History

The History of the district Rewari is contemporary to the history of Delhi. During MAHABHARTA period there was a king named Rewat He had a daughter whose name was Rewati. But the king used to call her Rewa lovingly. The king founded and established a city named “Rewa wadi” after the name of her daughter. Later on Rewa got married with Balram, elder brother of Lord Krishna and the king donated the city “Rewa wadi”as dowry to her daughter. Later the city Rewa wadi became REWARI.

The majority of the castes which lived in Rewari was Morya, Gupts and Gujjars. Although now the majority is of the Ahirs, all castes live with harmony. In the city the Punjabis and Guptas have hold on the business.
