Ambala has withstood the test of time and is now regarded as one of Haryana’s ancient cities. Archaeological findings point to the fact that the land was occupied by people as far back as the Paleolithic Age. During British rule in India, Ambala played a significant role in the struggle against Imperialism. Ambala is also referred to as a town of scientific instruments. It is divided into two halves – the Ambala cantonment and Ambala city. Both areas are about three kilometres apart from each other. In the cantonment area, the Indian Army and Indian Air Force have a significant presence. The cantonment came into existence in 1843, after the British gave up on its cantonment at Karnal. The cantonment is home to the ‘two corps’. Therefore, it is of great strategic importance. Ambala is also quite important from a tourist perspective.
