History of Ramnagar
The ancient name of Ramnagar was Ahichhatra the capital of Northern
Panchala of Mahabharata times. The Ramnagar town was established and settled
by Commissioner H. Ramsay in 1856-1884. During the British Rule tea gardens
were developed in Ramnagar and in the nearby villages in Uttarakhand.
But these tea gardens have been closed since a long time. The nearby Jim
Corbett National Park is named after the hunter turned conservationist
James Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment.

which was established in 1936 and attracts lots of tourists from India
and other countries.
