The Vedic traditions have flourished in this region since ancient times, with the city finding mention in revered Indian epics and scriptures such as the Mahabharata and the Rig Veda. Legends are abounding about how the region got its name from an ancient King’s daughter, Rewati, who married the elder brother of Lord Krishna and received this land as a dowry. Rewari has been known as ‘Veer Bhoomi’ (the land of the patriots) for giving rise to countless brave warriors and freedom fighters, including ancient king Hem Chandra Vikramaditya and Rao Tularam. The locals have continued the rich tradition of bravery to this day, and pride themselves on swelling the ranks of the Indian armed forces with many sons from their land. Rewari’s Rail Heritage Museum is a must for every traveler, as it brings back fond memories of steam locomotives with its unique collection.
