Jind is a city of historical and mythological importance. It is believed that here a Jayanti Devi Temple was built in honour of Jayanti Devi (The Goddess of Victory) by Pandavas. Slowly the town was developed around the temple hence the name Jaitapuri turned Jind.
The excavations of archaeology indicate that this city was ruined for five times but every time it prospered again with full spirit. The archaeological findings also link to the presense of pre-Harappan era at this place. It is said that Lord Rama passed from this city at the time of Sita’s 'swayamwara' to break the Shiva’s bow.
Interestingly, Jind was also one of the first Sikh kingdoms.
