The name Ambala was derived from the word "Ambaal" which literally means a mango-like fruit. The name would be attributed to a large number of mangoes grown in this region. Another theory suggests that Ambaal refers to the temple of goddess Amba, who is considered as incarnation or avatar of Goddess Parvati (Shakti). This place has been mentioned in several ancient texts and scriptures, including Mahabharata, Vayu Purana and Skanda Purana. It is also believed that Ambala city got its name after King Bhagiratha's son Pravarasena II had built a beautiful temple dedicated to Goddess Ambe Maa on the banks of river Saraswati (Ghaggar) around 3200 BC; later it came into existence by king named Bhupatindra Pal Tomar during 8th century AD when he ruled over this area with his capital at Karnoul near present day Hisar district Haryana state India .
