Rohtak

Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Haryana  /  Rohtak District  /  Rohtak
Rohtak is a city and the administrative headquarters of the Rohtak district in the Indian state of Haryana. It lies north west of New Delhi, just 40–45 km from Delhi Border and south of the state capital Chandigarh on NH 10. Rohtak forms a part of the National Capital Region (NCR), which provides immediate benefits for the district as it can secure loans for infrastructure development at cheaper rates from the NCR Planning Board (NCRPB).Rohtak is the sixth most populous city in Haryana as per the 2011 census with population of 374,292 and has literacy rate of 84.08.HistoryIt is believed that the city's name is of Indo-Aryan origin and is recorded in the Vedas. It was founded by the Vedic people, and was named Rohtashgarh. Many aryans migrate in this city. The Jats & Rajputs of Rohtak under the leadership of Khokhar, attacked Mahmud Gaznavi and also accompanied Khokhar Jats in 1206 AD against Mohmad Gouri. Subsequently the evolution of the named is traced as "Rohītaka-kula > Rohitaka > Rohtak" and Michael Witzel notes that this accords with the place existing around 500 BC. The same source also suggests that the name may have derived from the tree Rohitaka as well, a tree well known in the area for its superb timber.
