Origin of the name Narnaul

Narnaul has its place back in the Mahabharata era as the name of Nar Rashtra. It was also found that around 900 years back, the jungle of this town was covered with lions and thus is given the name Naharnaul which means “the horror of lions”. Also, it was said to be that Raja Launkaran give it the name “Narnaul” from his wife’s name, i.e. Narlaun.

History in Narnaul

Having an extensive account in Indian history, Narnaul is mentioned at many parts but the whole information about its past is still not have been recognized. Initially, the town was under the rule of Jogis, and after then Rathor Rajputs reign over it until it was acquired by Mohammedan. According to the historical accounts, Narnaul was very much related to Sur-Afghans. It was said that Ibrahim Khan (Sher Shah’s Grandfather) initially arrived at this place and in order to meet up the everyday expenditure of forces of forty horsemen, the administrator of Narnaul Firoz-i-Hisar gave him the town with some adjacent villages. When Ibrahim Khan died, his son Hasan Khan, who was then the supplanter of Humayun got the post of Jagirdar in Narnaul. Later after Panipat’s second war, the jagir of Narnaul was gifted to Shah Kuli Mahram by the emperor Akbar on the capture of Hemu, the popular fighter general. During Akbar’s reign, Narnaul possessed a mint, i.e. an industry where currency coins are manufactured and to keep an eye over it Akbar himself several times visited the place with Raja Todarmal and Khwaja Shah Mansur. Birbal, part of the precious nine jewels of Akbar, also explored the town and Birbal’s Chhata is specifically made in the memory of his visits. The popular Jalali coin was manufactured in the same mint at Narnaul and was issued by Akbar.

There is one other account related to Narnaul that is found in Indian History. In the reign of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, there was revolt caused by Satnami Sadhus against the restraint caused by Muslim Jagirdar. This developed into hazardous communal riot and Faujdar was killed by Satnamis and this followed their capture over Narnaul which caused huge chaos and Aurangzeb himself had to arrive with his armed forces. Later, one more event was recorded when the Narnaul’s Nawab Taherbeg kidnapped a satnami girl and was killed by Satnamis. A phrase in Hindi was also found in history which gives the evidence of this event, i.e.

"Satnamis Sat se lare, Lekar hath me Teg,Narnaul ke gorve, mara diya Taherbeg."

Following the Mughal Empire’s collapse after Aurangzeb’s death, four thakur hailing from Jaipur captured Narnaul. Soon, the town came under the French General, De-Boigne and followed by Murtza Khan Baraich who became the Jagirdar. Following the same roots, Abdur Rahman who was Jhajjar’s Nawab at that time, decide to rebel against British Empire in 1857. Following the battle of Narnaul, this happened in the days of First war of Independence and resulted in Abdur and his followers hanged by British.
