the town existed during the Kushan rule. The pillar capital is adorned with winged lions’ carvings, quite similar to the one that is there in British Museum situated in London. The riders in the carving bear a resemblance to those found in Karle caves and Sanchi Gateway.
