As per legend, the hill station of Kasauli was created by the feet of Lord Hanuman. While on his journey to Sanjeevani Hill, to get herb for Laxman (Lord Ram?s brother); he placed his feet here. Later in 17th century, Rajputs from Rewari Haryana settled in a town that they named Kasul. Some people say, Kasauli got its name from the mountain stream Kausalya that flows near this hill station. As time went by, the region became a part of the Gurkha expansion and later was turned into a sanatorium and cantonment in 1842.
