District Library, Narnaul
Narnaul is not a district by itself but the district headquarter of district Mahendargarh. The Mahendargarh district was formed a year after the independence of India in 1948 by combining different tracts of erstwhile princely states of Patiala, Jind, Dadri and Nabha.
There are different versions regarding the origin of the town Narnaul. According to one view the town dates back to the Mahabharta era and was famous as Nar Rashtra. Another story dates its origin 900 years back, when it was a forest area and Lions 'roamed freely' here and thus it was called Narnaul (fear of Lions). There is still one more version of the legend that asserts that it was named Narlaun by King Launkaran after his wife's name.
