District Library, Jhajjar


There are many stories behind the origin of the name 'Jhajjar'. According to one theory Jhajjar got its name from the Jhajj clan of the Jat or Zat tribe. The 2nd one claims that the town was founded by one Chaju and was called Chajunagar and was eventually changed into Jhajjar. The 3rd theory advocates that the name was derived from Jharnaghar, a natural fountain. The 4th story claims that the name has been derived from Jhajjar, a water vessel, because the surface drainage of the adjoining areas for miles around runs into the town as into a sink.

The Jhajjar district was carved out of Rohtak district on July 15th, 1997. The library was established on 26th February 2007.
