Located on the outskirts of Panipat, about 8 kilometres away from it; the Kala Amb is a historical site of great importance. This majestic ground witnessed the third battle of Panipat between the Maratha warriors and the Afghan army, and thus holds immense significance in the history of India. If legends are to be believed, the war ground, as well as the other plantations in the vicinity, turned black due to the uncontrolled bloodshed that took place in the war. The mango tree situated in the centre of the ground started to bear back fruits, and gave the land the name of 'Kala Amb'.
Ironically enough, people now visit the area to enjoy some quiet moments in the peaceful surroundings of the park. There is an altogether different and inexplicable kind of aura in the park and its vicinity, which somehow pacifies and composes all its visitors. The site is currently being developed and beautified by society in Panipat, with the Governor of Haryana as its President. The Ror Maratha community also organises an annual event at this site to honour the valiant soldiers who passed away, and this programme is a must attend.
