It is said that Kaurav prince Duryodhan gave "Ang Raaj" as a gift to Karna so he become eligible to fight the Pandav Prince. This "Ang Raaj" was later developed by Karna which is Karnal today.

Meanwhile Raja Gurdit Singh of Ladwa obtained possession of Karnal. It was captured by the British in 1805 and made over to Muhamdi Khan (Mandal). Karnal, on being formed into a British cantonment, the fort which had been built by Raja Gajpat singh of Jind, was taken over by the British and converted into a residence for Dost Mohd.
