British eraEdit

During the Chalisa famine of 1783–84, the people abandoned this town, which was repopulated in 1816 during british raj by a person named Rattan Singh (not to be confused with the founder Rattan Nath). The Maharaja of Patiala State constructed a fort here as an outpost.[1] Located at a distance of 12 km from Ratia tehsil, Kunal is one of the oldest pre-Harappan settlements and dates back roughly to the 5th millennium BC. The roughly 6,000-year-old site holds within it a rich legacy and its ties to the past can possibly help trace the history of Haryana, and the country. First discovered in 1986, excavations in Kunal have taken place over different seasons in 1992–93, 1996–97, 1998–99, 1999–2000, 2001-2002 and 2002–2003.
